I kinda hate myself for posting this. Promotional materials for other promotional materials really cheese me off, but a large part of that ire is invoked simply by the fact that it works. Here I am, posting a commercial for another commercial, and y’know what: this commercial-for-a-commercial actually gets me excited for the commercial it’s advertising. How stupid is that?! Maybe it has something to do with the fact that it’s The Avengers, and I’ve been excited for the movie for years, but…but…it’s an ad for an ad! A trailer for a trailer! I’m such a sucker.
The Avengers comes out May 4, 2012. The trailer that’s being advertised here will air during the Super Bowl.
