A Spider-Man: No Way Home tie-in ad with Hyundai features a hilarious Mysterio easter egg.
Marvel Studios is no stranger to having its films participate in cross-promotional advertising, especially with car companies. The latest tie-in ad for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home sees Spidey in a desperate search for a ride. Luckily, a Hyundai with his best bud Ned in the driver’s seat pops up. Before that, Spidey has to learn a thing or two about never leaving areas without skyscrapers.
The ad begins with Peter Parker inside of a motel outside of New York as he’s watching a newscast of J. Jonah Jameson demeaning the web-slinger for being in hiding. Parker decides it’s time to clear his name and exits his room in his Spider-Man suit. Parker then throws out a web, only for it to go nowhere, as there are no tall structures nearby.
Defeated, Spidey begins to hike towards New York, singing a sullen rendition of the Spider-Man theme from the 60s. As he’s walking, he spots a scarecrow with a fishbowl on his head, which looks a lot like Mysterio. Spidey then throws a web at the Mysterio scarecrow, before a Hyundai pulls up. In it lies his friend Ned, who takes him back to the big city.
Here is the synopsis for Spider-Man: No Way Home:
“For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.”
