Homeless (?) Man and Two Kermits Sing Under Pressure (Update: He Isn’t Homeless.)

We’re not entirely sure what to think about this video.  For one thing, it looks really well produced, so it might be staged.  But if so, it’s been staged for a good cause.  And that doesn’t mean that the guy isn’t actually homeless.  But it doesn’t mean that he is. Do you see our problem?

The only thing we can conclude is that the guy is a damn good puppeteer.  Just wait for the moment in the video when you realize that you haven’t looked away from the Kermit faces to his in like forever.

Update: The man in the video has clarified that he is not actually homeless. (h/t Urlesque)

As I said this is a performance. I don’t want there to be any doubts about my situation. I am a performer. I have a roof over my head and I have yet to start my own family. But this video isn’t about me. This is for the men, women and children on our streets who don’t have bright green puppets on their hands. The people who aren’t always as easy to see. This is for you.
