Community Promo Is Mad Men Levels of Vague

If you love both Community and Mad Men — now there’s a Venn diagram I’d like to see — this new promo for the returning NBC comedy is for you.

Taking a cue from Mad Men auteur Matthew Weiner’s maddeningly vague, mostly meaningless “coming soon” promos, this Community trailer streams together a rapid-fire series of dialogue snippets, if not just the occasional grunt, sigh or shake of head.

    Watched it in Canada on Youtube because NBC is silly. Great trailer.

  2. M3rc Nate says:

    Genius. Love it.

  3. TV Gord says:

    I love it!…and hey…isn’t that Trudy Campbell? ;-)

  4. ScrubsGuy says:

    Is it just me or does NBC actually seem to be trying to do more promotion this year for Community? Guess with the rest of the line up not doing so great, all hopes lie with Community!

    I agree that NBC is promoting it more. I mean, really, since Sean Saves the World and the Michael J Fox show have become such enormous hits, why not throw a promotional push behind a show people actually like?

  6. Angela says:

    I definitely want to know more about the robot fight that gets mentioned :D.
    Aaaah, I can’t believe we’ve only got a little over a week to go! Can’t wait.

    That promo was NOT GREAT, BOB! Just kidding. I enjoyed it immensely. The only thing that would have made me enjoy it more would have been if I had been watching it while drinking an Old Fashioned and having an affair with my secretary.

    there is a community/mad men venn diagram, it consists of alison brie being in the crossover part and thats it.

  9. Joey says:

    Good promo. Excited to watch season premiere next Thursday.

    I don’t watch Community (I’ll probably catch up whenever it is on Netflix Streaming) but I thought this Mad Men-style promo was funny.

    Can’t wait!!
