HBO GO’s Campaign Brings You Awkward Parent TV Moments

HBO GO has recently launched a new ad campaign that brings you hilarious awkward parent – children TV watching moments.


What is the HBO GO Ad Campaign All About?

You can use HBO GO on your laptop, tablet or smartphone to watch any HBO show you want, any time you want.

HBO GO has come up with an amazingly funny and recognizable ad campaign that hits the nail right on the head.

Ever have had to awkwardly watch a sex scene during an episode of your favorite TV show, with your parents sitting on the couch right next to you when you were younger? Followed by them commenting on what you just witnessed together? Yes? Well, so have I.

HBO GO brings you the following awkward moments we can all relate to:

And my personal favorite during True Blood:

Cue HBO GO. HBO permits youngsters to watch those HBO TV shows in their own time, without their parents watching along with them. Problem solved!

Watch all the ads here.

My Opinion

As I said before, this campaign hits the nail right on the head. These moments, accompanied by parents who always know how to make you uncomfortable, will probably be relatable for pretty much anyone.

Plus, they’re funny as hell. Teens all over the world whose parents have an HBO subscription will be flocking to their rooms and laptops to watch the nakedness of Girls, Game of Thrones, and True Blood on HBO GO. By themselves.

What Do You Think?
Did HBO GO do a good job or what?! Let us know in the comments below.
