Jon Hamm doesn’t like to be left out, especially if Hollywood’s boarding the Apple train without him … which he made perfectly clear in an ad that would make Don Draper blush.
The smooth-talking actor is featured in a new campaign from Apple TV+ that made its debut this weekend during primetime NFL playoff coverage — and the consensus seems to be … damn, that was a good spot. Even more illuminating … JH is pretty freaking funny!!!
Check it out … the commercial shows Jon hanging out at home on the couch and surfing through Apple TV+’s many offerings — with Jon scoffing at the fact that there’s all these celebs plastered on the screen, but no sign of him anywhere.
He then asks the camera … “Hey, Apple — did I do something to offend you?” He goes on to pitch himself as someone worthy of a show or movie, like all his famous pals seem to have these days, and even makes a fake phone call to Tom Hanks … which is hilarious.
Apple hits the point home … they’ve got all the stars on their roster — except one, that is. Of course, by hiring him for the ad, they nabbed their man in the end after all. Clever, clever.
Like we said, the commercial’s a big hit and even went viral Saturday … with many saying it was Super Bowl worthy, even though the game is still weeks away. And as for Jon’s comedic chops — well, that sorta took people aback as well … since he’s a big drama (genre) guy.
Of course, if you watch ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ … you know what’s up.
