Ben Folds Five know what they’re doing. Excitement was already high for the band’s first album in 13 years, The Sound of the Life of the Mind, which comes out tomorrow, but now it’s been amplified because they wisely made a music video for the song “Do It Anyway” featuring something everyone loves: SINGING MUPPETS. (Remember “Keep Fishin'”?)
Specifically, singing Fraggles, who crash BFF’s recording session before performing their theme song. Also in the video: non-Muppets Chris Hardwick, Rob Corddry, and Anna Kendrick, who would look adorable as a Fraggle. BFF is working the nostalgia angle hard, but at least it’s warranted.
