why the muppet show should still be around

A few months ago, I was watching Weezer’s Keep Fishin’ video, and I was thinking about how much fun it looks like they all had making that video, and how it would be so great if the Muppet Show were actually still around and today’s pop artists could make guest appearances on it. And suddenly, I had this vision of Rufus Wainwright as the guest artist on the Muppet Show – and I couldn’t get out of my head how AWESOME that would be. Can’t you just see him doing a dance number? Serenading Miss Piggy (or Kermit, for that matter)? It’d be amazing..

This is why the Muppet Show should still be around. We started brainstorming other artists that would make a good fit – you know, the right mix of raw solo talent, charisma, and celebrity appeal that they’d be awesome/fun on the Muppet Show:

  • Andrew Bird
  • Regina Spektor
  • Outkast
  • Stephen Merrit (Magnetic Fields)
  • The Roots

Okay, now you go.. Who else?
