Hulu has released a new commercial, highlighing that it”s Time to Have Hulu”.
The spot opens with two friends on a sofa searching for something to watch on TV. The guy is frustrated by the time it takes to find a good show but his friend tells him about Hulu, which has not only live sports, but also live channels, exclusive series, and originals – shortly everything he loves. Shocked by the news, he drops and shatters his smiley face mug. Other people, including fisherman, mail carriers and even dogs, are then shown dropping the things they hold, which become a shattered pile of bits at their feet, as they learn that Hulu has all the things they love. Kris Jenner’s dinosaur fossil bag and Aaron Donald’s tennis racket become a pile of rubble, too. Andra Day also makes an appearance.
Throughout the commercial, several movies and shows streaming on Hulu are promoted. Among them are The United States Vs. Billie Holiday, starring Andra Day as the legendary jazz singer, Palm Springs, Nomadland, Killing Eve, Family Guy, The Great, Trolls World Tour, Love Island, The Good Doctor, Little Fires Everywhere, and more.
Hulu is known for teaming up with a host of athletes for its “Hulu Sellouts” campaign, which debuted in 2019 and highlighted that Hulu doesn’t just have live sports. The streaming service has enlisted NBA player Joel Embiid, All-Star Game team captain Giannis Antetokounmpo, Todd Gurley, and Damian Lillard aka Dame D.O.L.L.A., who dropped a track called “Hulu Doesn’t Just Have Live Sports” to highlight that the streamer also offers more than 65 live channels and a huge streaming library.
