    Wha huh? Is he rully married? Or are you falling for the same fan-belief I did when asking Jim Louis about that ring on his hands... Which are Jane Gutnik's hands. And because she's married, the Chef wears a ring by consequence.

    New Video: Muppets Lost Promo #3

    Here's another New Muppet Lost promo!

    In this one Pepe, Bobo The Bear and Big Mean Carl audition for the Smoke Monster. Funny stuff!

    Great job Muppets Studio! It’s fantastic to see the Muppets onboard with all the Lost hype as the show comes to an end this weekend. The Smoke Monster auditions are very reminiscent of the Odyssey promo from about ten years ago when the Muppets were auditioning for the part of Yoda.

    Even though it’s a minor quibble it would’ve been nice to see some of Steve’s characters like Kermit and Rizzo since we know Steve was there for the first promo.

    Again, Youtube blocked the video to ppl outside of America...stupid. Completely stupid.

    Well at least we still have those Celine Dion videos you guys can't watch there in America... but we can watch here in Canada! LOL

    Haha! I really enjoyed this new video! There's (almost) nothing funnier than Bobo auditioning for something...I loved when he read for Santa in VMC and when he read for Yoda on that Statler and Waldorf things before. Pepe was fantastic, and I love that (once again) he's showing that rather stunning ability to improvise and create new characters...as he did with Topo Sticky...with the weird mexican moustache.

    I found it interesting that Carl was given a little more to do than just eat someone. It adds a little more to his character. But, his shtick at the end never fails to make me laugh. I love the hiccup after his burp for some reason.

    That was Pepe at his best! I especially loved Bobo's "tick-tock" dance. It was fantastic! :)

    I feel like Carl should get the part of the Smoke Monster because he is a Monster. ;)

    I totally loved this video! I love me some Pepe these days...he cracks me up, and so does Bobo! Even Big Mean Carl was pretty "on" through this one! :D So exciting...I really hope we get to see more of the side characters in the viral form! :zany:

    The Kermit one is the worst... I wish I could stop thinking "Jim would have done it differently" after 20 years but I can't and that's why. Also, I seem to remember a video where Jim, Frank and Michael Frith were talking about how to perform Kermit, and Jim said you need to operate Kermit at a slight angle, otherwise Kermit kinda looks like a duck... guess what? Steve does the duck face.

    I find the Muppet videos to be the best thing about Lost and Steve does a fantastic job. :)

    Here's the Kermit segment. Still didn't get me interested in watching the program and aside from steering clear of reality TV I'm fairly liberal about what I watch.

    I've followed my friends' discussions about the program and the somewhat ambiguous ending is pretty much what I expected it would be. The show's really about the character journeys anyway. The rest is mostly Magoffin as was the big red ball/Rambaldi device in Alias. In the end, the intricacies of it all don't really matter and are never sufficiently explained. It’s a legitimate form of television entertainment, but I just wasn’t intrigued by this particular incarnation even with its stellar production value.

    Back to Kermit's performance here...well, there's no making everybody happy. It's officially been 20 years of Steve as the frog and I adore his Kermit. Incidentally, there was substancial knuckle used in forming his face during this clip as noted in the famous Jim/Frank/Frith discussion. The "duck" claim must be coming from a different performance or in the funny faces pulled by the frog at the end of the segment. I'm ecstatic about Steve, Bill, Dave, Eric and the gang working on the new Muppet movie without need for recasts! Woohoo. :) :o

    Oh, and did you catch the Bunsen & Beaker figures on the table?

    I totally agree with Kermit's reaction. I'm not even a fan of the show, and I find it a big Smoo to you to all the people who watched it since the beginning. Though, not quite as bad as the parody version of it from Arthur, where it turns out there's a land bridge there the entire time. But I'm still glad I didn't follow it. I would have been TICKED.

    But I'm gonna agree again. The Muppet promos are the only thing I actually care about as far as Lost goes. Not that it's bad, not that I hate it... I just couldn't get into it.

    Not sure how much of an old-school Muppet fan you are, but there was a video that the three of them did, where Jim and Frank brought out their main characters and talked about how they perform them, where the voices come from, what the personality is of each, and so forth. It's an interesting interview. In it, Jim talks about how, when he performs Kermit, he keeps him just slightly angled forward, because if he kept Kermit at an upright, straight angle, he'd look like a duck. The expression on his face was halfway to his expression when he's mad and scrunches his face up. He says, "You wanna arch him towards the camera a little, otherwise you have Kermit the Duck."

    If you want proof Steve does this, check out the May 14, 2010 issue of Entertainment Weekly on page 14. Steve does the duck face. I started really noticing it when they did those god-awful Pizza Hut commercials with Jessica Simpson... it's not just how Steve performs him, it's how he operates him as well.
