Black Panther may be (rightfully) stealing a lot of the spotlight from game four of the NBA Finals last Friday (at least for us nerds), but they weren’t the only Marvel property to take advantage of the NBA. Over the course of the past few weeks, Spider-Man: Homecoming has been releasing of series of ads, wherein Spider-Man desperately tries to make it to Tony Stark’s viewing party. Now, KinoCheck has taken all the separate ads and cut them together to make one mondo ad.

The videos themselves are fun, silly, and seem indicative of what to expect from the film itself in terms of tone. However, before there’s any confusion, it’s worth mentioning that no, these are not scenes pulled from the film, but rather an original story and original footage for the ad itself. You can pretty much make your own judgment from there if that makes the video less or more charming.

I found the video to be funny and charming, and made me hope that they continue to use Happy Hogan extensively in the film itself. With the Marvel Cinematic Universe constantly expanding outward, someone like Happy seemed destined to get phased out. As such, it’s nice to see him sticking around in some capacity.

The official synopsis for Spider-Man: Homecoming is below:

“Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine — distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighborhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear.”
