    You know what I really loved about this one? The fact that it was the most like an actual Muppet Show skit of all the other videos. Take the musical number out, and it's EXACTLY the same as a Muppet Show Swedish Chef segment. Not to mention the BEST Statler and Waldorf closing of the bunch.

    I really hope this wasn't the last of them and more will be made. But if they are to be made, I would really like to see more segments that were like the ones on the Muppet Show. Imagine Link Hogthrob and the cast of Pigs in Space performing Rocketman.

    Yeah then it would be a good oppurtunity to see Steve performing Link.

    Keep in mind that half the humor is in the captions. It's a very visual gag.

    Hi Kells. Yeah, the same goes with Beaker's Ballad, but at least I have it in my MUP3 albums and can listen to the entire piece uninterruptedly. Which is more than I can say about watching/listening to these on YouTube what with it's constant go-and-stop jerkiness. *Boober (Sigh) smilie.

    I agree with Dr. Tooth, this is the BEST Muppet video yet! This could go on the Muppet Show, if they did a remake. :):excited::hungry:

    I saw the wedding ring myself. Lots of Muppet people are married. it could be anyone!:hungry:

    It'd be neat to see that Swedish Chef married a turkey. :p

    If he did, then he probably would've already made her into an entree, if he hadn't already done so. :D

    Those are Jane Guttnik's (SP?) hands with the ring, I remember posting/asking about it in the Ask Jim Lewis thread.

    Sooooooo many wrong things just popped into my head, LOL.

    Still, even though on that commentary that the Chef ate the turkey in the BR video, on LTS we see him make amends with a turkey by making a tofurkey. C'mon, folks ... there's a fanfiction in the making right there. :D

    Those aren't her hands. Jim was just saying that she added the design aspect as the puppet builder. I would assume the hands belong to either Steve, Dave, Eric, or Matt, since Bill is doing the head.

    I'd love to see Disney putting these (or other new or classic bits) in front of theatrical films as "pre-movie shorts".

    Loved Waldorf's typing!

    Mybe it's just me, but something about the way the caption writers message to fans is written seems to be similar to how Jim Lewis' responses on the Ask Jim Lewis thread are written.
  17. theprawncracker

    theprawncracker Well-Known Member

    That would probably be because the captions were written by Jim Lewis. :D

    If this is ever released on a DVD (and I don't think a DVD release of any of these virmup videos would be far-fetched), they should definately include a subtitles feature for this one.

    This one also definately needs a Webby nomination for next year.

    I usually wait until the bar is completely red. Then it plays without stopping. At least it does for me.

    Yeah, but the thing is, does a reader let Ed know when the bar is red all the way? I doubt there are audio clues to that sort of thing.
