    My fave was the one with Uncle D, I'm now in the mood for some egg salad. Love the drawl in his delivery and :cluck:'s reactions.

    But there's one thing I question about this campaign... Small Buisness Saturday on Saturday, November 28? Seriously? Yes, support your local business on Saturday November 28, the day after you've been fending off mad hordes of crazed shoppers on Black Friday on the 27th. :skeptical:

    Okay. I saw Piggy's during The Muppets tonight and it confused me. I thought that was part of the show. I may want to check that ad again. So Janice has a doppleganger? Rully. Maybe Constantine's long-lost girlfriend. :confused:

    Wait, was that a Muppet at the organic gardening store :flirt: visited? Thought it was a human character. *Shrugs.

    Glad to see Uncle Deadly getting his own commercial, and especially glad to see some chickens back in Muppet stuff. The current show could use some background chickens.

    Nice to see the Muppets reuniting with their old friends Amex. Fozzie and Uncle Deadly were my favorites here. :)

    Uncle Deadly is the sole drive behind my love for the Muppets lately. What a great promo!

    These are all great! So happy to see a wide variety of characters used in this campaign. I think the Fozzie, Janice and Uncle Deadly bits are my favourites.

    (Uncle Deadly! Seriously! Did ANYBODY see it coming that Uncle Deadly is emerging as a bit of a Muppet cult hero for the new millennium? I'm sure even Matt Vogel is as amazed by this as we are...)

    I saw a new one today with Kermit and Miss Piggy for Capital One. It kind of surprised me because I thought AE and CO were rival companies. How can they both use the Muppets?

    Unless they signed a contract stating they can't appear in commercials for rivals, I think the Muppets can appear on anything they're able to.

    That Fozzie one was hilarious, no charge for the best customer.

    There's another new one with Scooter getting lunch for Miss Piggy at Happy Hank's Food Barn. The link's the first one in line in the article covering this promotion at the Muppet Mindset.

    That sounds like a good one, Count. Can you be a little more specific about the link though?

    Unfortunately I'm unable to copy the link. Just go to the Muppet Mindset, you'll find an article covering the Muppet Small Business Saturday commercial videos, the one with Scooter is the first one that you can click on the relevant youtube "Watch" button once there. Hope this helps.

    Got it. Thanks guys.

    This is a heck of a lot easier than keeping my TV on all day and waiting for the ad to appear. :)
