The Muppets continue their social media onslaught with Beaker's Ballad

The Muppets are rapidly becoming socially media savvy... the result is they are winning over a whole new generation of fans through YouTube and one burnt muppet.

Kermie and Co started a viral storm with the Muppet rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody just before Christmas.

Then they followed that up with an iPhone app and more videos, most of which have become viral sensations.

Now the Muppets, specifically Beaker and the grumpy old men Statler and Waldorf, are taking on spiteful YouTube commenters and Diggers with their latest clip, “Beaker’s Ballad,” which is well on its way to becoming a top YouTube video.

The clip pays homage to Internet speak, harsh and angry YouTube commenters and Digg bait, all while Beaker sings out his ballad.
