Well played, HBO.
HBO has released a series of ads for its streaming service, and the whole set of spots attempt to drive home one message: For a lot of HBO programming, it’s really nice not to have to watch it with your parents. From the sex scenes on True Blood, to the sex scenes on Game of Thrones, to the sex scenes… well, basically, HBO has a lot of steamy programming. And if you want to continue to pretend that your parents aren’t also watching these shows, that’s your right. HBO is looking out for you.
Each of the seven ads – featuring different HBO shows – end the same way after a TMI encounter: “Might be a good time for HBO Go,” voiceover suggests. “HBO Go. The best of HBO on all your favorite devices. Far, far away from your parents.”
Check out a dad attempting to give some advice to his daughter during a cringe-worthy Adam/Hannah Girls sex scene below – and be thankful that you haven’t been there.(Right?)
