Ok so I think we can all agree that puppets pretty much rule. Hands down. So I was thinking here at Universal Dork that I’d start doing a little research and find the BEST music videos featuring puppets-because really if you add a damn puppet to a music video it suddenly becomes the shit! Seriously even some songs that otherwise suck get ten times better when a mother fuckin’ puppet pops up in the video. So today I will start it off with a couple of my faves and one of which is an obvious choice for quite possibly best music video featuring puppets! It’s seriously gonna be hard to top the puppetry genious of Genesis’ “Land of Confusion”.
I have a feeling that it just may be the best puppet themed video of all time-but we’ll really just have to put it to the test as I will sporadically post them over the next two weeks to finally see who reigns supreme as the ultimate musical master of puppets! So stay tuned. First though check out the video I have a feeling no one can touch….
Pretty fucking genious huh??? If you remember these puppets were originally featured on a popular 80’s tv show called Spitting Image-apparently Phil Collins lost his shit when he saw the tv show the first time and called the creators of the it to ask them to make puppet versions of the whole band. Must be nice to be Phil huh??
Next check out this unique puppet video for the song “Package Thief” from one of my all time fav bands Superchunk!
If that’s not enough check out what Beavis & Butthead had to say out “Package Theif”….pretty amazing..
Stay tuned for more puppetry!!
