Sad Kermit…

I love this…

Sad Kermit. According to his website,

“Soon after the death of Jim Henson, Sad Kermit spiraled downward into a life full of addiction, romance and pain. The songs and videos on this web page shed light on Sad Kermit’s descent into his dark, hurting world.”

From wiki:

Sad Kermit is an unauthorized parody of Kermit the Frog, the popular Muppet. The video first appeared on YouTube in March 2007, showing a store-bought Kermit puppet performing a version of the Nine Inch Nails song “Hurt” in a style similar to Johnny Cash’s version.

“In contrast to the real Kermit character’s usual family friendly antics, the video shows the faux puppet engaging in drug abuse, smoking, alcoholism, masturbation, vomiting, performing oral sex on Rowlf the Dog, smashing a picture of Miss Piggy (with a breast exposed) and attempting suicide. The video was credited to ‘sadkermit’ at sadkermit.com. In addition to the video, audio parodies of “Creep” by Radiohead, “Twilight” and “Needle in the Hay” by Elliott Smith, “The Rainbow Connection” (referred to as “The Rainbow Disconnection”), “Something I Can Never Have” by Nine Inch Nails and “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen as covered by Jeff Buckley are also available, together with the audio only version of “Hurt”.”

Here’s a video:

This, of course, is a parody of the suicide scene of the Royal Tennenbaums…

Here’s that for comparison:

You can download a good number of songs from the site…My personal favorite of his songs has to be Something I Can Never Have.

Here’s the video that started it all:

Enjoy!
