I must say that I am impressed with Google’s marketing efforts lately. The commercial about
Search Your World/Walking on the Internet was impressive and now the Muppets!
For more on their complete campaign, including retired basketball stars:
Google accelerated advertising for its social network by showcasing Jim Henson’s The Muppets in a new commercial about the Google Plus Hangouts feature.
The Muppets performed an impromptu band session as they rocked out to a cover of ”Under Pressure” by Queen and David Bowie through a Google Plus Hangout.
Google recently released a trio of new television commercials that promote its social network by featuring Hangouts with the Muppets,
NBA announcers, Steve Kerr, Spero Dedes, Bill Walton, Kenny Smith, and Jon Barry. This is not the first time Google collaborated with the The Muppets to advertise one of its products. There was another Muppets Hangout Nov. 7, and the search engine giant celebrated the 75th birthday of Muppet creator Jim Henson by forming an interactive Muppets’ logo for Google.
