The Muppets Audition For The “Smoke Monster” On Lost, And Also A Question About This Kind Of Thing

Here’s a question: what is up with Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse? They’re writers on a TV show, right? And TV shows have ended before, right? I’m only asking because I have never seen anything like this before. They’re all over the place. Between these Muppets videos and that Funny or Die video they made with Sarah Silverman and their nightly appearances on every talk show, they are basically celebrities, apparently? Just the world’s two most awkward and uncomfortable celebrities who don’t seem to want to be in front of the camera at all but are in front of the camera so much. Has this ever happened before? You never see David Simon doing shit like this. It’s just weird, and I’m curious what is up with it. I’ll take my answer off the air. (Via Vulture.)
