So! Canada didn’t get to see the new “The Handmaid’s Tale” season three teaser when it aired during the
Super Bowl Patriots Show, which is just blasphemy because our people wrote that book, it’s ours and the series is shot in Toronto. I feel very entitled to see the ad first because I love that show and I’ve had to detour my dog’s route to avoid the set trucks when I walk him through the University of Toronto campus (which I’m not allowed to do and this only actually happened once).
For all eight of you who didn’t illegally stream the American broadcast (FU big comm), here’s the gem in all its glory. Except! There’s no date. However, the last two seasons have been spring babies. Imagine a Game of Thrones and Handmaid’s Tale April? Yeah, sex is cool but not when there’s rich women stealing poor women’s babies and aunt/nephew sex.
For those of you who like history/context/still reading, the ad makes reference former U.S. President Ronald Reagan’s 1984 campaign video.
Hulu’s Chief Marketing Officer Kelly Campbell says the ad reflects the relationship between the people in charge and and the people who aren’t, “which happens to reflect conversations taking place in today’s environment.”
