Thoughts that went through my head upon viewing this:

What a great ad for the Muppets new movie.

Did Toyota really have to watermark the whole spot?

Since when is Terry Crews considered boring?

Why are we making fun of old people who play bingo?

When did Janis start sounding like an unconvincing female impersonator?

How exactly is the Highlander not boring besides the fact that it seats a bunch of people?

Why are they all of a sudden at Carnival and why does Carnival look like Southern California instead of Rio?

Oh please tell me at the end of the spot, Terry Crews has just been hallucinating. Please tell me it's a bad trip.

When did Kermit become a Middle American suburbanite?

    The only thing that was good about this was a muppet saying that terrible slogan. The intonation.
