A big part of the TV promotion for the new Star Trek movie is not coming from Paramount, but is coming from their promotional partners Burger King, Verizon and Esurance. In the last week both BK and Verizon have put up new TV ads, including a BK ad shot on the real bridge of the USS Enterprise. We have all the Star Trek promo ads below.
BK Kids Commercial
This commercial focuses on kids and promotes the toys in BK Kids Meals. It was shot on the real set of the USS Enterprise, with the help of Star Trek’s cinematographer Daniel Mindel and it also uses genuine costumes designed by Star Trek’s Michael Kaplan.
BK Kingons Commercials
There are also two commercials targeting adults, promoting the BK Star Trek collectible glasses. Both feature the ‘Kingons’
Verizon Transporter Commercial
Verizon and Nokia have just started running their own 60-second spot, this time using a transporter room which is similar to the one in the movie, but not the real commercial.
And Esurance has been running this commercial for over a month.
Playmates Toys also have their own commercial promoting their line of Star Trek toys.
