Funny video of the day: The Muppets "Stand By Me"

As far as viral marketing goes, very few really catch on in my book. I mean, there has been some really bad viral marketing campaign, like the Dorito's one from a few years back when you had to go to the website to figure out what they were actually advertising... I never actually made it to the website to find out.

Anyway, with that behind me, the new viral marketing that they've been doing for the upcoming Jason Segal muppet movie has been hysterical. If you haven't seen them, you should check out the videos of the muppet characters singing. The first one released was "Bohemian Rhapsody", then Beaker did a version, if you can call it that, of "Dust In The Wind". Now, just in time for Easter, Big Mean Carl is eating bunnies while singing "Stand By Me."

The last muppet movie that I watched, and have watched multiple times for god knows what reason, was Muppet Treasure Island, and while that may have been the best recent pirate movie to have been released, nothing good has come out of the muppet camp in awhile, so I'm glad to see a renewed interest in good stuff from my childhood (we'll see about that Smurfs thing).
