But there is one prize he says, with tongue firmly in check, that’ll top them all – beating The Muppets’ star drummer Animal in a drum-off.
“Been waiting years for this Animal,” he sneers in the hilarious video below.
Animal strikes first before Dave taps a cymbal and fires back, “Oh what’s that, a bell? Time for school,” before launching into his first solo.
The madness in the “drum-derdome” quickly escalates as Dave and Animal pound furiously on their kits.
When neither is able to gain an edge, the snares, toms and cymbals start flying until both are left breathless and clutching their sticks.
“You win,” they say simultaneously.
Diehard Muppets’ fans will recall the pair has a history. Dave appeared in the 2011 Muppets film as Animool, the drummer of a spoof group called The Moopets led by Fozzie Bear.
It seems Animal has held a grudge ever since because of Dave’s ‘questionable’ portrayal in the tribute act.
In the movie, the former Nirvana drummer’s percussion consists of him gently tapping on a tiny tambourine.
The beat battle takes place during the closing credits of The Muppets episode that also features a special guest appearance from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who sings a duet with Miss Piggy.
