A Muppet Version Of The Wicker Man


(YouTube Link)

As you can tell by the soundtrack music in this parody trailer for A Muppet Wicker Man, it isn't referencing the excruciatingly bad version with Nic Cage from about five years back, but rather the much more enjoyable 1973 version that still gives me the creeps.

I'm still on the fence about this trailer, and why a room full of Muppet faced children creeps me out when I love the Muppets so much I'd name my son Gonzo just to have them perform at his first birthday party.

However the comic book that tells the whole story, and for which this trailer is a bit of creative advertising,  is amazingly well done and available to read for free online.

It's full of Muppet style humor, creepy moments and puppet heads photoshopped on to human bodies that enhance the eerie nature of this tale of witchcraft and human puppet sacrifice. And yes, I'm aware that it's been around since 2009, but does that really make it any less neat, or any more o-rama?
