Remember That Time Prince Sang About Breakfast With The Muppets

Prince brought a lot of joy to this world before his untimely passing. And while many of us may remember him as a very serious and talented musician, The Purple One also had a great sense of humour and fun.

Oh and a strange fascination with breakfast it seems – as this video of him singing about everybody’s favourite morning meal with The Muppets shows.

Shot in 1997 during his ‘artist formerly known as’ days, the skit starts with Prince betting he can write a song about what’s on the menu in The Muppets’ commissary.

The resulting song still somehow manages to be about Prince and a girl though, and the video has some of the best 90’s special effects and pouting close-ups of The Purple One ever caught on camera.

Now this, of course, was not to be the last breakfast-themed musical offering from the artist, with his Dave Chappelle cover-arted single from a couple of years back Breakfast Can Wait bearing out the trend.

Anyway, check it out for yourself below.
