Back in 2006, Kermit the Frog teamed up with Ford to become the official spokesfrog for the Ford Escape Hybrid. Kermit the Frog has since appeared in several advertisements, including a 2006 Superbowl commercial, to promote the environmentally friendly vehicle. Recently Ford unveiled the 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid and Kermit is onboard once again.
Kermit is currently appearing in special video inserts featured throughout the new website for the 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid (click here). Video footage includes Kermit in reporter garb "on location in the Internet" announcing the 2008 Escape, Kermit dressed in a Ford lab coat inspecting the 2008 Escape, Kermit backpacking through the wilderness and Kermit relaxing on a log in the swamp. The videos are also slightly interactive, as visitors can attempt to "tickle" Kermit with their mouse and Kermit will occasionally harass visitors if they linger too long on the page. Five videos of Kermit are embedded throughout in the site, through links accessible off the front page.
So check out the site, enjoy Kermit's informative and cheeky comments and learn a bit about the 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid.
