A few days ago, Universal announced they would be giving their Facebook Fans the chance to be one of the first to see a sneak peek at their brand new TV commercial, which won’t air on television until next Monday. Those who signed up to receive e-mails from Universal Orlando would have received an e-mail earlier today with a link to their new commercial.
Yesterday we wrote an article about the direction their new commercial could possibly be taking. Erik discovered a video on Universal’s YouTube channel that was titled “I visit Universal Orlando because…”, which, compared to the new commercial, is very similar in direction. Why do you visit Universal? Because this and that is awesome. That’s why, so let’s spread the word.
From a press release released by Universal Orlando Public Relations:
“Whether it’s because of the two amazing theme parks, because of the countless, exhilarating entertainment options or because of the quality time that families and friends can spend together here, our guests enjoy coming to Universal Orlando!”
The commercial focuses heavily on Islands of Adventure, with an even more intense focus on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Looks like the park is not only trying to focus on the amazing experiences you can have at the parks, but the licenses they’ve purchased. In the commercial, The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman, Jurrassic Park River Adventure, Forbidden Journey, Ollivanders Wand Shop, and Shrek were featured. Besides Jurassic Park, which is a Universal film, all the other characters or areas mentioned are licensed through some company.
Here’s your sneak peek at Universal Orlando’s new commercial “Because”:
