WATCH: ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ ‘New Mission’ Big Game Ad (Spoilers)

'Muppets Most Wanted' New Mission AdThere are certain inalienable truths in life, one of which is that there can be only one Kermit the Frog. Event the world’s most evilest villain, Constantine, can’t approach the purity, the sanctity that is Kermit — certainly not with his heavy, thick accent and mole. Right?

Truth be told, Walt Disney Studios has already hinted at some strange goings-on in The Muppets Most Wanted, most notably with the wedding scene, but this new ad for Muppets Most Wanted, titled ‘New Mission’ pretty much just lays it all out on the metaphorical table. Somehow, someway, Constantine and Kermit have become completely indiscernible — at least physically. So when Piggy meets Kermit at the altar, who is she really marrying? We just may have to wait until March 21, 2014 to find out (or at least until the books are released on February 11).

Muppets Toyota Highlander Joyride Super Bowl Ad

In addition to its sixty-second ‘Big Game’ ad for the 2014 Highlander which features ex-NFLer/actor Terry Crews playing straight man to Disney’s Muppets, Toyota has now release an extended music video for the ad’s original song, ‘No Room For Boring.’ You can see the entire music video embedded below.

With their over-the-top personalities, the Muppets teach Crews’ character a thing or two about ‘unborifying’ his lifestyle as they ‘borrow’ his sweet ride, the Toyota Highlander. The spot features humorous hijinks, dancing and surprises — and no Muppet caper would be complete without an original song. Viewers will see that with seating for up to eight human passengers or more than a dozen Muppets, the all-new Toyota Highlander has plenty of room for everything — everything except boring.
