Marsimoto with Kermit in 2012.

Marsimoto is the alter ego of Marteria, the stage name of German rapper Marten Laciny (b. 1982).

Marsimoto was created as a tribute to US rapper Madlib's alter ego Quasimoto; both are notable for their pitched voice. Due to the positive fan feedback, Marteria released several solo albums as Marsimoto, the latest one being Green Velvet.

To cross-promote Green Velvet, Marsimoto recorded a cover of "It's Not Easy Bein' Green" with Kermit the Frog, while the Muppet was visiting Berlin to advertise Die Muppets in January 2012.
