Before Jonathan Larson created Rent...he wrote a Muppets movie musical?
That's what content creator Matthew Gaydos supposes in his parody mashup combining scenes from the film The Muppets Take Manhattan with audio from the first tick, tick…BOOM! trailer.

Watch the video of Muppets Tick Manhattan above.
For an extra treat, check out the tweet below where Gaydos gives a side-by-side of the tick, tick…BOOM! trailer and his Muppets Tick Manhattan parody.
