Steve Martin Takes On Kermit The Frog In ‘Dueling Banjos’

dueling-banjos

I always felt like Kermit the Frog and Steve Martin were cut from the same cloth (felt?) and this video of the duo recreating the famous "Dueling Banjos" scene from "Deliverance" is a perfect example of that.

This is completely wonderful, until the last few seconds when Kermit unleashes that snotty attitude. Kermit is never bratty, never nasty, never mean. The Kermit I know would love the competition and he would congratulate and celebrate a successful match with his fellow banjo-plucking pal. He wouldn't snidely take a shot at Steve. Never.

Shame on you, fake Kermit. Shame on you.

It’s been 20 years since the corporations took over the world’s governments. Their thirst for power and profits led to the corporate wars, a fierce global battle that laid waste to society as we know it. Born from the ash, the Council of Nine rose as a new law and order for this dark age. To avenge the corporations’ reckless destruction, the Council issues death warrants for all white collar criminals. Their hunter’s – the BOUNTY KILLER. From amateur savage to graceful assassin, the BOUNTY KILLER’S now compete for body count, fame and a fat stack of cash. They’re ending the plague of corporate greed by exterminating the self serving CEO and providing the survivors of the apocalypse with retribution. These are the new heroes. This is the age of the BOUNTY KILLER.
