Super Bowl Ad for “Hot Tub Time Machine 2” Trolls Patriots with Gratuitous Balls Joke (Video)
Chances are you’re getting a little tired of “deflategate” and all the jokes about balls. However, the folks at Paramount Studios are betting you can handle at least one more good balls joke. Because they’ve made a Super Bowl ad for the upcoming Hot Tub Time Machine 2, and it trolls the Patriots and their unfortunate ball situation pretty hard.
Not surprisingly, the ad doesn’t really do a whole lot to illuminate the premise of the film. It kind of operates under the assumption that its target audience—i.e. people who have already seen the first Hot Tub Time Machine—doesn’t need much exposition. So instead the 15-second spot just goes for the jugular. The character played by Rob Corddry steps out of the hot tub time machine vortex dressed like a soldier from the Revolutionary War. The characters played by Craig Robinson and Clark Duke make fun of him. Then the voiceover guy cracks a joke about properly inflated balls, and you cut to a shot of Adam Scott‘s balls blowing up like balloons.
Take a look:
If you liked that and want to see more, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 hits theaters February 20.
