Friday fanfare: “Bohemian Rhapsody” by the Muppets

First discovered this Muppet version of one of Queen’s greatest hits on this day eight years ago, and it remains one of the best things ever. Just perfection in every way, all the way down to the guitar Janice is using being a left-handed version of the guitar Brian May plays. (All the Muppets are left-handed, one of my favorite quirks that Jim Henson introduced early on.)

What I love about this video is that it starts out fun with Gonzo and the chickens, and you think that’s it, but with each segment it gets better and better and adds more Muppets and gets funnier and funnier. (I’m also amused that all the lyrics that are in any way not good for children are edited. Yay Disney….)
