Fifty Shades of Grey mashup features Kermit, Miss Piggy
Leave it to Fifty Shades of Grey to make fans of The Muppets question how puppet love works.
YouTube channel Darth Blender lives up to its name — taking it to a new level, really — by channeling the dark side of Kermit and Miss Piggy, giving them the keys to Christian Grey’s Red Room of Pain. The parody, “Fifty Shades of Muppets,” features the on-again, off-again puppet couple over the years, cut to dialogue and music from the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer.
Miss Piggy steps out of her normally domineering typecasting to play the quiet and reserved Anastasia Steele, while Kermit shows a whole new side to his typically cheerful disposition as the brooding Grey. It all starts out innocent enough, with familiar scenes of Piggy dissing Kermit despite his fame, but by the end the green frog has a jar of Vasoline in hand (that’s footage of Kermit’s evil look-alike Constantine from Muppets Most Wanted, in case you’re wondering), while the queen of sass makes a face fans never want to see.
Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to the romantic drama, hits theaters Feb. 10, 2017.
