Sad Hermit sings 'Hurt'

This has got to be one of the saddest, yet funniest things I've seen in a while. Consider the pedigree of the song: written by Trent Reznor, originally performed by Reznor and NIN, covered by Johnny Cash in his Rick Rubin-produced American sessions. Now Kermit the Frog goes at it, and I have to say, he gives Cash a run for his money in the 'look at how fucked up I've gotten' department. I guess the death of Jim Henson hit ol' Kermie a bit hard. Giving Rolf a blowjob is a bit too much, but if you look closely, you can see that at around 2:30, he's doing rails off the cover of The God Delusion, by Richard Dawkins. Beautiful!
