Marionette? I Think Marionotte

Sorry, baby. You’re a beautiful and passionate lady mouse, and I’d like nothing more than to ride off into the sunset with you on my back. But it could never work between us. This dog needs to be free. I’m looking for a no-strings relationship.

Suggested by Arne, who actually sent the video below, which is also cool even though it features both vertical video and a creepy videobomber at 1:50.

    The puppeteer is very skillful. However, and I believe this is a result of having been immersed for more than a year in The Horror That Is The News, I was actually a bit upset that a mouse puppet was forced, forced I tell you, to dance suggestively. I wish I could lie down, take a nap, and wake up and it’s 2015.

    It was funny the woman did the same dance steps as the puppet :).
    And doggeh is all, “stop touching my nose dude”.

    I’m afraid I was one of the down votes. I often like puppets, including marionettes, but I think that one is creepy. I’m glad that others have enjoyed it, though. Something for everyone.

      The puppeteer is a little TOO good. It’s strayed a bit into the “uncanny valley.”

    I think the marionette is adorable! As for the “creepy videobomber,” that just goes to show that NO ONE can resist dancing to Despacito!

        I like that the chicken has pulled up the lyrics on its computer 😀

    I was impressed by the puppeteer’s skill, but I really wish some of those popular dance moves would go away!

    • Murray C December 5, 2017 / 5:47 pm

      I’m with you, Laura – I was impressed with how much she got out of a very basic marionette, but it did get a bit much. I also thought the puppet itself wasn’t very well detailed, but that’s just me and my aesthetics.

    I am officially a worse dancer than an actual inanimate object. 😳

      You aren’t alone.

    Hmmm, I dunno… Needs more Glockenspiel!

    That photobomber, with the abdominal growth, looks like a guy who knows how to have a good time and dance the day away. Even if no one else can hear the music.
