We’re Doing a Sequel – Muppets Most Wanted Music Video on Disney Video

It’s intercut with some trailer stuff, like Disney doesn’t know you’re going to see Muppets Most Wanted anyway (you are, right?). And it’s as splendidly self-aware as I expect all Muppet movies to be. I may be dating myself here, but who’s the kid tossing the flowers at 00:50? He’s in all the trailers, and I have no clue what cameo I’m missing. I feel old.

Behind the cut you’ll find another Muppets Most Wanted promo vid, this one of Rowlf and Rizzo going through the drive-through at an ice cream shop. It’s exactly that. It’s funnier than it has any right to be.

Our Favorite 2014 Super Bowl Ads Both Aired and Unaired [Video]

Whether or not you care about the Super Bowl, you probably know that it marks the airing of some of the best commercials and that companies spend a lot of effort and money to make an impression. We’ve collected our favorite Super Bowl commercials as well as a couple commercials that won’t be aired during the game but are clearly related to it.  From Tom Hiddleston in a Jaguar commercial to the Muppets being awesome, there’s a lot to love here.  On a related note, if you’re going to watch the Super Bowl and you see any gross and sexist ads, you can always tweet about them with the hashtag #notbuyingit to tell the advertisers you’re not interested in the way they sell things.
