Movin' Right Along - Muppet Movie

Because everyone needs rapping Muppets to get them through Tuesday.

The best thing about the way the Muppets talk is probably their flappy less-than-articulated mouths.

Because you can put the audio of literally anything else on top of those flappy mouths, and it will probably fit. And look hilarious.

For example, Naughty By Nature's 1993 classic 'Hip Hop Hooray'. YouTube user Mylo the Cat gave the track the Muppet treatment by setting Vin Rock and Treach's vocals over clips of Kermit, Fozzie and the gang. 

And yep, it works amazingly well. Either that, or the Muppets are closeted fans of 90s hip hop.

It turns out Mylo has been making a whole series of these Muppet edits on his channel. Our favourites are probably Grover singing 'Get Lucky', Miss Piggy's 'Wrecking Ball', or the Swedish Chef, Beaker and Animal as the Beastie Boys in 'So Wat'cha Want'.
