The Muppets' Rowlf Goes Viral Singing Biz Markie's 'Just a Friend' to Miss Piggy

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Rowlf, the piano-playing singing dog of Muppets fame, is going viral after a creative video editor mashed up Biz Markie`s 1989 hit single Just a Friend to footage of Rowlf from The Muppet Show.


In the video, Rowlf takes to the keys to express his apparent unrequited love of Kermit`s squeeze Miss Piggy."


Biz Markie released his hit single "Just a Friend" in 1989, around the same time that the seminal gangsta rap collective NWA was hitting it big with "Straight Outta Compton. "

Biz is a big (emphasis on the big) loveable nerd, and his goofy style of rap was overwhelmed by gangsta rap.
