Video: OK Go Spoofs Selves in ‘Muppet Show Theme Song’ Video


Muppets: The Green AlbumThe official music video for the ‘Muppet Show Theme Song’ has made its debut today, as the Muppets Green album becomes available for sale from retailers such as Amazon.com and iTunes.

The song, written by Jim Henson and Sam Pottle, opened and closed “The Muppet Show” for five seasons in the UK and US, from 1976-1981. The new track was produced by OK Go and mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT). ┬áSays singer Damian Kulash, “I’m so excited about working with the Muppets that I can hardly sleep. Collaborating with your idols is a huge thrill no matter what, but when your idols are fictional characters it seems downright impossible. The 10-year-old me was pretty good at imagining outrageous futures, but this surpasses even his capacities.”
