Kermit, Miss Piggy and Joel McHale get awkward in Emmy promotional video

It’s been a rough few weeks for Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, news of the famous couple splitting up has been hitting headlines across the globe. The worst part of the break-up is that the two still have to work together and the launch of their new series “The Muppets” on ABC is only a few weeks away.

Ahead of the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards this weekend, the Television Academy and through a partnership with Audi, teamed up for a wonderful new video called “Kermit Gets Set Up.”

In the video released this week, Kermit the Frog and the Miss Piggy meet up for the first time since their very-public breakup to discuss how they are going work together on their new show. The rendezvous quickly goes awry when insults start flying and the meeting turns into the ultimate Hollywood power lunch. Featuring cameos by some of this year’s most popular female Emmy nominees including Julie Bowen (“Modern Family”), Viola Davis (“How to Get Away With Murder”), and a hilarious appearance by Emmy-nominated Joel McHale (“The Soup”).

Why can’t these kids tell they are crazy about one another? We can only hope that they come to their senses when their series premieres on ABC later this fall.
