Kermit the Frog Toys With My Emotions While Looking for a 'Needle in the Hay'

Posted on

I’m not sure how to feel about this clip. It provokes a bouillabaisse of emotions: comfort, nostalgia, sadness, laughter, astonishment. I’m torn between giddily running around the office looking for someone to show this to and looking for someone to give me a hug.

The dudes (or dudettes) behind this went so far as to both multi-track Kermit’s vocals to match the original Elliott Smith version and shoot this in a way that partially mirrors the scene in The Royal Tenenbaums that so memorably used “Needle in the Hay.”
