Muppets, Miss Piggy, Kermit


Everybody loves The Muppets, including Emmy nominated stars Viola Davis and Julie Bowen.

In a new ad for the Emmys and Audi, Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog meet up for a pre-Emmys power lunch in a very public place. Of course they're still broken up, Kermit is dating Dennis Denise and Piggy is very focused on their new show.

"I can't wait until next year," Miss Piggy says. "We'll be here preparing to accept our Emmys."

But Kermit is nervous Piggy will misconstrued their meeting—it's strictly business, that is until Modern Family's Bowen sends over some champagne. It may or may not be poisoned.

It's not.

Two-time Oscar nominee and How to Get Away With Murder star Davis isn't trying to poison Miss Piggy either, but she is concerned for the starlet after her breakup with Kermit. Stars, they're just like us.

Of course, no celebrity power lunch meeting would be complete without some well-placed and tipped off paparazzi. It was all a setup! Man, Piggy's cold.

Plus, E!'s Joel McHale is there to plug the Audi hybrid car. Stay tuned to see how many times the key-catching bit went awry. Everybody loves bloopers.

The Emmys air Sunday, Sept. 20 on Fox. E!'s Live From the Red Carpet kicks off at 4:30 p.m. and The Muppets premieres Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
