I’m a fan of Google+. I wish more people were, but like so many things designed to compete with Facebook, it is having a hard time catching on an will probably be retired by Google at some point in the future.
To help promote the fledgling social network, and one of it’s features, Google created a series of live hangouts with “The Muppets”. The promotion grabbed 40,000 followers in the first day, and it looks like Google is going to go for a second round with TVC for Google+ Hangouts featuring The Muppets band rocking out in another hangout session. This is a clever, innovative, and creative way to promote the site with a popular movie/characters attached.
