The Muppets “Sing” Danny Boy

Ask a Muppet

Technically I already did the obligatory St. Patrick’s Day post earlier, and I didn’t want to go overboard, but I couldn’t pass this one up once I watched it. Danny Boy is actually a ballad written by Frederic Weatherly which has been set to the Irish tune of Londonderry Air for years. Watch the Swedish Chef, Animal, and Beaker attempt to sing it. Yes, I said attempt. You’ll see why.
