Nerdist Presents: Puppets Understand (Featuring Kate Micucci and Tony Thaxton) Premieres Today on Nerdist.com!
Sometimes when you’re feeling down, you just need a friend. Lucky for us, our friends Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates) and Tony Thaxton are here to cheer us up with their new jingle, “Puppets Understand!”
Along with their trusty puppet friends, brought to life by puppeteers Erik Kuska, Adrian Leonard, Alex Griffin, Christine Papalexis, Jonah Ray, Christina Johns, Deanna Rooney, Maya Ferrara, Todd Cooper, Justin Hertner, Nikki Kelly, and Rose Shawn, Kate and Tony teach us that life is anything but hum-drum when your best friend is a dinosaur who thinks that she’s a bunny. So, gather all your fuzzy buddies, and sing along to the latest video from Nerdist Presents!
