Watch The Muppets Recreate 50 Shades of Grey in the Mashup You Didn’t Know You Wanted

Oct 07, 2016

When ABC rebooted the beloved children’s show The Muppets and transformed it into a primetime show for a mature audience, they probably didn’t intend for it to be R-rated. Instead, they left that to the internet.

A new mashup imagines what a Muppet version of 50 Shades of Grey would look like and it’s as racy as you would expect. In the clip, Miss Piggy and Kermit—two consenting adult Muppets who have been dating for a long, long time—step into the roles of ingenue and older suitor.

It’s all pretty believable except for one small thing: perhaps Miss Piggy would be better suited for the role of the uptight, controlling Christian Grey and innocent, wide-eyed Kermit would be a stand-in for Anastasia Steele. As a proudly bossy pig, Miss Piggy would have insisted on taking control. Maybe that will happen when someone mashes up the Muppets with 50 Shades Darker. At any rate, watch below.
