Run The Rock — or Just Bask On It?

February 10, 2006

It’s not easy being green. At least not normally, for Muppet legend Kermit the Frog. But the star of Ford’s new Escape Hybrid commercials was singing — er, croaking — a different tune during an appearance at the Chicago Auto Show this week. It was hard to tell who was more star-struck though, when Kermit was joined on stage by former NBA basketball star Magic Johnson. Linked to Ford through his scholarship program for needy youngsters, Johnson has served as a corporate spokesman for the past four years. The Frog offered to take the basketball legend on in a game of one-on-one after the Ford news conference ended. Vegas oddsmakers take note: we’re putting our green on Magic. —TCC Team
