The Muppets are everywhere these days with the release of James Bobin’s The Muppets looming, and I am in no way complaining. Last week we brought you some clips of popular bands covering your favorite Muppet songs on Muppets: The Green Album, and now the music video for OK Go’s cover of the “Muppet Show Theme Song” has been released. The band has a penchant for crazy YouTube-hit inducing videos, but this one is actually more or less straightforward, except for the whole Muppet thing. Most of the Muppets make an appearance in the video and are expectedly cute/awesome.
Hit the jump to watch the video. The film stars Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper and a bajillion cameos. Be sure to check out Steve’s interview with Segel from the D23 convention as well as Tommy’s recap of the film’s presentation. The Muppets opens November 23.
Here’s the music video:
Here’s the official synopsis for The Muppets:
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary’s girlfriend 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. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, Disney’s “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.
