Twitter is known for giving us the tools to make things go viral. One user came up with a game that not only gained traction, it even got the attention of celebrities who might be affected by!
@BeerBottleBlond took it upon herself to ask fellow users to play a game. The rules were simple, users had to choose a film, keep one actor, and assume other characters would be replaced with Muppets.
There were some innovative casting choices for some film classics. Let’s take a look at some standout proposals!
9. Die Hard
It’d be interesting to see a muppet play the part of Bruce Willis’ John McClaine, right? This Twitter user seems to think so!
Die Hard. Alan Rickman

8. The Matrix
One responder came up with a good reason why Keanu Reeves should be replaced in The Matrix.
"The Matrix", keep Hugo Weaving.
I know Keanu Reeves is amazing and seems like the obvious choice to keep, but the scene where Agent Smith rants about how much he hates humans makes me think how great an antagonist he would be opposite muppets.

7. Mission Impossible
One responder dissed Tom Cruise just a bit. Be he shared his perspective on why the Mission Impossible franchise needs a slight change.
Switching out Cruise for Gonzo would improve the Mission Impossible films immeasurably

Well, let’s hope Tim Curry doesn’t mind this.

5. Grosse Point Blank
Alas, this Twitter game got a response from John Cusack, who actually said he’d like to play a muppet.
I’d like to play a muppet actually –

4. New Jack City
Even accomplished musician Questlove got in on the action!
New Jack City
Keep Chris Rock as Pookie.
Surrounding him w Muppets seems pretty natural as a crack addict no?

3. Rocky IV
This is a creative proposal for a new type of Rocky IV.
Rocky 4 ….with a twist
Keep Dolph Lundgren. Drago vs Swedish Chef would be epic pic.twitter.com/AZ3prI8tR6

2. The Force Awakens
Recent films were no match for the challenge!
The Force Awakens
Keep Adam Driver
Kylo Ren's temper tantrums will be even better when they come as a response to Muppet antics

1. Groundhog Day
It would be pretty cool to watch Bill Murray react to Muppets in some of the Groundhog Day scenes.
Groundhog Day, keep Bill Murray.

Well, @BeerBottleBlond began an adorable conversation just for fun. Not only did she accomplish her goal, but some famous people gave valid input.
Is there a movie you’d suggest for this game? Who would play the Muppet or get to stay? We can’t wait to sift through your answers in the comments!
