I was making a list of my favorite YouTube videos of the year, and found this one in a list of the top 20 viral videos of the year. Despite 20 million views, it hadn't crossed my path, and I'm glad I finally saw it. It's a genuine rarity, a battle royale on the African plain, and if you have the time, I thoroughly recommend watching it all the way through.
It's no secret that I'm a huge Muppets fan-- I grew up on Sesame Street, inherited a cheesy sense of humor from The Muppet Show and even named my dog Gonzo (after the endearing weirdo and the great Hunter S. Thompson). So I was both mortified and delighted to see SNL pay homage to Rowlf, The Swedish Chef, Janis, Zoot and Animal-- if that's what they were trying to do. It's not much of a skit beyond the sight of cast members in costumes, but for Muppetphiles like myself, it's worth a look.
