The Muppets perform "Fuck The Police" (NSFW, obviously). That is all.

I remember seeing this video more than a year ago.

What gives? The voices are all wrong. Kermit doesn't sound anything like that.

I have trouble taking this seriously now that Kermit is staring in Homicide.

Best rick roll ever.

However, it is nonetheless a rick roll and you shall be burned alive for this transgression.

Can you have a 'best' rickroll ever? Surely some other adjective might be better applied?

meh. (na-meh-nah)

The "lip" synching on the rickroll video is pretty solid actually.

That was not at all clever.

Am I the only person left on the net who hasn't yet been Rickrolled? They were talking about it on Radio 4 yesterday for crying out loud and it was news to me. I feel very behind the curve...

Turn that shit off.

I liked both those links. Funny stuff.

But can we please stop with the "That is all" though? a) Because it never is all and b) the period informs us of the end of a post quite well enough.

WTF is a rickroll?

I thought it was hilarious.

I think Kermit's talents are much better spent doing NIN unplugged than lipsynching NWA. (as seen previously on MeFi)

I prefer The Muppets performing selections from Carmina Burana.
posted by redteam at 9:06 AM on April 3, 2008


The rick roll lip synching was a lot better than the NWA one.

Straight from the street... Sesame Street.

While we're at it, can we stop with all remixes, variations, spoofs, and tributes to F*ck the Police? They make me so tired!

The second link actually got a little smile, but that doesn't make up for how utterly lame the first link was. Zero sum game = weak post.

Let's go back to "As it was so written so shall it be done."

That would have been great if the mouth movements matched up with the lyrics more than once every ten seconds.

Oh, man. I hate muppets.

I always knew the Count von Count was a bad mother fucker from street.

One, one of my many bitches!

Two, two of my pistol-grip-pumps for my haters

Three, three of bodies which be droppin' when I come in and be a poppin'.

Wow. Those fellas really do have attitudes. Oh, yeah. They are incorrigible. I tell ya.

poorly done. unfunny. just like most of the web. shitty post. get off my metafilter.
posted by ElmerFishpaw at 11:19 AM on April 3, 2008


Your Metafilter, son?

Howabout you younguns get off my lawn? NOW.

I found they put some work into trying to match the lipsynching. Yay them. If I had liked the song at all, I think I would have found it more amusing.
posted by Samizdata at 11:32 AM on April 3, 2008


See, I laughed at 1:58 when the blue muppet gave up the lip syncing and began eating Bert's arm chair. That shit was funny.

Isn't it "Fuck tha Police" ?

30 replies and nobody referenced the brilliant NWP line from JASBSB?

For shame, Metafilter.

NWA is the funniest rap group ever.
(with a right,left, right, left you're toothless! Then you say goddamn they ruthless!)
ROFL!

And I love me some muppets!

The Big Bird section at about 1:34 is perfection.

Oh god...what the hell did I just watch?

Not very well done, and not even that funny of an idea. The guy just took a bunch of Sesame Street clips and strung them together with Fuck Tha Police playing over them. He didn't even edit them or make the words match up to the mouth movements. There are a thousand better-done "incongruous characters made to appear like they're singing or saying something outrageous" on YT.

with a right,left, right, left you're toothless! Then you say goddamn they ruthless!

And then there's GWAR's homage, The Salaminizer:

With an axe, sword, mace, pike you're limbless
And then I'll fuck your ass 'til it's rimless

The song that gave the world "suckadickalickalog".
posted by DecemberBoy at 7:56 PM on April 3, 2008


Also also (sorry, I'm always remembering stuff I wanted to write after I already posted): did you guys know Fuck Tha Police was written after Dre and Eazy were pulled over by the cops for shooting paintball guns at road signs? Yeah. And you thought it was a visceral call to war by an oppressed minority against a crooked police force. Well, it still is, but when you know the story it kind of diminishes the impact.

Big Bird is taking black asses to jail!

This required a lot less editing finesse, but it's more seamless:

Barney hits 'em up.

Actually, the Muppet version of Gangsta's Paradise is very well synched.

And while you're there, don't miss Gangsta's Paradise verarsche.
