NEW MUPPET VID! Sam the Eagle Karaokes “American Woman”

Hot off the Muppet presses!

Yes, I’m aware that I verbified “karaoke.” Also, I’m aware that “verbified” is not a word.

Ya git ta make up words in ‘MERICA!!!

Well done again, Soapbox Films!

    Was this American Bird or the Love Child of Grover and Fred Fredburger?

    Ha! “CANADIAN!?” Priceless.

    LOL! That was great! Chris, I know you love to make up words. You’ve come up with some great ones!! Karaoke as a verb? Absolutely!! I sometimes use your made-up words. Loved the word “guestery” you used a few days ago. Anyway, thanks for sharing the video!

    The voice was a good one for Sam. The character spans decades, even the same person doing the voice would have different timbre to Sam’s voice.

    This is quite awesome! Sam’s uber-love of all things US, funny. I just know that some Americans (let’s call them Palin-Americans and leave it at that) won’t catch the subtle humor.

    Other things that aren’t American in the video: apple pie, Statue of Liberty (well, it was a gift from France, but I guess the US owns it, since it was gifted and all), and karaoke. I marvel when aforementioned Palin-Americans blast this song. Do they not hear the lyrics?

    I totally agree with mRuss. I think the newer muppeteers are doing a great job.

  6. mRuss says:

    Sam the Eagle is currently being voiced by Sam Jacobson, who is also now doing the voice of Fozzie Bear, since Frank Oz is a bit busy these days. He’s also doing the voice of Animal, but I didn’t hear you schmucks complaining about that during the Bohemian Rhapsody video.

    Muppeteers come and go, and the voices get subtle changes, but the characters are still the same, folks. I -like- Jacobson’s characterization of Sam. Y’all can go stick your heads back up your butts.

    I love that they’re doing these, but the voices of the Muppets these days are just plain off.
