The Muppets Sing Queen + David Bowie’s ‘Under Pressure’ in Google Commercial

Muppets Google Commercial
YouTube

The Muppets are the latest celebrities — they are A-listers in the plush world, mind you –  to appear in a Google TV ad. In their spot, Kermit & Co. hawk Google+ to the strains of ‘Under Pressure’ by Queen and David Bowie.

Google + is a service that aims to make sharing on the web more like sharing in real life, courtesy of functions like the Muppet-promoted “hangout.” For their commercial, the gang get together in a Google+ Hangout to rock out and blow off steam. Just like real life, right?

Animal starts the party off, making sure his hair looks alright and that his mic is on. The wide-eyed Beeker, the show-stealing Kermit, the fashionable Miss Piggy, the ornery and disagreeable Waldorf and Statler, along with Rolf and Gonzo all get into it while they “sing” along to ‘Under Pressure.’

The way they handle the vocal should make the late, great Freddie Mercury smile down from the heavens. The Muppets have enjoyed a long association with classic rock as you can see from our list of the Top 5 Muppet Show Cover Songs, and it doesn’t seem as though they’re stopping anytime soon!
