A couple years ago, an unofficial video for LCD Soundsystem‘s “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” had Kermit the Frog lip-synching frontman James Murphy’s words. It was brilliant, and somehow surprisingly well-suited to the vibe of the band.
Here, Kermit reprises his role as a Murphy surrogate in this new, also unofficial video for “Dance Yrself Clean” by filmmaker Javier Douglas. In Douglas’ clip, Kermit and the Muppets gang get together for a rooftop concert in Brighton, England, as well as an afterparty DJ’d by Animal. The production values aren’t the best, but it’s funny, adorable and perfectly matches the balance of melancholy and joy in the music.
