That atrocious final chapter aside, people love them some Jack Sparrow. (Especially Michael Bolton!) They love the gravely voice, the spacey demeanor, the marionette-like posture. And although each of these elements was birthed by Johnny Depp, in the role that turned him from cult favorite to omnipresent movie star, it seems as though a few people are willing to see them carried out by another Hollywood icon. An equally beloved, perhaps more respected, thespian — Kermit the Frog. With The Muppets… Again! brewing for 2014, some fans of Jim Henson’s felt family were inspired to put together a crossover video between the 1996 picture Muppet treasure Island, and Depp’s ongoing franchise Pirates of the Caribbean.
In the video, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, and Tim Curry all inhabit (in a rather impressive dub job) the Pirates characters, channeling fandom of both entertaining realms. Check out the parody trailer below.
