Double Feature: Weird Al and a Young Jim Henson [Video]

i'll just leave this here

Both of these videos are very short — less than a minute each — but very fantastic. Up top is a sneak peak at “Weird” Al Yankovic’s upcoming Lady Gaga spoof, “Perform This Way.” You may recall that initially, Al was disallowed by Gaga’s people to go forward with this video. And then Gaga said, “What? No, do it!” Well, it’s definitely happening, and Spinner has ann exclusive look at a short snippet.

And after the jump, Jim Henson, circa 1961, working in his animation studio.

This has no sound, but how do you turn down an opportunity to see Jim Henson at work, very early in his career, in his Bethesda, Maryland studio? You don’t, and that’s why we are posting this:
