HBO is thinking different for its Silicon Valley ad.
The key art marketing poster for Mike Judge’s new comedy about the inner-workings of tech campus playgrounds in Northern California has the show’s cast striking a familiar iconic pose. The ad has co-stars Kumail Nanjiani, T.J. Miller, Thomas Middleditch, Zach Woods and Martin Starr spoofing the look of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, with black turtlenecks and that chin-rub pose from the cover of Walter Isaacson’s biography.
Judge’s first live-action comedy series could be described as Office Space meets The Social Network and gets underway April 6 (with a premiere preview at South by Southwest on March 10).
Here’s the poster and trailer (which also includes a Jobs joke). What do you think? Insanely great?
