Orange is a telecommunications company based in Europe that offers Internet and other digital services.
The segment features the cast of The Muppet Show (in a promotional sketch for The Muppets), where Orange (a UK cell phone company) has taken over the show, dubbing it "The Orange Show," building to a musical climax, and a reminder to switch off all mobile phones before the screening with the tagline "Don't let a mobile phone ruin your movie."
It was produced by creative agency Fallon, with DisneyMedia+ Solutions. Kirk Thatcher directed the spot.
Kermit the Frog was quoted in the press release:
“Working with the Muppets, I’m used to things getting completely out of control and crazy. But thanks to the folks at Orange, I think we took out of control and crazy to a new level. It was a lot of fun, but I really hope they stick to their day job running a mobile network.”
