The Muppets Debut A New Music Video
Time to sing the sequel song...

27 February 2014  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Disney

What do you expect when the Muppets make a movie, or indeed, anything? Well, aside from Fozzie’s awful jokes, Miss Piggy’s hyper self-regard and Kermit attempting to keep the whole ramshackle business together, there will be musical numbers. With sequel Muppets Most Wanted on the horizon, here’s a new song from the gang about the very process of making a sequel. 

This being the Muppets, of course, it’s a little cleverer than most, poking fun at the fact that follow-ups are often not as good as the original and pondering just what they’ll do for a plot this time (Fozzie, for example, appears not to have watched The Muppets at all).

Featuring quick snippets of new footage along with a lot of moments we’ve seen in trailers, this is a fun little ditty with a catchy hook. So light the lights, dress up right, put on makeup and take a look.

Muppets Most Wanted finds Kermit and the gang off on a European tour when they are infiltrated by diabolical criminal Constantine (who just happens to be the spitting image of our green hero) and have to thwart his plan. With Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, Ty Burrell, Zach Galifianakis, Salma Hayek, Christoph Waltz and a certain Mr. T. Hiddy among those scheduled to pop up, it’ll be in our cinemas on March 28. For more on the film, check out the latest, Godzilla-fied issue of Empire, which features our visit to the film’s set.

I wish the voice-over guy hadn't spoken at the end. Apart from that, good video! More
