Muppets - Kerkit with a green Lantern

Well Kermit is getting in on the Green Lantern promotional bandwagon.

Kermit is of course green and Disney have provided us with a rather nice poster of him carrying a lantern. That and the ring on his finger are emiting a green light. Judging from our review we think the parody is better than the actual film.

Here’s the press release

Hi ho! Kermit the Frog here!

I sure hope you enjoy this Being Green trailer? and our other parody trailer Green With Envy Fuzzy Pack. Now, after much ado and Miss Piggy’s insistence that she get final cut we’re finally ready for the world premiere of the official trailer for our upcoming movie, The Muppets.

You can watch it everywhere on Monday June 20th at 8am Pacific Time. Be sure not to miss it!

Amphibiously yours, Kermit The Frog

In a separate note it is always interesting to see how other countries do the promotional work of Hollywood films.

I am currently in Thailand and caught up with the film company here that are releasing Green Lantern. On Wednesday they held a promotion event in the Paragon Department store cinema in Siam in the center of Bangkok. The PR person informed me they did not have any real stars from the States or UK but they did have the dubbing artists.

Below is a small selection of pictures of the event. What you can’t see in them is the amazing selection of green food they dished up for the event (and no there was not a Green Curry is sight!).
