Things We Saw Today: The Muppets Take On “Mr. Blue Sky”
The Muppets love to bring to life iconic songs to make fans happy and this time, they performed the classic rock hit “Mr. Blue Sky” by the Electric Light Orchestra! The video is part of YouTube’s “Dear Earth” special, which features celebrity performances and informative, consciousness-raising content from climate change activists.
The house band, which features Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, still has their iconic style and I will be thinking about Animal saying “So high” for the rest of my life. Actually, anything that Animal chooses to do I think about frequently but this was extra funny to me.
Knowing that the Muppets are here to help combat climate change and want to educate us all feels right and good because the Muppets always want us to do the right thing together. The “Dear Earth” special seems like a wonderfully fun event and anything that includes the Muppets and the house band Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem is worth our time!
