Big Tease For a Big Thing on Monday

So, on Sunday, Chris Hardwick tweeted the above picture and this text:

So…something AMAZING is happening @NerdistChannel tomorrow…Right @BenFolds @hensoncompany? #hints #tease

Hmm… hints… Ben Folds… a familiar character… what could it possibly mean? I could tell you, but I’d have to, er, well, I’m not saying anything further in order not to incriminate myself, and also to remain employed. But I will, on Monday. You will want to be here for that. And you should also subscribe to the Nerdist Channel to be sure.

  1. Chrissy says:

    I was super excited, until I realized that Fraggle Rock is almost 30 years old.
    Oh well, I’m still excited even though I’m old.

  2. Jake says:

    Its been Monday for 19 hours in my part of the world. Can’t ……..wait…..much……..longer.

  3. Vincent S says:

    omg, puppetry of the penis with Ben Folds?!?!?!! we all know Ben Folds is not shy down there.


    Didn’t grow up with Fraggle Rock and I’m not a fan of Ben Folds but the enthusiasm in the Nerdist Podcast seems to get my attention. Looking forward to it.

  4. JetpackBlues says:

    “Okay, so, back to Fraggle-ing… when you stick them in half way they’ll start to fight for air….”

  5. Mike P says:

    Fraggles? Fraggles?! FRAGGLES!

    Seriously, though, this sounds like a great idea… and maybe a few parents will be getting their kids in front of a computer tomorrow for this depending on it’s content.

  6. Amy says:

    Muppets+Ben Folds= actually looking forward to tomorrow.

  7. I really love how Nerdist Industries is actively trying to make Mondays a day of awesome instead of a day of dread!!! I cannot wait for more All Star Bowling but this will do nicely. 🙂

    Maybe I’m beginning to show my age but I actually like the tease and the waiting! It’s like a slow build up to something awesome.

    I guess I’ll have to dim the light and put on some Ben Folds Five to pass the time until the big reveal! (Go pre-order The Sound of The Life of The Mind! It is fantastic! )

    AWESOME! Can’t wait…..

  9. Three Toes of Fury says:

    This can only mean one thing….after years of conspiracy theories on the subject, the Nerdist team will finally verify the truth…that the characters of fraggle rock were, in actuality, an uber-violent syndicate of thugs, pimps, and hitmen. Unfortunately based on the ransom photo above it appears that Chris and crew are too late…the fraggles have kidnapped the amazing Ben Folds. Dont let the smile on Bens face fool you..thats just a slight case of the Stendhal Syndrome…he’s terrified and tortured round the clock..being forced to play nothing but the fraggle rock theme 23/7 on the piano (for one hour every day he gets to play ‘crocodile rock’ for the doozers). We need to organize a team of nerds, a-la-The-Expendables, to go to the evil land of fraggles and rescue poor Ben!! Go Team Nerdists!

    Peace n Wearing a necklace of fraggle ears

    PS Seriously Perry…OOOOOOO you suck for the teaser…..curiosity is killing this cat….i cant wait to see what it will be!?!?!
