The beloved frontman is set to appear on the season finale of The Muppets on Tuesday in an episode titled, “Because…Love.” White’s label, Third Man Records, posted this to their Facebook page: “Jack White has some very important business to tend to concerning his friend Kermit and matters of the heart. Tune into The Muppets ABC season finale next Tuesday, March 1st to see if his efforts pay off!”
White’s track record with friendships might be a bit dicey, but we bet he has some good advice for Kermit. Perhaps this appearance is just the latest step of White’s tour of reconciliation. Maybe the eccentric frontman can provide genuine, sage advice to help save one of the world’s sturdiest models of love and romance—it’s not easy being green, after all.
One of White’s bands, The Dead Weather, recently released a video for “Impossible Winner,” the second single from their 2015 LP, Dodge and Burn. This coming Tuesday, the world will watch and hope that White can be its impossible winner, reigniting the infeasible partnership of frog and pig. Perhaps this will even unseat Dave Grohl’s epic drum battle with Animal as the most important (recent) musical moment on The Muppets.
What do you think? Can Jack White save the day? Should Kermit and Miss Piggy explore other options, regardless? Let us know in the comments.
