Kermit and Miss Piggy reunite over lunch

(REUTERS) - Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy have reunited for a business lunch as seen in a new video promoting the Emmys. 

The couple are seen having lunch ahead of the scheduled awards show. "Modern Family" star Julie Bowen, award-winning actress Viola Davis and "Community" actor Joel McHale make special appearances throughout the video.

The longtime lovers announced their split via social media platforms in early August. The breakup took place just weeks before the premiere of their new prime time television show "The Muppets," which airs on ABC. 

The Muppets, a collection of puppet characters created by Jim Henson in the 1950s and owned by Walt Disney Co, have become a staple of American pop culture. The 67th annual Emmy Awards take place in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, September 20.

The awards ceremony will air live on U.S. television network Fox.
