  • The Swedish Chef is married!?

  • Funny & informative! I love the disclosure at the end that no shrimp were harmed in the making of the video 🙂 The chicken didn’t seem too pleased, though …

    • Glad you enjoyed it. Wocka wocka!

  • Ok the whole chicken and the egg thing was slightly disturbing, but this is very funny nonetheless.

  • Awesome video. I love the Muppets!

    I would really love to see the Muppets involved with videos/promotions for things at the Disneyland Resort in California. 🙂

    • I love the Muppets too!

  • The start of your blog post made me laugh out loud here at work Rachel… Good job, very amusing.
