Life's like a movie, write your own ending...

In honor and commemoration of the 20th anniversary of Jim Henson's death, here's a list of the greatest soundtracks that have ever been mashed up with scenes from The Muppets properties; from Kermit the Frog explaining, in gory detail, what it's like to botch spinal surgery to Miss Piggy singing Fuck The Pain Away.

Miss Piggy's rendition of Peaches "Fuck The Pain Away" is both sacrilegious AND a great piece of editing. The masher does an exceptional job of capturing the mood of the song and matching it to a similarly shot Electric Mayhem video. Miss Piggy's syncing may not be perfect, but the selection of her reaction shots are dead on. 

But the best part is the fact that, while this song would NEVER have made it onto the Muppet show, the sentiment sure seems right on the money. If any Muppet character would have requested that someone suck on their teets, it probably would have been Miss Piggy (although in all fairness, it's not like there are a lot of other female muppets to begin with.)
