Okay, now that we’re on the same page with one of the most endearing and fun entertainment acts of all time, we can tell you about how they are pairing with your favorite YouTubers (or possibly your not so favorite YouTubers — that’s your call) to make merriment on the YouTubes.
Rolling videos with creators out April through June, the Muppets will be doing music, comedy, skits and more with the likes of creators such as Lindsey Stirling, Crash Course, VSauce3, Mike Tompkins, Barely Political and Mental Floss.
“With YouTube and the Muppets – anything goes and you never know what’s going to happen next,” said Kermit the Frog. “It’s a perfect match! We’re excited to work with all their amazing talent and we’re eager to prove that you do not have to be a cat to make great videos. Pigs, frogs and bears can make them too!”
According to the release: “The first video from VSauce3 (with over 2.3 million subscribers & 192 million views on YouTube) stars Gonzo and Rizzo, along with VSauce’s Jake Roper and Matthew Santoro, in a detective-themed story that asks, “What If Quicksilver Ran Past You.” Launched in early April, the video has already generated over one million views.”
So there you have it: YouTubers and Muppets, together at last! And it’s a hit!
