    It seems like Disney has found their audience as evident by the number of Muppet related advertisements associated with P&F. :)

    I like how Disney's rebranding the international name as JUST The Muppets. I never quite cared much for some of the international names they used for them.

    And we really got some choice sequences in that commercial. Gassy shoes or not. Love the bit with the Mayhem getting pulled off stage.

    I think the Mayhem part if when they're getting the gang back together.

    I have to admit, the voices kind of surprised me, but there were some new sequences in there that I absolutely love. Anyone have a rough translation of what the narrator was saying in the beginning with the count down?

    I think it's along the lines of "What's green, and yellow, and orange [...] and has a bear, a pig, a frog [...]" lol.

    Someone actually reported the TV commercial version before, and basically this commercial is the Brazilian translation... so basically, as stated before, the commercial is more like:

    Except for the Fozzie thing, I'd wager this is exactly the same ad. Only, of course, in Brazilian Portuguese. I hope that the TV spots can pop up on their official YT channels.

    The Fozzie thing was in there.

    So it was.... I literally must've blinked and missed it.

    Still... you gotta wonder what the heck's going on here. Almost seems like that old bit where someone's on top of someone's shoulders in a suit.

    I'm thinking that's it. Maybe the gang were unable to get into Piggy's building, and had to put on a disguise to get past security? We'll have to wait and see. But this would explain why Fozzie wears a hat and false moustache in the footage from this scene that wound up in the theatrical trailers.

    Slightly off topic, but that office reminds me of Lady Holiday's office from GMC.

    The televised version of the movie commercial is starting to play in Disney Stores. Just thought you may like to know that.

    Hopefully we'll have at least a few Muppet things in Disney store by next month.

    Great commercial, so glad they're marketing this to the international crowd. The timing of the vocal dubs could be better, but I understand why they dub it the way they do

    And yeah, holy mole Thog looks like he grew. He's like as tall as a 1 story building almost and makes Sweetums look like Robin
