    IS hulu coming to mobile devices like my ipod touch???

  • Alice says:

    I didn’t watch the superbowl so i missed the commercial until tonight. The paridy was cute, even though insulting to the viewer (your audience), but really got turned off by Alex Baldwin. He cursed out his daughter and swore out death threats to our national leaders on late night television a few years ago. This isn’t the kind of man I would want representing such an inovative young company. It’s been six months since I checked you guys out and I must say I am impressed with your improvements. Would love it if you could block the steamy sex stuff (X-XXX) to a seperate page I can’t turn people on to this the way it is currently set-up. Keep up the great work.

    Too bad you just lost a big chunk of your viewers when you dropped Boxee support.

  • steve says:

    hey when do we get the rest of babylon 5 1 and 2 were great now i want the rest please

  • mark says:

    alec baldwin is a fn retard. and if it wasnt him id join hulu… hes a crazy hack job liberal. with absolutely no sense !!!!!!!!

  • Counsel says:


    Now that you have our brains and usage, make the video available for download in all its HD-goodness!

  • Vincent says:

    Welcome, oh great and powerful alien overlords! May your stay upon our humble planet be a pleasant one.

    As a representative of the human species I must tell you I’m afraid you may have chosen a less than ideal source of sustenance if the brains of the general television watching populace are going to be your primary food supply.

    It is with great pride that I offer my services as a diplomatic liaison between our two great peoples. Together we can build a soup of galactic unity, seasoned liberally with that enigmatic spice that we like to call; love.

    Klaatu barada nikto!

    Great AD! I still wonder how HULU chooses what to place in its overall menu. Is there some sort of a census? I’d love to see The Shadow (no small hint intended).

    Keep making more ads!

  • Bryce says:

    i freaking loved the commercial and i’ve been a long time hulu user and alec baldwin was the perfect choice i love how smug he is

  • Coveredinink says:

    This is a little random, but:

    Any chance you guys could pick up MST3K?
    I wouldn’t be surprised if you could, and I’m betting it would do extremely well on Hulu.

  • kbails84 says:

    This is am absolutely amazing site. I was surprized by its size when I saw the ad during the super bowl.
    I think a nice addition to hulu would be a time clock to show much time in shows you have spent on hulu. Since they already have profiles like a social network.

  • Alex says:

    Very impressive for such a young company to be able to advertise during super bowl. Nice Ad!

  • KD says:

    Hmm…Where do you submit comments to Hulu that are not intended to be read by the general public? Do Hulu personnel read this blog? I want to let Hulu know that they have misused the word “progenitor” in the description of the current episode of ER. They must mean proponent or promoter.

  • mitch says:

    the commercial was ok, but the name got me interested because it sounds like Chinese. by the way, hulu signifies a “magic” treasure holder in the chinese culture.
    now magic is in your name!

  • ctree says:

    what you should have warned us about it the overwhelming traffic hulu would experience after running the ads. what’s the point? more users, who can’t use the site. this buffering b.s. has got to stop!

  • sylent says:

    Ha ha! “You are a rude, thoughtless little pig!” That clip is priceless.

    Hulu really got their name out there during the superbowl. I’ve defected from TV.com for a while to try it out over here.

  • John says:

    Cannot believe they would use a jerk like Balwin. He is a total jerk of a father. Hulu went down a few notchs using him.

  • Scott says:

    So does this mean Hulu is available outside of USA? I love Hulu (and PlayOn so I get it on my TV) and everytime I point to a clip I get comments about the fact that it isn’t available eveywhere.

    Rock on.

  • Bryan says:

    Is hulu really coming to portable devices like Alec says?

  • Richard says:

    Awesome. Absolutely awesome. I was so pleasantly surprised last night when I saw this!

  • Melody says:

    My favorite commercial was for Teleflora!! The funny first part reminded me of “The Office”, but WHO WAS THAT HOT DELIVERY GUY?!! HE CAN DELIVER FLOWERS TO ME ANY DAY!!! WHEW…..

  • woot says:

    Genius guys! Love it! Give that idea-man an extra pat on the back.

  • Zach says:


  • Spadoukie says:

    Who is the girl in the beginning of the Doritos “Powere of the Crunch” ad? She is gorgeous. What other work has she done?

  • Andrew C says:

    Great spot. Good to see hulu get its name out into American households.

  • Chen says:

    That’s absolutely diabolical. I’ll be gathering a resistance to end this madness.

    …after American Dad.

  • d4 says:

    Absolutely incredible. Did not know it was coming on which was a great surprise in a great game.
