Watch: The Muppets’ Swedish Chef Battles Gordon Ramsay in an Epic Food Fight

Gordon Ramsay Swedish Chef Muppets Food Fight

First it was Lady Gaga singing ‘Applause’ with Kermit and Miss Piggy—and now it’s Gordon Ramsay going head to head with the Swedish Chef.

To whet our appetites for the Muppets Most Wanted movie opening in March, the hot-tempered Hell’s Kitchen star takes on the lovable, unintelligible Muppet in an adorable new “Muppisode” web video.

Scene: While the Gonzo, Fozzie and the rest of the Muppet gang are enjoying an outdoor festival, Ramsay roars up in an imposing food truck and challenges the Swedish Chef—who’s running his own, small food truck called Børk Børk Førk—to a cook-off, Top Chef-style.

Watch Sweetums, the 9-foot brown shaggy Muppet monster, bumble his way around Ramsay’s mobile kitchen, enduring the chef’s notorious wrath for dropping pans and messing up a skillet of sautéed onions. “I did my best,” he says; “Not good enough,” Ramsay retorts. Meanwhile, Beaker frantically chops carrots for the chef’s Swedish meatball dish.

Most of our favorite Muppet characters make a cameo, casting some playful jabs at foodie culture along the way. “It’s still a cupcake though, right?” Miss Piggy (who’s been known to throw her dessert at paparazzi) asks about a cupcake described as “sea salt infused with a beet juice emulsion” before taking a seat at the judges’ table along with Dr. Bunsen and ornery old-man critics Statler and Waldorf.

But we’re not spilling who wins this food fight—you’ll have to watch to find out.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
