    I finally found somewhere to post it. Here's my interpretation of the "Man or Muppet" scene for a project for my Advanced Video Class:



    There's a lot of notable mistakes (especially with the mirror and some of the framing of shots), but everyone I've showed it to loves it, so I can't complain. Enjoy it anyways!

    (BTW, the "man" of the monster is very much like the movie, where you have to know the person to get the joke. Plus, I got the first kid hooked on the song through this and we're taking him to the movie on Tuesday.)

    LOL!!! I didn't have to know your "Sheldon Cooper" to get it, I was still cracking up!

    Oh and my seven year old loved it too - "That was so funny!" :D Good work!

    I just about died, just to let you know. And now everyone at the college computer lab is staring at me. XD

    Finally got the chance to view this. VERY cute, well done! Is the Muppet of a man you?
    It kind of makes sense to set this song in a school, too. I like that aspect particularly.

    No, that's not me; I'm the puppeteer though.

    Ah, even better, as I thought the puppets' body movements were very expressive! Great job! :)

    I had no idea man.

    I tweeted this video to Bill Baretta and he replied "Nice job guys!" It's not much, but the acknowledgement is what counts.

    Ok. This was AWESOME!!!! Can I say I love the dude who played the human Walter??!! He did a fantastic job of "Sheldon-like" mouth movements.

    Now I wanna upload a similar version. (lip syncing muppet with actual song over it). You had posted that your video got flagged on YouTube correct?

    Should I even try to post it on YouTube or just do Vimeo?

    Thanks!!! And REALLY GREAT JOB!!!

    Der, follow up video! The music video became kinda popular among my friends and backstage during our spring musical, us boys were just chilling and I put this song on. Here are the two humans from the video singing along:



    It's funny in a different way!
