Muppets... Advertising

I feel a little bad about my last post. Mmmrhubarb was nice enough to point out some of Kermit's previous advertising work. If I am going to keep posting cards on this blog, I am going to have to step my game up. Research is going to be important.

I spent this morning searching the internet for more Muppet advertising. There were a ton of commercials and advertisements, but I found one that particularly caught my interest. It is an interesting crossover between Muppets and baseball cards. (Stupid idea... I know.)

TBCB Muppets - #10 Gonzo

Design based on: 1991 Griffey Card Guard Promo #1 - Ken Griffey Jr.

That is too funny. Gonzo is the perfect choice.

Hey, for someone who uses a Muppet avatar, I'm expected to know a little bit about the buggers.

I'd like to see a Lew Ford card converted to a Lew Zealand card ;-)

Nice Gonzo adaptation

btw, look up "Muppets Wilkins" on youtube someday -- those coffee commercials were something brutal!
