OK Go and the Muppets dominate the viral-video sphere of influence--the former with groundbreaking music videos like the treadmill-tastic "Here It Goes Again" and the Mousetrap-like "This Too Shall Pass," the latter with their genius "Bohemian Rhapsody" cover. So it was only a matter of time before the two would face off for Interweb supremacy.

This fight finally took place at last week's Webby Awards, when Muppets drummer Animal engaged in an epic backstage staring contest with the Webby-winning rock band's drummer, Dan Konopka--while Zach Galifianakis and Ira Glass from "This American Life" watched on.

The result was, of course, the ultimate viral-video experience. Who won in this historical battle of drummers, wits, and retinas? You'll just have to watch below to find out:

Whoa. After witnessing what went down here, all we can say is....REMATCH!
