Glad that more of these are airing now. Was only catching the truncated version of the one where :super: mentions he also fixes cars, got to see the whole version of that one. Also caught one where the gang including :stick_out_tongue:, :insatiable:, :super:, and :frown: ask J.K. Simmons about different scenarios. There was 1 with :batty: that premiered today, didn't fully understand it, but it made me smile.

Who does the VOICES for these now?
I recognize Frank Oz for Grover, but not for Bert.

Uh, actually Eric Jacobson is :super: and :frown:'s performer, Matt Vogel as :batty:, with David Rudman as :insatiable:, but I'm not sure who voices :stick_out_tongue: and was wondering that myself.

So Frank Oz does not voice in the commercials then, right?

If Jim Henson were alive today,
do you think he would allow/participate in this? :smile:

We used to have a thread regarding whether Jim would approve of current productions. I don't see why he would be opposed to the Sesame characters involved in these Farmer's Insurance commercials, it's no different than the batch of Mastercard commercials with characters from The Muppet Show back in 2004 or the American Express commercial he starred in himself surrounded by Muppet monsters. :wisdom:
