    Why is it that they keep winning Webby awards and we haven't had any viral videos that weren't advertisements for the movie since Popcorn?​

    It's time to start those up again.

    My idea of a 5 word speech:

    :sing: Aw, ANIMAL!

    The Muppets win the internet! AGAIN!

    Speech for the Mahna Mahna Phenomena:
    MM: Mahna mahna
    Snowths: Doo doo doo--.

    It would drive everybody crazy. :crazy:

    I'm getting in the betting pool as to what the speeches will be...

    -Sesame: "Five's Number of the Day!"

    -Mahna: Snowths and Mahna Mahna show up to accept award -
    Snowths: "Do doo do do do"
    Mahna opens his mouth to speak and Snowths shush him, savoring their rare victory!

    - Ok Go: OK Go show up with a Muppet (could be anyone, but i'll use Bobo as my hypothetical representative)
    Bobo: "Ok...GO!"
    OK Go member: "Yes?"
    Bobo: "That's it!"

    I don't know what makes me happier...

    - That Muppets keep getting embraced by the internet public with these awards almost annually


    - That none of these had anything to do with either "Life's a Happy Song", "A BaZillion Likes" or "Wocka Wocka 'Value' Packs".

    Right on! Hopefully this will result in more Muppet virals! (Don't just wait for the next wave of promotions for the new movie...Strike while the iron's hot!!!)

    YES! I love that figure of speech too! I agree!

    Here here! The Muppets need to be doing something to keep them in the spotlight IN BETWEEN the movies instead of falling in the usual trap of waiting too long between major projects and "disappearing" only to have to "make another comeback" by the time the next project's ready. The virals (or even more new stuff at muppets.com) is definately the way to go.
