    Just saw a commercial this morning for (I think) American Express ... and a really old clip of Jim Henson and a few Muppets (incl. Scooter and Piggy, I think) was featured and I was like HUH?

    Did you see it on tv? Because there is an American Express card commercial with Jim, Floyd, Gloat, Scooter, a pig, Nigel, and a couple other muppets. Filmed during Season 1 of "The Muppet Show."

    Yeah, I just saw it this morning ... it shows a bunch of clips of various people and their projects. It requests that viewers let them know of their special projects.

    Lol I remember reading about that in an old book about commercials!

    Jim: "Do you know me? I created the Muppets."

    Muppets: "Big deal!"

    I have the original commercial, but I never dreamed they would re-air it! That is so cool!

    There was a similair commercial with Mel Blanc around the same time.

    Think I recall seeing the original commercial though I oddly don't remember seeing Jim himself.

    Maybe youtube has the full commercial.

    And here it is. though the quality isn't all that great and it cuts off too soon.

    American Express Commercial w/ Jim Henson

    I dunno if a thread like this is on here yet, but in case it's not, has anyone seen the new American Express commercial with Jim Henson in it? It shows an old clip, but it's surprising enough to see him in it.

    Here it is:

    It's been out for a minute, but it's still pretty new.

    Your thoughts?:coy:
