The Singing Film Critic: A new low?

When I heard this morning that there's a "singing film critic" on YouTube, I died a little inside. When I heard there's a puppet involved, I drafted a Last Will & Testament. But...dare I ain't bad. At least in terms of mildly entertaining online distractions, you could do worse. At least there aren't kittens. What do you think? One more bell toll for the reputation of "critics" in 2011? Harmless meme in the making? I dunno, this takeoff on Tree of Life isn't exactly groundbreaking, but it's not a bad wink.
