Meta Quest, a company offering VR headsets, has released its Super Bowl commercial.
The film, titled “Old Friends. New Fun.” tells the story of Howl’n Harry, the leader of animatronic band Cometeers that used to perform in a place called Questy’s, which has been closed. After being taken and used by various people for all kinds of purposes, he lost touch with his old friends and almost got destroyed. Luckily, one woman saved him and took him to a building where he was introduced, one day, to the innovative technology of Meta Quest. He put on the Quest 2 VR headset and reconnected with his fellows.
The song used in the ad, played by Howl’n Harry’s band in the opening of the video and at the end, is Simple Minds‘ iconic single “Don’t You Forget About Me”. The legendary band will perform a postgame afterparty concert in VR on its Horizon Venues virtual event platform.
“Don’t You Forget About Me” is available for purchase on Amazon for $0.69.
