Dave Chappelle Visiting “Stranger Things” is Still The Best Commercial of 2017 So Far

Dave Chappelle pays a visit to “Stranger Things” in the Netflix comedy promo. The clip is the answer to the question that has been created by the “Netflix Is a Joke” billboards. The mystery has finally been solved and here is what we know. Is Chappelle really crashing the show or is this some outrageous publicity stunt? Come on, this is Dave Chappelle, and practically everything he does is downright hilarious. Here is what the fuss is all about.

It’s been a big draw for a standup comedy routine

The billboards were props that were set out to draw people in for a funny all-star trailer that has some of the funniest comedians in the business making their contributions. It happened during the broadcast of the Emmy’s on Sunday. The Netflix trailer features all of the big stars who have deals with the Netflix streaming service in a hilarious trailer that pokes fun at all of the original series coming down the Netflix pike.

An interesting new approach to advertising

The way that these ads were designed is sheer genius. We all enjoy seeing something new in standup comedy because the same old routines can become boring, well, maybe not in the case of Dave Chappelle, but anyway, comedians know that if they want to be successful, they will change up the materials now and then, and bring the audiences something new and interesting. Well, advertising and promotion is no different. The billboards and recently released trailer are definitely something different and new. The strategy is intended to get everybody’s attention and guess what? It worked!

Who’s appearing in the trailer with Dave?

Dave Chappelle is joined by Ellen DeGeneres, Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock. Kevin Spacey who is portraying Frank Underwood is speaking, it is none other than Jerry Seinfeld who comes crashing through the party and as politely as he can muster, asks if he will stop speaking “so much” to the camera. He’s letting him know that his approach is confrontational and a little heavy, and he’s just asking him if he can lighten things up a little. Immediately afterwards, it’s Dave Chappelle who delivers a confrontation to the kids from “Stranger Things” just before they break into a computer lab. Chapelle doesn’t turn them in for their illegal activities, instead he uses their technological expertise to get the kids to erase his cookies.

Great teasers

These were just a few teasers to help prepare us for the stand-up comedy acts that will be available from Netflix on their streaming service. It’s a great way to promote the service as well as the new materials that the performers are going to be presenting. In the trailer, the comedians are doing what they do best, and that is poking fun at the minorly annoying habits of some of the characters that we see on popular television shows and movies. They’re just prepping us for what is to come later, and for this, we’re thankful because the country could use some good humor these days.
