OMG Fraggles! As a lover of all things Muppets, Fraggle Rock was pretty much the highlight of my week as a kid. So obviously, I was super excited when I stumbled across this video. The media brainchild of former MTV personality Chris Hartwick, Nerdist, poured their talent and nerd cred into producing this exclusive video for Ben Folds Five’s new album. In case you were wondering, yes, you’re right. It has been forever (13 years) since Ben Folds released a new track, making them almost as much of a throwback as the Fraggles. But who cares? They “Do It Any Way.”
I bumped into this epic music mashup last week and decided to hold on to it for today. Why? Because I love it. There is something about the Shaft theme that some how makes the Imperial March more menacing in a “oh no you didn’t” sort of way.
The track was recorded live on a APC40 by Chris Evans-Roberts then layered with matching video in Adobe Premiere. If you find yourself as addicted to this funktastic mashup as I am, ‘don’t hold back’ and download the song for free here.
