Recently separated Muppet power couple Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog power lunch among the Hollywood elite in this new Emmy-themed film from Audi. The former duo powow at a fancy eatery ahead of the 67th annual Emmys on Sunday night and their return to primetime next Tuesday.
Miss Piggy, however, steps away to go all diva over Modern Family's Julie Bowen, who sends over a bottle of champagne, chat with How to Get Away With Murder lead Viola Davis and take a paparazzi shot with Kermie that no doubt will spark reunion suspicions of gossipy fans and jealousy of the frog's new gal Denise (or "Dennis," as Miss Piggy calls her).
After the whirwhind meeting, Kermit comes away blindsided, reciting his famous phrase "It's not that easy being green," only to be challenged by Joel McHale. "It is now," he says, just before stepping into his Audi Sportback e-tron hybrid.
The film, created out of PMK*BNC and directed by Kirk Thatcher, follows Audi and the Television Academy's fun Emmys promo from last year, "Barely Legal Pawn," starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Audi and PMK*BNC also previously another Hollywood laugher Spock vs. Spock, starring the late Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto.
