Warning. Take off your cynical cap just for a minute. Okay, now watch this video.
Yes, it's a Disney plug for a new Muppets movie coming this fall. Yes it's also a plug for the new "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie. But it's also Kermit the Frog at a red carpet celebration (or black carpet, as Kermit notes), and he chats up some of Hollywood's biggest names (and kisses some, too). There's Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Kirstie Alley, Vanessa Hudgens, Keith Richards and yes, Steven Tyler (that's the 2:18 mark, where they chat about motorcycles).
Is it too late for the "Today" show to consider Kermit for Meredith Viera's spot?
