Dance your cares away, worries for another day...

In what has to be the ultimate five minute anti-depressant, the 90's-favorite piano rock band Ben Folds Five has teamed up with the Jim Henson Company's jolly subterranean rock dwellers for the worlds-colliding video for the song "Do It Anyway." It's the band's first track since 1999 -- once they broke up, Folds dropped the Five from the name and continued making his own records - and the video also helps mark the Fraggles 30th anniversary.

Chris Hardwick, of Nerdist, helped make the video, and as he says, "If you walk in and you see Ben Folds and you see Fraggles dancing around, and your day isn't expontentially happier, you are dead inside."

However one receives the video, this is sure to generate less controversy than their Fraggles' last collaboration, with Chick-fil A.
