Kermit rolls a joint in joke email

An animated clip of Kermit the Frog rolling a cannabis joint is being circulated by email in Chile





The clip shows Kermit teaching new cannabis users how to roll a joint, reports Las Ultimas Noticias online.

The email is believed to have been created as a joke but advertiser Paula Rojas says it could damage the image of the children's character.

She said: "I have seen many characters being used in a improper way but it is the first time I've seen a children's character being used to promote drugs.

"That is serious. And unfortunately there is nothing anyone can do to stop it."

A spokesman for Disney Chile, who hold the rights to the frog's image in Chile, said: "Kermit is one of the most famous characters we have, it is not a surprise to us that his image is being used in such way."

'fraid not CH. I got these stills from a Chilean news site.
By the way, if you go searching, bear in mind that they don't call him "Kermit" in Chile. The call him René. So search for "Rana René" (rana being Spanish for "frog").

Note also that it's a Powerpoint .ppt not an avi/mov/mpeg.etc. So I'm not convinced it will be an animation at all. May just be a slide pack. The article in the second link below descibes it simply as a step-by-step instruction manual.

I had a brief look under the Kazaa p2p network yestereday, but will look more extensively this weekend.
