Trask Industries Sends Sentinels to Creep On Your Family In Days of Future Past Viral Video

In case you missed the news, at SDCC it was confirmed that Peter Dinklage‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past character is indeed Bolivar Trask, creator of the mutant-hunting Sentinels. And then yesterday the Trask Industries website, featuring Dinklage with some wicked ’70s facial hair, went live. The viral campaign continues with the above Trask Industries commercial. Never has a soft-lit, family-friendly ad turned so ominous, so fast.

    That was so cool. It’s like the perfect blend of super generic adverts right up until the end.

    it’s cool till you end up having to explain to the neighbors why their son ended up dead after he came over for dinner.

    I don’t know. I liked it right up until the end actually. It looks very real and then they couldn’t resist adding that shot of the sentinel looking threatening and that takes you totally out of the “good for you” company ad.
