In 2005, a television advertising campaign for "Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper" featured a recording of Jim Henson and Frank Oz singing "Mahna Mahna." The commercial featured a couple on a date at a fancy restaurant. The man is claiming to have won the lottery and given it to charity. As he talks, his date sips the drink and suddenly the restaurant breaks into a musical number, with all the patrons and servers bobbing their heads to the song.



Ernie welcomes a flock of sheep to the party.

A very brief clip from a Sesame Street sketch with Ernie and some sheep appeared in a commercial first shown during the 2011 Super Bowl. The clip was digitally altered to include St. Louis Rams football caps on the sheep and a sign on Ernie's door.

The commercial also contained segments from Happy Days (with Henry Winkler and Ron Howard), Beverly Hills, 90210, Seinfeld (with Michael Richards), The Office, The Sopranos (with James Gandolfini and Tony Sirico), Cheers (with George Wendt), The Golden Girls (with Betty White), Full House (with Dave Coulier), The Dukes of Hazzard, Family Guy, Family Matters, The Brady Bunch, ALF, How I Met Your Mother (with Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel), Friends, Glee, Modern Family, The Simpsons, and South Park.
