Muppets Song/Dance Sequence: Can Jason Segel Sing and Dance?

Of course The Muppets begins with a happy-clappy street symphony that looks like an outtake from Bjork's "It's Oh So Quiet." It's The Muppets, dammit! Perkiness on tap, puppetry on parade. Here, in this opening scene from the new movie, Jason Segel and his Muppet brother Walter don matching suits and sing about lovin' life. Because they do.

Next, I need Miss Piggy to writhe on the back of a flatbed truck to the tune of Bjork's "Big Time Sensuality." Something about Miss Piggy demands electronic beats and black-and-white cinematography.

Here's the full version of that song, "Life's a Happy Song." Now, do you have the whole wide world in the palm of your hand?

    Dear Louis,
    Every time you drop a Björk reference, I fall a little more in love.

    Hi there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Going through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I am going to send this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
