Arlo rejected from the Muppets for being a gamer

REDDING, Calif. — Following the discovery of his long series of videos on various niche gaming topics, the Muppets announced that YouTube personality Arlo was no longer being considered to join their troupe due to him being a gamer.

“Well, my friends, I can’t say that this decision is one I agree with,” Arlo said in a disappointed tone of voice usually reserved for disappointed reviews of new installments in the paper mario franchise. “I thought I was a shoemaker for the Muppets. I mean, look at me. I fit the part. I’ve got big googly eyes, blue fur, everything! But sadly, I guess the world doesn’t It’s just not ready for a Muppet player. Their loss.”

The decision may have surprised some, based on Sesame Street’s moves towards inclusion and adding more diversity to their Muppet lineup, but sources say there’s still a long way to go. gaming media personalities in popular culture.

“Arlo is a great guy, but let’s be honest, gaming YouTubers just have a certain stigma attached to them,” Kermit the Frog said. “He clearly knows his stuff, but I just don’t know if I can trust the judgment of someone who didn’t appreciate Paper Mario: The Origami King. I mean, sure, it’s not exactly like the old Paper Mario games, but is it necessary?”

Arlo said in his 40-minute video on the subject that despite the result, he has a conclusion about what the future holds for his career without the Muppets.

“At the end of the day, I’m always going to be myself,” Arlo said. “I do not have be a Muppet to release a great in-depth movie Zelda analysis of trailers, or to explore my hopes and dreams for a Luigi’s mansion sequel, or to raise awareness of the ongoing problem of joycon drift. Can the Muppets do any of these important jobs? I mean, seriously Nintendo, you gotta fix these things! I’m almost begging you! I to know you look at this!”

At press time, the Muppets were scrambling to fill an unexpected second vacancy in their troupe after Fozzie Bear’s controversial appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience gone viral.
