Sad Kermit has come out of hiding. After Jim Henson’s death, Kermit has fallen into a deep, dark world. Here he is, singing Johnny Cash’s version of Hurt. You might want to cover little Billy’s eyes while you watch this, as it includes a hearty dose of both puppet drug abuse and puppet sex acts.
The creators of Sad Kermit have certainly succeeded in architecting a viral sensation. It’ll be interesting to see how people respond to seeing one of their favorite childhood characters succumb to drug addiction and engage in shameless voyeuristic behavior.
