I'm not sure why, but I'm a sucker for anything that takes The Muppets or Sesame Street characters and moves them into unusual situations. This explains my fascination with the Bert is Evil website and why I think this is the greatest YouTube video in the history of the world.

The clip of Bert and Ernie lip-syncing along to MOP's Ante Up now has some competition for that title with the release of Black 20's trailer for Jim Henson's Resident Evil 5. That's right, Chris Redfield and Wesker turn up in Muppet form in this exciting zombie clip. Yes, I know, this is an old video -- but if you haven't seen it before, it's new to you. Plus, even if you have, it's worth seeing again. It's that cool.

The mixture of Muppets and real zombie actors is awesome -- although the CGI blood splatters could use some work. The video follows Chris Redfield as he kills the undead, fights with Wesker, realizes he doesn't have teeth, and then sets off for Africa.

Check it out for yourself after the break. Would you watch a full length Muppet zombie movie? I'd pay to see one on opening day, truthfully.
