I guess Kermit has truly hit celebrity status. He's now selling cars. Jim Henson would never have allowed this. I grew up watching Sesame Street. This is about as bad as Led Zeppelin and Who songs showing up in commercials. John Lennons "Instant Karma" being used in a shoe commercial was another sham.

Advertisers often try and link their products to something good that you remember from when you were younger. It's a form of psychological warfare with the *consumer* and his/her bank account(s).

It's quite funny and ironic.

Ford is pushing themselves as if they "suddenly came up with this" and nobody else has ever had a hybrid despite honda and toyota pioneering most of this consumer wise

Ford is pushing themselves as a "green" country while their cars are probably some of the worst built, worst maintained (more pollution as the car ages) and they are fighting a law suit where they poisoned a town through the waste from their plant

Cars. And pizza. It is funny when Miss Piggy kicks him under the table for looking at Jessica Simpson though.

Jim Hensen might of allowed this I mean he did comercialize and make a ton of money of those puppets. Now I do not think Lennon would be happy about his song being on a comercial.

Yoko said it was OK. (Or does Michael Jackson own Lennon's catalogue?)
