The Muppified video for Kanye’s Monster jam is downright hilarious, and just might be better than the twisted circus of the original video. Watch out for that Piggy Minaj verse:
The above video was brought to you by the team at content creation site The Galaxy World. Michael DiSalvo, the team’s “ideas man,” says the concept came from a failed project that’s better off dead anyway.
“The original idea was born out of our failure to produce a video of a man in a bee costume dancing to the Black Eyed Peas’ Imma Be,” DiSalvo says. “We like to think of it as our redemption. The team spent hours pouring over Muppet movies and YouTube clips and tried to find anything that presented the Muppets in their true, rough
“Naturally, we take things very literally, especially Kanye lyrics, because it is pretty obvious that he is a very literal and realistic person.” Footage was pulled from The Muppet Christmas Carol, The Muppet Movie, The Muppets Take Manhattan, as well as Sesame Street and The Muppet Show.
As for why he thinks the Muppets are such a popular vehicle for parody, DiSalvo said, “Growing up, everyone loved the Muppets, but they were always so innocent. It’s fun to apply their whimsical and childish look to adult themes. It’s so out of place, that it’s entertaining.”
