“You’re Tearing Me Apart, Piggy!”

“You’re Tearing Me Apart, Piggy!”

This Thanksgiving weekend I got together with some of my husband’s old high school friends for our annual bad movie tradition. When we realized someone in the room hadn’t seen The Room and needed to, we had to remedy it. I’ve seen this abominable film classic half a dozen times now, but a fresh group of friends to help digest it makes it better every time. This time we somehow got on a track discussing how we would do a Muppets remake, and this is the result.

Thanks to AJ for the Kermit photoshop, and thanks to Shannon, Tommaso, Nicki, Preston, Wesley, and Kyle for the hilarious tangent.

Beaker as… Who the Heck Is This?

Apparently the actor who played Peter quit during filming and was randomly replaced mid-film by this dude. So we swap out Bunsen for Beaker. I don’t think anything he says needs to be understood.

And special thanks to AJ for this wonderful photoshop.

Because it just isn’t The Room without football being played in tuxedos.
