  1. The Muppets Help Explain Why Quicksilver’s Speed Would Actually Destroy Everything in Its Path

    You didn't see that coming?

    Lots of superpowers seem cool in a science-vacuum, but when you start adding in the real-world laws of physics, they can become terrifying pretty quickly. Look at Quicksilver's speed for example: Unless he's running in a literal vacuum, he's going to leave a lot of destruction in his equally literal wake.

  5. These Game of Thrones Rabbit Figurines Make Us Hopping Mad

    They'll kill you with their nasty, pointy teeth.

    Hopping mad that we don't own them, that is.

    Things We Saw Today

    We get a lot of emails about Kickstarter campaigns around these parts, but this one—"KitRex: the 3D paper velociraptor that you build yourself!"—caught our eye. Fun tip: Having a campaign that involves dinosaurs and googly eyes never hurts. (Thanks to tipster Amy)

  7. Kermit and Fozzie Talk Existence and Ennui in 1979 Camera Test

    What's it even meeeaaaaan to be reeeaaaaaaal, maaaaaaan?

    Kermit the Frog and Fozzie Bear, voiced by Jim Henson and Frank Oz respectively, got into some deep stuff while talking for a camera test from The Muppet Movie. Is Fozzie a real bear? Fozzie also does a comedy set for cows, and Miss Piggy pressures Kermit into buying a house they can't afford.

  8. This Guy Puts Your Fozzie Bear Impression to Shame and Sings “Rainbow Connection” as Every Muppet

    In the next Muppet movie, they all need to be rescued from Brock Baker's throat.

    Brock Baker is a one man Muppet Chorus, which is no easy feat. I mean, sure some of the Muppets shared voice actors, but to get such a wide range of them perfectly can't be easy. So, let him serenade you with the classic "Rainbow Connection" as every Muppet and enjoy that little moment on each one when you register which Muppet he is.

  9. Kermit Sang “It’s Not Easy Being Green” on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon

    Excuse me, I think I have a four-leaf clover in my eye.

    It's March 18th, so it seems like we've all survived the chaos that was St. Patrick's Day weekend relatively unscathed. What happens when you can't take off all the green the next day, though? It probably means you put too much food coloring in your beer. Unless you're Kermit the frog, of course, in which case you get to sing a sad song about it.

  10. The Lipton Tea/Muppets Most Wanted Ad Is Great, Even If It’s for Lipton Tea

    I'd watch every commercial if they all starred the Muppets.

    The Muppets have had their differences with "the man" in the past, but they're taking a break to plug some products. The've completely taken over New York in a new Lipton Tea/Muppets Most Wanted tie-in ad, and it's pretty great. (Which has nothing to do with tea and entirely to do with the Muppets being great.)

  11. Watch “We’re Doing a Sequel,” The Opening Song From Muppets Most Wanted [VIDEO]

    it's time to play the music


    We're Doing a Sequel - Muppets Most Wanted Music Video on Disney Video It's intercut with some trailer stuff, like Disney doesn't know you're going to see Muppets Most Wanted anyway (you are, right?). And it's as splendidly self-aware as I expect all Muppet movies to be. I may be dating myself here, but who's the kid tossing the flowers at 00:50? He's in all the trailers, and I have no clue what cameo I'm missing. I feel old. Behind the cut you'll find another Muppets Most Wanted promo vid, this one of Rowlf and Rizzo going through the drive-through at an ice cream shop. It's exactly that. It's funnier than it has any right to be.

  12. Here’s The Opening Number From Muppets Most Wanted

    And you thought nothing heartwarming would happen today.

    Composer Brett McKenzie and the whole Henson family, thank you for helping make the long wait until Muppets Most Wanted comes out on the 21st a little more bearable. "We're Doing A Sequel" has all the self awareness, eye bugging, and old school Hollywood pizzazz we need to make it through one more Muppetless month.

  13. The Muppets Have Been Posting Selfies to Their Official Instagram

    it's time to play the music

    Look. There's no additional context you need here. You don't need to know that the Muppets are ramping up publicity for Muppets Most Wanted. All the info you need is that they've been posting selfies to Instagram. That's it. And that the Muppets are real, and that there's no one else involved in these images, of course.

    It Belongs in a Museum!

    Brooklyn's Bottleneck Gallery consistently puts on really great shows filled with pop-culture goodness. The latest, opening Friday, is titled "It Came From 1984." I never really kept track of the year movies came out but damn, 1984 was a gold mine!

  19. Our Favorite 2014 Super Bowl Ads Both Aired and Unaired [Video]

    Great Moments in Advertising

    Whether or not you care about the Super Bowl, you probably know that it marks the airing of some of the best commercials and that companies spend a lot of effort and money to make an impression. We've collected our favorite Super Bowl commercials as well as a couple commercials that won't be aired during the game but are clearly related to it.  From Tom Hiddleston in a Jaguar commercial to the Muppets being awesome, there's a lot to love here.  On a related note, if you're going to watch the Super Bowl and you see any gross and sexist ads, you can always tweet about them with the hashtag #notbuyingit to tell the advertisers you're not interested in the way they sell things. And hey, if you were only going to watch for the ads, accept this as your excuse to spend your day doing something else. Commercials start after the jump!

  20. Things We Saw Today: First Images From The Giver Are Sadly Bereft of Meryl Streep

    Things We Saw Today

    Remember how Meryl Streep is going to be in The Giver? So exciting. But this pic has Jeff Bridges, which is pretty dang cool by itself. Collider has the other picture, featuring main character Jonas (aged up from 12 to 16) and A Baby.
