I just want to know who made his tux. How can it self-destruct when it wasn't even tight? : :puzzled: :lol:

Looks like we've got a response from Jemaine about Bret's Oscar ;) :

Jemaine Clement is worried about his bandmate’s new found power. During a chat this week, Clement revealed he has no doubt that his award winning partner Bret McKenzie will pull the Oscar card on him during Conchords practice which commences this week in their native New Zealand. “He would, yes. He would,” answered Jemaine, ” He was already like that because he’s had music lessons and I haven’t, He already pulled that on me. with an Oscar he’ll be unstoppable.”

Oh, to be a fly on the wall when Bret strolls into the first rehearsal with that Oscar prominently sticking out of his guitar case! :rolls:

Jemaine seems ready for him, though. :lol: I'm sure there will be some antics. :snakeman:

“We’re doing some gigs soon,” Jemaine told IReviewToo, “we’re going on tour in New Zealand and Australia. We have a few things that we’ve been talking about doing, we’ve been throwing around some movie ideas and we’re going to write a few new songs and maybe we’ll play them at our next shows if we get them ready enough,” he revealed. “Gigging with Bret is really fun,” added Jemaine, “I enjoy gigs the most.”


When I first read this it was on my phone and I thought he'd said "giggling with Bret," and then that image was stuck in my head and I sat there giggling thinking about it. :lol:

Awww, nice to know that band practice will resume this week. :heart: NEW SONGS!!!

Bret: "Present"

Jemaine: "Present"

Bret set's the Oscar on the table: "Present" (Bret putting on an American accent) :wink: I almost feel sorry for Jemaine.

Oh, I think Jemaine has been practicing snappy comebacks since Feb 26! :lol:
I still wish they'd video the first meeting...and the rest of the rehearsals as well! :wink:

Oh man, poor Jason. I've had nightmares like that. I hope he's exaggerating. I'll bet they had a good laugh about it though. I read somewhere that Jason, Bret and a bunch of other funny guys were seen out together after the ceremony.

Heehee, I found a pic with a missing button. :lol:

News blurb here, including how he fixed himself up. (borrowed double-sided tape)

I couldn't resist...I bought one of these off of ebay. :)

I just saw an ad for the movie coming out on dvd, and it said that it had more outtakes than any other film EVER, plus a lot of behind the scenes stuff. :whitey:

The Muppets will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on March 20 outside the El Capitan Theatre. That's something to check out next time you visit L.A. :D

Well deserved. 8)

I can't wait to hear what's on The Muppets dvd extras! I'm holding out a (tiny) glimmer of hope for a glimpse of Bret in full music supervisor mode.

The Blu-ray with all the extras is out today. Did anyone get it?

Is it just the Blu-ray that has all the extras? :sosad:

Unfortunately it seems as though the Blu-ray has most of the goodies:
The most notable difference casual fans will notice between the four various releases of “The Muppets” is the inclusion of bonus features. Only the blooper reel makes its way on to the DVD release unfortunately. Everything else is included on both of the Blu-rays with the exception of “Inside Walter’s Trailer” (digital copy only).

There are 4 different versions of the DVD/Blu-ray release. All the info can be found in the above link.

So cool that the Muppets will have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 8)

A Muppet caricature of The Muppets music supervisor Bret McKenzie was made as a gift to McKenzie and was not used in any productions.
