Having seen the Wilkins Coffee commercials, I’m a bit surprised to see some of the gags redone word-for-word.

Except role-reversed since in Wilkins the muppet with the Kermity voice is the one exploding and otherwise injuring people.

And there’s similar re-use between the bread and sausage commercials. I wonder if they were all regional products so you’d never have people see commercials for more than one of them unless they traveled.

Always loved Kermit singing ‘A Horse Named Bill’
