  1. I love the reveal at the end where you see the facial elements (and other things) were superimposed live over the film! It would be fun to search and see if the Jim?Johnny interview after the film is posted…..after I watched the clip, in that wonderful YouTube way, then just watched a 1965 Muppets on the Tonight Show clip, from a New Year’s Eve show, with Woody Allen sitting on the couch!
