Read it and Weep

Jim Henson didn't just make the cute Muppets on Sesame Street and The Muppet Show. He also applied the same foam techniques to stranger projects like the incomprehensible but delightful Labyrinth starring David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly, and The Bulge In David Bowie's Pants.

Imagine a world where goblins are real. And imagine those goblins are ruled by a non-goblin, the yoga pants wearing David Bowie. And further imagine those goblins stole your baby brother because you said the magic words on accident and you alone can save him but there's this big fucking maze. Makes sense, right? That's the predicament Jennifer Connelly finds herself in, and she only has 13 hours to do it using the power of friendship.

Look, it doesn't make any sense. But it doesn't have to. The Muppets are awesome. David Bowie is awesome. The CG isn't even a little awesome but that in and of itself is fun. Overall, great fun to watch and thanks to Big H for sponsoring it.
