I’m not sure if this is airing on television – I think I caught this on the web – but this has to be one of the strangest commercials I’ve ever seen! NBC is promoting the Winter Olympics (which it is broadcasting), with a tie in with the next upcoming ‘Jurassic Park’ series of films:
“Olympian Nathan Chen is greeted by dinosaurs from Jurassic World Dominion, in theaters worldwide June 10.”
There’s really no connection between the Winter Olympics and the Jurassic Park films at all. I do like the majestic soundtrack playing with Chen skating, but I find it really bizarre that Chen is skating and then sees these dinosaurs and then the dinosaurs running away. I have to say that the commercial did its job – I clearly remember that there is a Jurassic World Dominion coming out in June, which is the 6th film in the franchise.
The Winter Olympics begins today with Curling and Luge, with the Opening Ceremonies on Friday February 4.
