Stan recently launched a (hilarious) new ad campaign which includes releasing a promo video set to the famous 80’s track “Hungry Eyes.” The ad follows a visitor from that decade who is baffled by the amount of viewing options we have when it comes to streaming in 2017.
Since owning a VHS player was considered a big deal back in the ‘80s, it’s natural for a visitor from those days to be amazed by the entertainment opportunities available today. This is the premise of the most recent Stan ad, starring Perth comedian Shane Adamczak. Watch it below.
As you can see, Adamczak is amazed by Stan’s lineup, and his hungry eyes push him to hilarious efforts to get his Stan fix. And while you might not be tempted to slide under a bathroom stall to see what Stan is all about, you might want to trial the service, especially since it’s rolling out a new original series in August.
The new Stan original show is titled The Other Guy and it tells the story of a successful radio host (Matt Okine) who finds himself unexpectedly back in the dating pool for the first time in a decade. All episodes will premiere August 17. According to Stan, the series is a funny, raw, and poignant look at break-ups in the modern age and the harsh reality of recovering from heartbreak.
Other August highlights on Stan include The Last Ship Season 4, Dice Season 2, Swedish Dicks Season 1, and Regular Show Season 8, Part 2. As for continuing series, tune in to keep up with Twin Peaks, Preacher, I’m Dying Up Here, Power, and Younger.
Stan recently upped its prices, so subscribers now have to pay $12/month for a HD experience. The entry point remains at $10/month, but this only buys you access to titles in SD. You can compare more streaming services here.
