Kermit the Frog – celebrated actor, author, singer and journalist – is going to be in a car ad, Ford’s Superbowl ad for their Escape Hybrid, to be precise.
The inevitable tagline (from me) – “It’s easy being green.”
It’s got it all: the cute, memorable catchphrase, the double entendre of Kermit’s signature song, the environmental angle for folks in the market for a hybrid car.
Perfect. Cheesy, but perfect.
Behind the scenes of the commercial shoot:
I think it should be a fun ad. Combined with the new Muppets/Pizza Hut ad that will also debut on Super Sunday, we’re in for a double dose of Muppets soon.

UPDATE: Watch the Superbowl ad!
