The promotional engine for The Muppets is being revved fairly often by the Disney powers that be. In the past four days, we've seen a ton of new content promoting the film on television and Disney's main website.
First up is an official, Emmy-themed commercial for the movie that aired during FOX's broadcast of the countdown to the Emmys red carpet ceremony. It's very notable because for the first time in promotion for the movie, we get to hear and see Pepe prominently featured!
Our friend Chris Stulz uploaded the video for us and has also provided us with an awesome breakdown of the commercial! Check it all out below:
And if that weren't enough (and, c'mon, we know it's not), yet another commercial for the movie aired during Tuesday night's season premiere episode of Glee. Lucky for you, I'm an unabashed (well... slightly bashed) Gleek and as soon as I finished watching the episode, I had my brother record the commercial on his iPhone and I uploaded it to The Muppet Mindset YouTube account... check it out below!
We don't have a breakdown of this commercial at the moment... but do take note that it features chickens clucking Cee Lo Green's "Forget You," which is fantastic. Plus, more Pepe (in Behemoth's mouth!), lots of Scooter, penguins, and just a general awesome feeling.
How awesome is this? Three brand new videos promoting The Muppets since Sunday... and each with new content. Incredible! What a great time it is to be a Muppet fan.
