Yesterday, the Music Mix took you behind the scenes for a preview of OK Go’s video for “Muppet Show Theme Song,” their rendition of the classic opening tune from The Muppet Show.
The full version of the video premiered today, and it finds the men of OK Go taking a magical mystery tour through some of their old videos. There’s the classic “Here It Goes Again” (with cameos by Bunsen and Beaker), the Rube Goldberg-inspired “This Too Shall Pass” (starring Gonzo and Camilla), and even a little jab at the group’s dog-happy clip for “White Knuckles” (with special appearance by a sheep).
The string of fake-out gags at the end might be worth the price of admission alone (which, considering this is a video on the Internet, is zero dollars and zero cents), but the whole thing is a grinning technicolor marvel. Dig it after the jump.
The Muppets are on the comeback trail—not only do they have The Green Album (a collection of covers of some of the group’s most iconic tunes as interpreted by Weezer, Hayley Williams of Paramore, My Morning Jacket, and a bunch of others) coming out, but there is also a fresh film hitting your local film emporium this November, their first since 1999’s under-loved Muppets From Space.
The Green Album is available now, and the film (which is simply called The Muppets and stars Jason Segel and Amy Adams alongside Kermit, Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie, and the rest) will be out on November 23.
Also, that scene where the Muppets are operating the members of the band while they play their instruments is sort of creepy and unsettling, right?
