The Muppets cover LCD Soundsytem in Brighton

The Muppets where in Brighton, England this past weekend enjoying the beach a quick hour train ride outside of London. Somehow while cruising the town they managed to get all their musical equipment on top of a store, set it all up, and play an unreal cover of LCD Soundsystem's Dance Yrself Clean to those passing by below. With Kermit on vocals (taking the place of James Murphy), Cookie Monster on keys, and Ms. Piggy as backup dancer/groupie, they really put on a show! One of their band members got hammered on the beach during the set on my favorite cheap beer in England, Kronenbourg, and passed out. That evening while one of the band members played a DJ set in a club on the beach, Kermit and Ms. Piggy hook up on the beach in what I imagine led to a lovely hand whammy for Kermit. I never knew The Muppets were such rock stars until this day. This is simply amazing. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do.

Lots of love,
