“What could be more fun and entertaining than having Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy help launch one of the biggest collaborations on Evine,” said Bob Rosenblatt, Chief Executive Officer at Evine. “The Muppets have brought their own blend of heart and humor to film and television for over 60 years and, for the first time ever, will grace the ‘face’ of Invicta watches on Evine. This exclusive, world-wide launch of the Muppets Watch Collection – complete with two of the most iconic Muppets themselves – is a moment our fans won’t want to miss. Miss Piggy herself told me the other day that she is counting on her Invicta watch selling out before Kermit’s. I guess only time will tell.”
“As an international diva, I’m in constant demand at premieres, parties and swanky soirees in fabulous places – like Miami! To keep track of my time, I need a watch that is fashionable, yet fun! And what could be more fashionable and fun than to look at one’s wrist and see moi looking back at you!” said Miss Piggy, fresh from her latest red carpet appearance at London’s Fashion Awards. “For moi, partnering with Evine and Invicta has made this dream of fabulously fashionable fun come true. And I can’t wait to share this dream with all of you when I appear on Evine with, uh, what’s his name? Oh yes, that frog I used to date...Kermit.”
As part of the world launch event, Invicta has created an exclusive Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy version of their popular Lupah collection watch design. In addition to having a choice of Kermit or Miss Piggy, fans can also customize their watch in their choice of size, either Men’s grand or Women’s baby, and choice of color, either silver tone or gold tone. During the event, additional exclusive-to-Evine Muppet timepieces will also debut, including Animal and Fozzie Bear styles. Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy will make several appearances live on set, giving exclusive interviews with Evine’s very own Kendy Kloepfer and urging fans to support Team Kermit or Team Piggy during the broadcast as well as on Facebook. Fans can also follow along as Miss Piggy takes over Evine’s Instagram account, sharing her unique behind the scenes access.
