Bruce Willis As John McClane in Die Hard Battery Commercial

Die Hard ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️½ just doesn’t get old with repeated rewatchings. It’s so well done, Bruce Willis’ character is perfectly cast, the story is very good, Hans Gruber is a great villain, and then there’s the whole “Yippie Ky ehhh …” Among the best action taglines, right up there with “I’ll be back” in Terminator.

Old news here, but new to us. We don’t watch many commercials because the only ads we see are when we watch them on ad-supported Hulu, FREE streaming channels and the extremely rare live TV show.

This Diehard battery commercial came out in October 2020. It’s really clever.

“I’ve never done any sort of commercial with the John McClane character, but Advance Auto Parts brought an idea to integrate DieHard the battery into the Die Hard story through a short film that’s authentic to McClane and both brands,” said Willis in a statement. “Advance approached this like a motion picture – the script is clever, the production intense and the spot is entertaining. This is what Die Hard fans expect. I think they will dig the DieHard –Die Hard mashup.”

Tonight, on Hulu the commercial just kept replaying the commercial. Love it. Some movies are just perfect for products.

It makes so much sense that I don’t know why this has been branding from the beginning. Maybe it has and that was missed too.

Any other clever commercials with movie and product tie-ins that you can recommend?
