    Watch the Muppets latest music video and discover what Beaker does in his off time.

    This video was amazing! I hope we get to see more things like this in The Muppets. It's very interesting to see what happens when Beaker goes home. :eek:

    By the way, where have I seen the door at 0:31 seconds in? It looks familiar. Muppet*Vision 3D maybe?

    After listening to this surprise release, I knew the song instantly. Did a bit of searching and here are some interesting facts. The song is sung by a group of rats called The Ratler Brothers as a parody of The Statler Brothers (no relation to the Muppets' constant heckler) who originally recorded the song in 1965.

    If you know this song, then something didn't click when watching the video. That's because this being the Muppets they changed a few lines. "Watching instagrams and playing tons of sudaku", "catching up on all the things I've been meaning to do", and "mixing combustible chemicals the whole night through" are new lines; the original line is supposed to be "smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo".

    Fun video and this totally made my day feel better.

    Yes. It would have been better if they let me take a picture with Steve and Kermit.

    Probably their best video since "Bohemian Rhapsody." I loved everything about it.

    What I loved about this video was the fact that it depicted exactly what Steve was talking about in his MuppetCast interview. Beaker goes home to his little apartment after work every night and is always alone due to not being able to speak to anyone.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Steve came up with the entire thing.

    Edit: I was just snooping around the ToughPigs forum and someone who was at Dragon Con said it actually was Steve's idea. So there you go.

    Er, there's the Dragon*Con 2015 thread in the Henson People section. :eek:

    It really goes to show that Beaker and Bunsen need each other. Like that episode of Muppets Tonight where Beaker goes on the Star Trek cruise and Bunsen becomes depressed without him. That segment in this video where he has a fake Bunsen seals it. Seriously. I don't get the Ernie and Bert...eh... meme because Bunsen and Beaker drop not so subtle hints, especially lately.

    But great video. Glad to see they're doing more of these.

    I don't think Beaker's going to be able to get his security deposit back, lol. Good video.

    This shows Steve Whitmire's wonderful talents beautifully. The way he has taken Beaker a one dimensional character and gives him depth is amazing. I really think Richard Hunt would be very proud.

    Got 2 see it! LOL love this one! Great humor and story of :eek: after work. Country-singing rats, dynamite balloon, nice animation for the wall flowers, and an explosive finale (classic!)--Also, I can relate to Beaker. I'm doing experimental animation for our small 3-Point group, but my Mom fears I'm wasting my time, "nothing to do", having no 'real' job yet. :sigh:

    A lot of work went into this video. It's so well done (and so was Beaker at the end)! Thanks for sharing.

    Just what I thought too. I love it when they make these music videos. I wish they would make more for different genres.

    This is actually kind of depressing.

    Though I still enjoyed it.
    Beaker feels lonely and utterly-bored without Honeydew?
    Ouch. :eek:

    "Ernie and Bert...eh...meme?"

    What meme?
