If it was just Rowlf the Dog telling us he was a Flyers fan, we might have passed on pointing out this promo for the new Muppets movie. But whatever marketing people put this together realized there are penguins on staff over in Muppet Land, and used them in a delightful double entendre.

So good work Flyers and Muppets people for forcing me to spend part of my day today on the Muppet Wiki.

Here's what I learned today:

Due to Rowlf's musical skill, it is sometimes incorrectly assumed that he was a part-time member of The Electric Mayhem Band. Although Rowlf played in the orchestra and back-up on several numbers with musicians in the Mayhem band, Rowlf only accompanied the Electric Mayhem three times
