Watch The Muppets Music Video For Muppet Or Man, Best Song Of 2011?

“I reflect on my reflection, and I ask myself the question, what’s the right direction… to go? I don’t know.” Those are the lyrics to the year’s best musical number, “Man or Muppet” from one of the year’s best reviewed movies, The Muppets. If the song has any competition at all it’s probably from “Life’s a Happy Song”, also from The Muppets or "Pictures in My Head", again also from The Muppets. What I’m getting at here is that The Muppets is really good. Maybe best movie of the year good, but at the least best musical of the year good. If you’ve seen it, you know. If you haven’t, then allow me one last shot at convincing you.

Below you’ll find the music video version of “Man or Muppet”. Basically, Disney has taken the artful, moving musical sequence from the film and inserted a bunch of clips from the movie along with it. The clips don’t actually help anything, actually they just sort of get in the way, but the brilliance of the song and the musical number in general shine through. Watch it and if you’ve already seen it, sing along.

I’m a very manly Muppet…. I’m a Muppety maaaan! That’s, what I am.
