Watch: 'The Muppets' Composer Bret McKenzie Singing with Kermit
Over the weekend Jason Segel had some fun with his fuzzy co-stars from The Muppets on "Saturday Night Live," but now it's composer Bret McKenzie, cult star of Lord of the Rings and the forthcoming adaptation of The Hobbit, and one-half of "Flight of the Conchords" to sing along with one of our favorite childhood friends. The New York Times has posted an adorable, sweet and wholly charming video of the New Zealand native singing the lovely tune Life's a Happy Song along with Kermit the Frog. If the countless trailer parodies or great marketing materials haven't warmed your heart, this should do the trick. Watch below!
Here's Bret McKenzie singing Life's a Happy Song with Kermit the Frog from The Muppets:
James Bobin ("Flight of the Conchords") is at the helm of this new Muppets movie, which follows Walter and Gary (Segel), two die-hard Muppet fans and roommates who must save Muppet Theater by reuniting Kermit, Piggy, and the entire troupe to stage an "old-fashioned extravaganza." The cast is full of all kinds of celebrity cameos and other great random appearances, including Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones, Zach Galifianakis, Ricky Gervais, Alan Arkin and Billy Crystal. We've been waiting for this! Disney will be bringing The Muppets to theaters starting November 23rd this Thanksgiving. It's almost here, go see it!

Look, I love the classic Muppets, but honestly I'll be glad when the film is out and done so I don't have to read any more articles about this new movie 😐
