Watch Miss Piggy and Kermit Parody Adele’s “Hello,” Prove That the Song Can Make Anything Poignant

Back in August, the Muppets went from loveably ridiculous to uncomfortably real when Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog, the two halves of one of the most longstanding celebrity couples of all time, “announced” they were “on a break.” But last night the rift reached a whole new level of melodramatic, when pig and frog reenacted the music video for Adele’s “Hello” during the American Music Awards.

The parody shows Miss Piggy wrapped in furs doing Adele things like walking through an empty dressing room, calling Kermit on an anachronistic telephone (in this case, a landline), and being buffeted by wind machines. But she also does Piggy things like hurl random objects at Kermit’s throat (a coffee pot, a keyboard) and squish her former frog’s face into unrecognizability. Chalk one up for Piggy, who’s never afraid to act on her feelings.
