The Oscars will take place in Cinderella's castle, which will be flown in from outer space

Posted on

ABC’s recent Oscars promo is a bit more ambitious in scope than is really necessary. It’s about four commercials for completely different things. How will the aliens who can see it from space know exactly what they’re tuning in for?!

The spot seems to endorse:

1) Swanky new international airline with giant planes, all named Oscar
2) B-movie about earth-tingling red carpet disaster
3) Renowned nonagenarian hairstylist to the stars (“One man has delivered magical moments for over 80 years…”)
4) Disney cartoon ball that’s kind of low-budge but still very sparkly

Who is this mysterious “Oscar” guy? Anyone?
