Puppet Reviews Opera Mini for the iPhone

The people at Hoggworks make puppets, create high-quality online shows, and do a whole lot of other great stuff. Brian Hogg is the brains behind this outfit, and I’m not sure that everything is where it should be in his cranium. I mean that in a VERY good way, though. This stuff is hilarious, and nothing short of genius.

My favorite has to be the Mossberg puppet. This little guy is a parody of Wall Street Journalist Walt Mossberg.

In this video, Walt talks of how Opera embarked on the insane crusade of trying to get an Opera browser on the iPhone. He admits he’s really tired – but NOT drunk! He claims that this makes as much sense as Dom DeLuise saying he was Vegan.

In Walt’s eyes, Hell has frozen over since Apple actually approved this app. I think he starts off on a rant about Steve Jobs being his close, personal friend and making all of the rules of life. I was laughing so hard by this point that I couldn’t quite make out all of the words.

I think I’ll stop writing now. Watch the video for yourself. Nothing I say is going to make it any better than it already is.
