Beaker's electrifying, Webby-winning performance

| No Comments

Bless that Beaker. The doomed Muppet's efforts always seem to, well, explode. But he keeps on keepin' on, and even created this viral video that won a Webby award on Monday ...

At the Webby ceremony, the tradition is that all acceptance speeches must be limited to five words (take that, Twitter!).

Some examples from this year's ceremony:

  • Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter, took the prize for breakout of the year. He said: "Creativity is a renewable resource."
  • "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane was honored for his Web series "Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy." Said MacFarlane: "What is this for again?"
  • Arianna Huffington, whose Huffington Post won for best political blog, said: "I didn't kill newspapers, OK?"
  • Jimmy Fallon, cited for using the Internet to flog his taking over NBC's "Late Night," said: "Thank God Conan got promoted."

And Beaker himself, said, well ...
