Brought to you by the letter F and the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4

[Inspired by Dark Orpheus's post.]

Jude and I have long been fans of Feist and loved her performance at the Blind Pig when she was in Ann Arbor in 2006. When her video for "1-2-3-4" first came out, we were so taken by it that Jude had blogged about it here. It continues to be one of our favorite music videos, if for nothing else, the choreography, her exuberance and the fact that it was probably all done in one take. Now that's masterful...

Anyways, Feist has now joined the legion of some of my favorite artists who have appeared on Sesame Street. Her appearance is scheduled to premier in August but thanks to the wonders of the Internet, the clip got leaked which is how I'm able to share with you this delightful wonder of her counting with monsters, penguins and chickens! I'm not sure how to convey the sheer awesomeness that is the video except to say that I've played it several times since this morning and my day is all the brighter for it! See if you can pick out the different points at which they've recreated elements from the music video... :)

I've played it over and over and over on my laptop last night.

I need this video on my Nano, to be watched over and over and over on the way to work. :)

It's great PR to be seen with a Muppet. People always look better when they are surrounded by Muppets.
