April Fools: The Not-So-Nice Muppet Mural


In case you stopped by ToughPigs yesterday, you in all probability noticed our massive announcement for the sequel to final 12 months’s unbelievable fan-made Muppet monstrosity The Nice Muppet Mural. And hopefully you picked out the truth that it was (intentionally) very, very unhealthy.

In fact, the entire thing was only a enjoyable gag for April Fools Day. And in true egotistical vogue, we determined to spoof ourselves! It’s okay, we deserved it.

What we created, we hope, is a “The place’s Waldo”-esque scavenger hunt of ridiculous gags, jokes and references. Among the many issues you can seek for are:

  • Extremely obscure characters
  • Paintings created by non-artists
  • Eight variations of the character “Chip”
  • Spoofs of Kermit and Piggy from the unique mural
  • Spoofs of full-bodied Muppets holding the “TOUGHPIGS” letters (who aren’t standing collectively, and the letters spell our identify improper)
  • And naturally, ridiculous characters doing ridiculous issues

Many due to everybody who contributed to this foolish piece of artwork, particularly Zach Kenny who created the background and positioned the entire characters. Additionally to Jarrod Fairclough who edited collectively the spoof of The Making of the Nice Muppet Mural documentary.

And naturally, apologies to the handfuls of artists who we didn’t attain out to to be part of this one. As you may think about, it was vital to us that we hold the variety of contributors small, as to maintain the joke secret. However don’t fear, you in all probability dodged a bullet with this one.

Keep tuned as we reveal the entire particular person paintings right here on ToughPigs later this week. However for now, try the mural and the documentary under, together with our unique announcement in full! Joyful April 2nd, Muppet followers!

Only a few months in the past, we at ToughPigs teamed up with over 70 of our favourite artists to carry to you The Nice Muppet Mural. It was so nice, it broke the dang web. A whole bunch of characters in dozens of various kinds, and all created by the followers for no different cause than as a result of we love the Muppets and the creations of Jim Henson.

Heck, we love that factor a lot, let’s have a look at it once more:

Gorgeous, isn’t it?

The Nice Muppet Mural was, as you may think about, an enormous hit. And as we’ve realized from The Muppet Film or Pirates of the Caribbean, when you might have a success, you make a sequel. It’s the legislation of nature!

So a number of weeks in the past, we set issues in movement to create one more Nice Muppet Mural. A larger one, maybe? Sure, it's unarguably a extra huge feat, as we’ve illustrated one other military of Muppets simply on your enjoyment.

Now with out additional ado, we at ToughPigs are extraordinarily proud to current The Nice Muppet Mural II! We encourage you to click on the picture under so you may see it in all its glory.

And that’s not all! We had such a superb(?) time placing this mural collectively, we needed to doc the trouble. ToughPigs’ personal Jarrod Fairclough spent the final year-and-a-half painstakingly filming and enhancing a documentary about The Making of The Nice Muppet Mural II. We're regretfully proud to share chapter one (of 27) with you now:

Okay, yeah, you in all probability have a number of questions. There are a number of tiny particulars we might have neglected in making a second mural so shortly. The truth that all the favored characters had been used within the first mural, the truth that most of our “artists” have minimal inventive expertise, all these Chips…

Look, no one stated it might be excellent. However don’t fear, we’ll be delivering the complete clarification in a day or so, so keep tuned…
