The beauty of shooting a motion picture with Kermit, Miss Piggy and the rest of Jim Henson’s classic Muppet characters is that when you need them for additional promotional campaigns, they’re always available. Gonzo isn’t like Tom Hanks or Julia Roberts, jetting off to the next gig on the far side of the world. He’s a puppet, waiting to be picked up and used again and again in clever The Hangover Part II or The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo spoofs.

The latest, performed for AMC Theatres, addresses common courtesy in the multiplex. Check it out below:

The irony, of course, is that the clip touches on all of the reasons people would not want to see the new Muppets movie in a theater. Why put up with idiots on banana cell phones and texting morons that seem to congregate in area theaters? Then again, that’s likely not the point the Muppets want to make in the new spot, which does manage to advertise that their latest film, The Muppets, opens in theaters on Nov. 23.

So, if you do go to the movies to see The Muppets, leave your microwave at home. The Muppets, and all of the other patrons who paid good money to see James Bobin’s new family comedy, thank you in advance.
