It's time to play the music, It's time to light the lights, It's time to meet the Muppets, On the Muppet Show tonight!
Starring (and conceived by) Jason Segel (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and costarring fellow comics Amy Adams and Zach Galifianakis, Disney's upcoming The Muppets Movie is in postproduction but whetting fans' appetites with a mock trailer for Green With Envy, the film's movie-within-a-move, which is trending on YouTube ahead of the real movie's scheduled Thanksgiving (November 23rd) release date.

Below, more videos climbing YouTube's most-shared and most-watched charts, including a small camera store promo with Hollywood chutzpah.
"We at The Camera Store take photography a little too seriously. Here's proof," quips The Camera Store of Calgary, Alberta. A video short promoting the Canadian retailer, mock Hollywood war movie style (the video comes with a disclaimer that no cameras were hurt in the making of the clip), features cameras instead of guns and grenades. A clever, creative (and low-budget) marketing effort instead of the expected camera commercial.
Virgin scored with this clip, showing Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo's first "feather flight" test returning into the earth's atmosphere as smoothly as possible. The tail sections of SpaceShipTwo rotate upwards about 65 degrees, changing the aerodynamic shape, which makes it more stable, and safer for re-entry. This can make the aircraft so stable that the pilot can remove his hands from the controls and let it glide through the air naturally, based on its aerodynamic shape. A truly incredible feat, especially in today's world where it seems now that civilian space travel may not be too far away.

"It's Okay to be Takei," says Star Trek's beloved Mr. Sulu, aka actor George Takei, in response to a bill now pending in Tennessee that would prohibit teachers in that state from discussing homosexuality in the classroom.
In addition to communicating to the LGBT community that he’s there for them in a variation on the "It Gets Better" meme, he brings humor to the debate by suggesting that the word "gay" be replaced with “takei.” He also created a website, It's OK to be Takei to offer tshirts and other related merchandise with the tongue-in-cheek slogan.
