At the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Eric Feng, senior VP and chief technical officer at Hulu, said the spot will premiere Thursday night. He’ll preview the spot at his speech at the festival tomorrow, Mr. Feng told TelevisionWeek.
The new ad is part of a broader marketing campaign for Hulu that began at the Super Bowl when the site ran its first national prime-time ad, which featured Alec Baldwin of NBC’s “30 Rock.” Then in late February, Hulu ran a second prime-time spot on NBC and Fox starring “Dollhouse” star Eliza Dushku. The goal is to broaden the reach of the site and to build awareness of Hulu as a site to watch TV shows and films online, he said.
Mr. Feng also said Hulu will be experimenting with additional interactive advertising formats later this year. “It’s all about efficiency and effectiveness and we want to be an engaging place for advertisers and users,” he said.

  22. The whole stage of [logo] design shouldn’t be to show off??? what you’ll be able to do. It isn’t about bells and wh istles. It can be that form of contemplating that has lots of current designers applying gradients on each layout factor as if they had anything to do with v isual communication. The lion drawing does notneed any longer pol ishing. From wherever I stand, It will be at a point where by it might ONLY be employed or d iscarded. In case you feel it requirements more pol ishing ,that it will be too cartoony??? , or you have styl istic objections using the remedy, then maybe you??? re while in the wrong profession. You??? re complaining about one thing very essential to modern day graphic layout. I have read from a few of the greats around the subject of design and I do believe I have a handle on the subject. It is not your take care of, I understand that. What I do notunderstand is your layout philosophy. It will be popular that you believe Nike and Shell are terrific manufacturers. Maybe you??? re an International Design zealot who thinks a grid is the reply to every single style challenge. Maybe that is what you meant by pol ished? Or even you??? re into tons of pointless detail on the logo that will grow to be no ise as it is shrunken down? I do notknow.My grammar is frequently fine, thank you for asking. It will be my spelling that was off in several places and for that, I apologize, but, you know, if my grammar was anyplace near as horrible as you claim then you??? d have had a very difficult time comprehending what I wrote. There can be nothing at all so that you can react to. I do notknow about you, nevertheless it is challenging for me to get angry at gibber ish especially when I have no strategy what it means.
