this machine will make you want a cup of wilkins coffee
Lots of info about the spots at the Muppet Wiki, including this great quote from Senator John Marshall Butler (R-MD) from a 1959 press release criticizing the quality of broadcast television...
About the only clever advertising on the air today is 'Wilkins and Wontkins'. It pleases rather than irritates television audiences, and I am happy to learn that this series is bringing increased sales to the sponsor.
The gun to the head is a nice touch.
 Seriously, I love the web.
