Muppets cover "Queen" song - should I be upset?

Several weeks I wrote about how upset I was that Where the Wild Things was made into a movie. There was quite the debate from readers.

Today, I came across the Muppets "cover" of Bohemian Rhapsody - and I don't have the same feelings of indignation. Should I?

You got to love Animal :)

Nope! Nope, nothing to be upset about at all. There's something about the Muppets doing a cover that is genuinely amusing. When you consider that Seseme Street had lots of big-name stars as guests on the show (Johnny Cash, Lena Horne, B-52's, etc), it's hard for me to imagine that if Freddie Mercury were around that he'd get all upset over a cover of his group's song. This is somehow much, much less annoying than watching a re-do of a beloved storybook! But we won't go there :-)

The difference, I think, is parody. Even though I think you were dead wrong about WTWTA, no one mistakes this for camping on someone else's creativity.

Nothing at all to be upset about. This rocks. Big fan of Queen. Big fan of The Muppets. The two getting together (even though Freddie has passed on) is long overdue.
