These are ad spots for Wilkins Coffee that were done by Jim Henson as some of his earliest professional TV work. Still funny as hell, and even more so in this day and age when soccer moms would faint dead away if they found little Ashleigh and Jaysen watching puppets shoot, stab and club each other. Pure gold! :twisted:

Thank you for showing me this. I've been dying to see these commercials ever since I read about them.
Pure genius.

“I've got 5 aces. Can you beat that?”
“I've got a can of Wilkon's coffee.”

I think someone should make a “Wilkons coffee” comic. That would rock! :wink:

Man, we need more threat-based advertisements these days.

I can just see a Burger King commercial; “Buy a quarter pounder with cheese, or we can't guarantee what the King will do to you… or your anus.

Burger King: You will, if you know what's good for you.



And get some fries while you're at it.”

Niiiiiiiiice! :lol:

Except:
  • 1. BK does not carry the Quarter Pounder
    2. Eating a Quarter pounder with cheese is probably much more hazzerdous for your anus. Cheese binds. :P
