The Muppets say “drink coffee, or else”

This is a series of coffee adverts from the 1950s. So cool. They were made by Muppet creator Jim Henson, here are some details on the brief he was given…

β€œIn 1957, Jim Henson was approached by a Washington, D.C. coffee company to produce ads for Wilkins Coffee. The local stations only had ten seconds for station identification, so the commercials had to be lightning-fast β€” essentially, eight seconds for the commercial pitch and a two-second shot of the product.”
