Ben Folds Five team with Fraggles on 'Do It Anyway' video
Nerdist premiered the video for "Do It Anyway," which in addition to featuring a heaping helping of Fraggles, also has cameos by Anna Kendrick, Rob Corddry and Chris Hardwick.
Hardwick shares this little tidbit on how this awesome mashup came to be: "In a meeting with Lisa [Henson, CEO, The Jim Henson Company], she casually said, 'Next year is the 30th anniversary of 'Fraggle Rock.' Would you want to do anything with the Fraggles?' 'WHAT THE [expletive]?? That's an OPTION?!' I loudly replied. I think I scared her a little. I knew Ben had a new album releasing in September so I threw his name out. Lisa said 'that would be amazing' without hesitation. It was beautifully serendipitous. It seemed like a no-brainer to me, but I still cautiously pitched it to Ben, not really knowing his relationship with the show. I think I just spit words out, 'YOU. VIDEO. FRAGGLES. ME PAY FOR!'"
