    >>>Ok, I know this is going to sound stupid (I don't listen to music much), but who the heck is Weezer?<<<

    This spoovy-worthy geeky indie rock band, kind of in that nerdy college rock vein. very cool! And that pic of the Muppets together with them is too cool!

    Cool stuff - it seems puppets and nostalgia characters making appearances on TV are the 'in' thing right now. First ya got ALF in 10-10-220 commercials, then ya got that Blink 182 video where theres Oompa Loompas and Mr Miyagi. Sounds like fun !

    The Happy Days video rocked !

    OMG!

    *drools* *faints* *wakes up*

    This is one of the greatest days of my life! My abosolute favorite band and my absolute favorite tv stars together in a video! Wow! You guys should really pick up Weezer's new CD Maladroit. And by the way, keep fishin', the song in the video, is a really great kind of ska-ish tune. You should really download it!

    You're certainly living up to yours. ;)

    "Dead puppeteer" is actually in honor of Jim Henson. Sort of. ;)

    In reality the "Alf" ads are just about as successful as the Pepe ones for "Long John Silver" - and market research suggests that the prawn was actually repulsive to some viewers. As for the "Dennys" ads, you can expect more of the same. Some things can't come back. The Muppets are a novelty act that couldn't stand the test of time. The last Muppet movie - built around Gonzo of all characters (talk about repulsive) - flopped miserably, remember? CGI is what kids and adults like when it comes to 3-D characters. Who wants to watch talking socks anymore?

    Oh, I get it, this is spose to be a parody of a disaffected lurker?

    I think I can hit the J.O.S.H. alarm;)

    And oh yessss, cgi is used sooo effectively. Like Scooby Doo and Free Willy 2!

    What stuff on weezer.com (which is the offical site). All I saw were three pictures, and the quotes from Piggy and Kermit. What I want to know is what the story of the video is, who came up with the idea, etc etc etc. I'm really excited about this. Weezer has done some really cute videos in the past, and had some really great songs too.

    Henson would LOVE to make the kind of money even substandard CGI can help a movie rake in. ;) And speaking of "Scooby Doo" - that's a pretty old property, but it did just fine as a movie. Part of the reason is that, unlike "The Muppet Show", which virtually nobody will watch anymore, the Scooby cartoon is constantly run on Cartoon Network and elsewhere, so today's kids are up on it, even though it's something their parents once watched. The fact that "Scooby Doo", as lame as it was, is today still popular and is also waaaayy more popular than Kermit the Oven Mitt is a real kick in the butt for the doll-wigglers up at HA! ;)

    Hey i talked to a friend of mine and he said he really likes the band and has seen them live before, he also said the the drumer is from a place in my area!


    another friend of mine said that the band is insane! I said "oh! then they will be prefect for the Muppets then"!!


    Zack)Rowlf the, I e-mailed the site and they said they "might have a DVD out later this year"Dog.

    yeah!!! the new photo's are great! that back stage would be perfect for the new show!!!

    gonzo,camilla(or just a chicken)animal and pepe are shown!

    what about RIZZO!!! where is he? he really has been dumped on this year, no nascar but pepe gets one, no busts but because he wasn't a major character back then, i haven't even seen any new stuff like the stuff at hot topic and spences with rizzo just mainly kermit, piggy and animal, my brother saw female kermit pantys at hot topic yesturday.eek:
    there was a new muppet sticker that he ripped off the tage and gave to me, oh Alex...i guess it was nice thing to do,

    Zack)Rowlf the, he bought me a kermit mirro for my graduation thought;-)Dog.

    Cool stuff! I hope the vid does well! Weezer certainly has some good taste! I was glad to see Rowlf, but I hope Scooter and the EM make an appearance. Can't see why they wouldn't! Unless the puppets aren't in good shape.

    Kermit Panties ? So any of the gals feel the urge to model these for the collectables section ? ;-)

    it's the muppet show. weezer is the special guests. right when that are about to take the stage they realize their drummer is missing. the remaining band members are backstage asking kermit what they should do. kermit says for them not to worry, they've handled stuff like this before and they handle it (he hopes). the crowd is cheering for weezer to come out which prompts gonzo's line, wow! i've never been apart of a show people actually wanted to see.

    meanwhile, in piggy's dressing room we find pat, the drummer, tied to a chair. piggy asks if he can resist her. he replies, i cannot, right now, i cannot.

    kermit nervously intros the band and the music starts. animal is playing drums with the band.

    piggy is looking in her closet for something to wear and pat shuffles over in the chair and slams the door locking her in. he then hops out of the room still tied to the chair.

    during the song the other muppet join weezer on backing volcals while pat hops through various scenes like the chef's kitchen and muppet labs. as he hops backstage, the chef taking a swing at a chicken slices pat's ropes freeing him and they all wind up on stage for the big finale.

    cute vid.

    Hello Jamie,


    Hey don't forget Statler and Waldorf! what's odd is that there is no Rizzo,as goes for the Nascars, he's not even in any of the photo's or clips.

    JohnFranklin seems to know much on the video and posted a cast list, i'm wondering if that random bunny is Bean Bunny, still very funny that there is no Rizzo.

    if Statler is not in this as he wasn't posted along with Waldorf that means Jerry Nelson's characters aren't a part of this, seeing that we don't see Robin or Floyd in it either.

    the Electric Mayhem would be neat as so Scooter as well.

    you can never have the "whole" gang together, I hope to see the whole Muppet gang together someday,someone is always left out! and i don't mean like lips, mildred,droop, or uncle deadly characters, I mean like Bunsen, Scooter, Rizzo,and the Swedish Chef.



    Zack)Rowlf the, I'll just mention that there is no Sam the Eagle and Sweetums in this video as well,but at least there is Rowlf!!!Dog.

    Re: Jamie

    the bunny is not bean bunny. it's just a random rabbit. scooter and the electric mayhem are not in the video.
