Anyway, I would love to see FOTC do a song for Sesame Street, kind of like how REM, Andrea Bocelli, and lots of other artists have done songs. Since Bret has said that the FOTC TV characters were inspired by Bert and Ernie, I bet if they were asked to do Sesame Street, they would.
I loved it when REM was on Sesame Street. I also loved it when Jack Black was on Yo Gabba Gabba. Maybe FOTC should go on THAT show. I'm giggling a little just thinking about it.
Too bad the Muppet Show isn't still around, that would've been perfect.

I would never want to see the guys anywhere near SNL, not in its current form, anyway. It's the complete opposite of what they're about. It sounds like a bad movie pitch - "two humble, self-made foreign musicians try to find success in the tedium of bland, created-by-committee mainstream American television."
See, I thought about this, but I assumed FOTC would have some creative input if they were on the show. I imagine Justin Timberlake helps write the songs he does when he's on, but maybe not I guess. I actually think SNL has been kind of funny lately. I don't know their names but I think the guy with the big nose and the guy with the black hair are pretty funny together. So I think it could work. It would certainly be a juxtaposition of comic styles, but FOTC have been known to get kind of over the top themselves, they are not always the masters of understatement and dryness that they are known for being (just take a look at my sig. Or not, Oaky, if it bothers you.
