Watch the Muppets Crash a Kyle MacLachlan-Led Goldman Sachs Meeting

In his now-famous exit letter, one of the more amusing things that ex-Goldman Sachs employee Greg Smith revealed about the financial firm (among many not-so amusing things) was what they call their clients: muppets. That isn’t very fair to the actual Muppets, no? In this new video for Funny or Die, the felt-lined friends show up to a Goldman Sachs meeting to chew some beef. “We represent the Anti-Muppet Defamation League,” announces a suit-wearing Muppet, “and we’d like to lodge a formal complaint about Goldman Sachs’s use of the word ‘Muppet’ in an offensive and derogatory way.” They’re met with some resistance by actors Kyle MacLachlan and Neal McDonough, who make for very convincing executives. Watch it after the click, via Flavorwire (slightly NSFW for language and drug use).

"If Americans didn’t want us to get rich," MacLachlan sneers in his WASP-y way, "then why would they give us all their money?" Some surprisingly biting economic analysis follows, if you can believe it. As many will note, it’s the best class-related Muppets video since their response to Fox News’s allegations that their new movie was teaching kids to hate capitalism. To which I respond: Hey, did you know that Obamacare could actually get overturned by the Supreme Court? The world is unequivocally awful.
