If you don't agree with me on this then I'm amazed!
Well ::shrugs:: I've seen worse. I don't think it's that bad.
I think it's flattering that people like the characters so much no matter what their talent level. The disgrace is when the Muppets are hidden away from the public. This stuff is far from disgraceful. It's a good thing.
Without going into details, in light of possibly offending anyone here on MC, I'm amazed how so many people think their impressions of popular characters (Muppet or not) are so accurate, when they're not even close.
Having said that, I think it's a nice tribute when people actually do stuff like this. Is it good? That's a matter of personal opinion. Is it exposure for the characters? This video has over 9000 views, so clearly the Muppets are a hot topic!
Yeah, I thought is was actually pretty good! Sure, the voices don't match, the the singing was not all that bad at all!
It's not that bad, I have seen much, MUCH worse before.
I watched it and thought it was cute. It was fluff, but it was fun.
If bad impersonators is enough to make you mad enough to start a thread calling it a "disgrace", than please do yourself a favor and don't even brother searching for Muppets on Youtube, . I've seen Muppet related videos protraying the Muppets as homosexual (needless to say a famous buddy couple are usually the victims in this case, ), violent, "Emo," or cussing rappers. This really isn't that bad at all.
In fact sometimes I'll watch Elmo videos with my nephew on Youtube cause he loves Elmo. So I found a video that had both Kermit and Elmo and out of nowhere their heads blew up and blood was everywhere, . My nephew is only two, so I doubt it did any real damage and he still loves Elmo so much, but I freaked out and was super mad.
I know right, I've been thinking about that as well. I think the two fictional characters almost everyone thinks they can do a good impression of are Mickey Mouse (usually just doing a high pitch voice thinking that's all their is to the Mickey voice) and The Swedish Chef (which people usually just said the word "Bork" over and over again including a certain SNL member whom is actually making money for his god awful impression of the famous Muppet chef).
As for non-fictional characters people always think they can do a good Aronald Schwarzenegger and/or Micheal Jackson.
Ok Ok It's not a disgrace! But I don't know whether I can change the title of the thread or not....
Ok maybe it wasn't a disgrace but those are terrible impressions you have to admit. The Fozzie one is the worst. Also I feel sad for hearing about that video. There's some terrible cideos of muppets on there. But once I did see footage of a (shocking) episode of the muppet show where they one-by-one died. It was clearly (this time) real though so I wonder whether I can find out more about it. But anyway yeah, you might sometimes be better off looking on other video websites because Youtube can sometimes be the most untidy, shocking website out of the bunch. I just can't be bothered to make an account on some other website. It's only out of mass Interest I joined this one!
Oh I never said those were good impressions, they were god awful, . It even states in the video's title that it's bad.
I don't mind people doing silly things with the Muppets on youtube, even if it's a bit racy. As long as it's remotely intelligent...and funny, yeah that's kinda important too.
Yeah, I think lots of people always lack something with their kermit impression, even me probably but maybe not Steve Whitmire, but he was almost destined, by having the same birthday as Jim, working with him for years, and even making his own kermit once. I think my fozzie impression's way better than the guys in the video though, and it's not nessecarily great.
I couldn't get all the way through it! Fozzie's part sounded like a bad Rowlf impression!
In the book Of Muppets and Men, the authors is surprised to notice that Richard Hunt did a pretty good impression of Kermit for kids visiting the set and how he was unique in that he could perform other puppeteer's characters. Wish we could have heard that.
i dont think that its a disgrace. its a tribute. it doesnt have to be good. its the thought that counts
I kind of feel that if people want to do a tribute to there favort song or movie then make it as origanal ya know. Take Steve Swanson he has come up with some very interesting ways to do some wonderful tribuets to the Muppets and the people involved with them.
For anyone who thinks it's some sort of a tribute, IT'S NOT!
There's a link to some guy's blog and it's actually a cheap muppet songs album by a band called "Animal House". Somehow though I went to the level of finding the link to download the whole album and downloaded it.
Very bad imitation, but good song. However, they skipped the dialogue for the fork in the road bit. They also thankfully didn't try to do Big Bird in his cameo.
I can't understand why you'd be offended by this Fluffets.
I used to own the album from which this track comes from on audio cassette and I didn't think any of the muppet songs performed on it were disgraceful. I thought they did a wonderful album of their own versions of Henson Productions songs.
Separate names with a comma.
