The Big Game Trailer by Toyota Features The Muppets in Trouble

Toyota’s big game trailer for this year’s Super Bowl stirs up some suspense before Super Bowl Sunday in just about a week. It stars Terry Crews on a drive through the desert, which makes for a dramatic set up when he pulls up to a vehicle stranded on the side of the road. He calls to ask if anybody needs help and the tone of the teaser changes from a suspenseful to a lighthearted one — a Muppet quickly climbs into Crews' car and starts playing with the handle inside the vehicle.

As well as serving as a way to promote its 2014 Highlander, the Saatchi & Saatchi ad for Toyota simultaneously gives a boost to the upcoming ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Disney film.
