Being the trendy ragtag group of characters that they are, the Muppets never fail to latch on to the hottest thing out - and in this case, that's "The Hunger Games."
Similar to their spoof on "The Hangover Part II" - with a trailer that proclaimed, "The Fuzzy Pack is Backy Back" - the parody video for the upcoming DVD release of "The Muppets" riffs on this month's adaptation of Suzanne Collins' novel.
In the clip "from the people...who've probably read some epic novels" are quick scenes from "The Muppets" movie, cleverly paced to an ominous voiceover who proclaims that "it was decreed for a tribute to be offered to train in the art of survival."
Cut to Miss Piggy going to town on a plate of doughnuts, followed by Fozzie Bear and his fart shoes.
Feeling "the hunger" for the DVD release yet? It'll arrive on March 20 - three days before "The Hunger Games" bows in theaters.
And for "Games" fans, there's also a don't-miss new clip of Katniss meeting Cinna.
