Lipton Tea Ad Turns NYC Into A City Of Muppets


Sure, according to most of the country, New York City is filled with animals. But, what if it was actually filled with Animals?

Lipton Tea’s new ad answers this question that no one has ever thought to ask — with a commercial that follows our protagonist Kermit amongst an urban jungle of nothing but Animals.

The message that Lipton is trying to convey, is to remind us to think positive and “Be More Tea.” And, that NYC is filled with nothing more than mindless inconsiderate puppets.

Later versions of what eventual became Cookie Monster included an appearance in green on the Ed Sullivan show, then toothless and shilling for Munchos.
