Yesterday I got this video sent to me from Walt Disney uk yesterday however the video was quickly dropped for a reason, its because today the video was officially released the theme tune from The Muppets by OK GO starring The Muppets! Yeahhh!!!
Been now in my 30’s i’m of that age group who can remember when Jim Henson rules the tv primetime slots back in the 1980’s with our favourite puppets, it was true family entertainment that all members of your family could enjoy but now nearly 3 decades on they are returning to the big screen. The song is part of the ‘Green Album’ a collection of Muppets songs covered by the likes of Weezer, The Fray, Alkaline Trio and Amy Lee and OK GO are renowned for spoofing music videos so its no surprise they got the theme!
Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper along with a host of thousands of cameos will star but as we know the true stars of this movie are Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and gang, still a long way to go until the movie arrives in UK& Ireland February 2012!
Check out the cool video OK GO does The Muppets Theme Tune!
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate.
