Muppets in "Teen Stress" PSA

In 2005 the Muppets (Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Statler and Waldorf) filmed a public service announcement for the Will Rogers Institute with Terri Hatcher. The PSA, which deals with teen stress, is finally being seen by the public as it is being played before the feature presentation at many AMC Movie Theatres as well as in several other media outlets and channels. You can view the PSA online at the Will Rogers website by clicking here (view the "2005 The Muppets/Teri Hatcher 'Teen Stress' – 60" for the Muppet's ad.) A special thanks to the dozens of readers who e-mailed me their reports of seeing the PSA play at their local cinema.

Well, Piggy was great. Gonzo was fab. Fozzie's voice was off, but his puppeteer was good. S and W were sort of, their modern selves.

The only major problem I had with it actually was Piggy wearing a blue dress critizicing the color blue :p

Over all I thought it was funny and cute. And, wow, the Muppets get to be at movie theatres!

I actually saw this yesterday before "V for Vendetta." The funny thing is, Teri Hatcher looks a lot less realistic than any of the Muppets do...
