#LOVEMUPPETS

Jarrod Fairclough – If there’s one thing I know more about than Muppets, it’s the world of high end fashion.  There’s, um…  Vogue?  That’s a thing, right? The Muppets have teamed up with the photographer known as Rankin to do a fashion shoot, and rather than just make a quick little promotional video, they’ve made a…
