Ever seen an indie-rock puppet argue over the merits of another puppet’s performance? Well, that just happened.

Feltworth, a furry four-piece from Canada (they’re connected with Sloan), has seen Tame Impala’s new clip for "‘Cause I’m a Man." And they can spot the similarity. In a clip posted Monday, the Feltworth critters assemble around a laptop to watch the Australian psychedelic rock outfit’s latest video, and they compare it with their own.

“What are we going to do?” muses one long-eared bandmate. “I don’t know,” his pink colleague responds. “The thing is, it looks pretty great.”
The question is put out there, but it's done with zero animosity. Quite what Jim Henson would've made of all this is anyone’s guess. Tame Impala has yet to respond. 

"'Cause I’m a Man" is lifted from the Perth act's forthcoming third album, Currents. Watch the new video below, and compare it with Feltworth.
