Another Oz Ad on ABC

Earlier tonight ABC aired another exclusive "Muppets' Wizard of Oz" advertisements during their primetime programing. A Special commercial aired during ABC's "Desprate Housewives" delighted not only Muppet fans but also the fans of the hit ABC show. The new ads used the Muppet character linked the themes of the current ABC show with the upcoming tele-film. This was similar to the "Lost" and"Alias" themed ads that were seen earlier this month. In the ad Kermit is seen looking at a sign that points to one way to "Oz" and the other way to "Wisteria Lane" . He starts heading toward Wisteria Lane but Miss Piggy yells at him so he goes the other way towards Oz. The ad ends with the ABC logo and quick information plugging the film. ABC and The Muppet Holding Company will not commented on the possibility of any other ads in this campaign and if any promotion will air with during other popular ABC shows. If any other ads surface I'll keep you posted; and hopefully these ads find their way onto the August DVD release of the movie. Be sure to keep your eye on ABC, because the promotion will continue to build as we get closer to the debut on May 20th.
