Kermit tried to tell us years ago that it's not easy being green. Back then he did it with a friendly little melody and some acoustic guitar. Now the message is getting a bit more aggressive, and he's bringing some famous friends along for the ride. LCD Soundsystem teamed up with the famous frog to create a new video for "New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down" from last year's Sound of Silver.
Kermit spends most of the video chilling on a rock in the bay with the New York skyline in the background, venturing in a few times to perch in the middle of Times Square, roundabout the spot you might usually see The Naked Cowboy. And he belts those passionate final notes out like only a frog could. Be warned, though -- the end of the video reveals a little something about Kermit that could be a bit shocking for some. Viewer discretion is advised.

And while we're advising that discretion, we'll tell you about another of Kermit's cries for help. Even Jim Henson couldn't have seen this one coming. Here Kermit enlisted the help of Nine Inch Nails, or at least their permission to put his own spin on "Hurt." This one definitely isn't for the faint of heart, and probably no decent person should view it or find it in any way humorous. But God knows that never stopped us. Enjoy.
