When Kanye West & co. rap about nightmarish beings in "Monster," it's doubtful that they had the Muppets in mind. However, a fan video remixing West's posse cut has hit the Web, combining Jim Henson's fuzzy creatures and profanity-laced rhymes in the most awesome way possible.
The video, which was posted on YouTube earlier today (Jan. 4), has a ton of highlights: a dreadlocked Cookie Monster slaying Jay-Z's verse, Dr. Teeth asking, "The best living or dead, hands down, HUH?" and Cookie Monster aping Rick Ross while wearing gold chains are all hilarious images. But nothing in the video can top the mash-up of Nicki Minaj's show-stopping verse and Miss Piggy's leather-clad rant, which starts at 1:43. The bit works so well that we half-expect Lil Kim to issue a Miss Piggy diss track.
While Kanye West readies the official cut of his disturbing "Monster" video, the rapper apparently approves of this fan homage. He posted a link to the video on Perez Hilton from his Twitter account this afternoon.
