You probably know that this week marks the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street including the Muppet characters created by Jim Henson, such as Animal, Cookie Monster, Kermit, Ernie or Bert.

What you maybe didn’t know (unless you have read Malcolm Gladwell‘s The Tipping Point) is that some of the Muppets were originally created for television ads for products like coffee , meat or bread.

From YouTube, here are three of the best: Munchos, Wilkins Coffee and La Choy Chow Mein!
