Does it seem a little early to be promoting a movie that doesn’t come out for another three and a half months? If we were talking about anything else, I would say yes; since, however, we’re talking about Muppets Most Wanted right now… I will say only this: You can NEVER have too much Muppety goodness.
Especially not when it involves the Swedish Chef going up against Gordon Ramsay in a Top Chef-style competition. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Food Truck Fight! In the great battle between man and Muppet, who will come out on top? With Waldorf and Statler as your judges, it’s anybody’s guess (because let’s face it: No one wins when Waldorf and Statler are in town).
Seriously. I could watch this all. Flippin’. Day. Beaker proves to be a surprisingly adept kitchen assistant for the Swedish Chef, while Gordon’s experience with Sweetums… goes a little less smoothly.
On a side note, I just recently realized that the Swedish Chef’s hands, unlike most Muppet hands, are ACTUAL HUMAN HANDS. I’m not sure why this freaks me out so much, but it does.
Watch it here:
Muppets Most Wanted hits cinemas on March 21; it stars Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, and Tina Fey, along with the Muppets’ trademark celebrity cameos from stars like Tom Hiddleston, Celeine Dione, and Christoph Waltz.
