Two major phenomena of the 80s come together in this video: the classic-rock opera “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen and the characters created by Jim Henson, the muppets. You can find all these characters that shaped a generation: Miss Piggy, Kermit The Frog, Gonzo, Animal and many more, some of them who had not appeared on television for many years.
This video will become a real competition for the Christmas No. 1, defeating, for the moment, “X Factor”, the British version of American Idol that had been number one for several consecutive years.
The video, became a true phenomenon, has appeared on several news channels worldwide and is emerging as Christmas Number 1 Contender in the list published by The Sun.
This single will be distributed as video and audio by the EMI, to be discharged through all Digital Service Providers.
Muppets Studio general manager Lylle Breier said the video was created to revive the franchise, but the numbers are far beyond what they imagine. Breier said this video won’t be the last one , and a version of “Carol of the Bells” will be presented for Christmas. Given the success shown so far, we can wait a handful of other videos during 2010.
“It’s all part of a plan for new creative content with online, television, a new theatrical movie,” Breier said. “We’re bringing the Muppets back.”
And this Christmas The Muppets are back and they are big.
