AT&T has just released a new Westworld-centric 30-second commercial for its ‘Unlimited Plus’ phone plan.
The spot, which stars Mark Wahlberg and his delightful Boston accent, begins with the actor walking out of a present-day coffee shop. We then find ourselves across the street from the Ted 2 star as a slew of vehicles, both ground and air-based, zoom past the frame, the last of which is a stagecoach and horses.
After Wahlberg throws a few punches at some very android-looking robots, the commercial cuts to him walking on the beach through a field of affectionate couples all posed very similarly. While unconfirmed, one could make the argument that this shot is meant to copy how Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Teddy (James Marsden) end up after Dr. Ford (Anthony Hopkins) freezes the duo on the beach during the demonstration of his new narrative in the season one finale.
Wahlberg lastly finds himself back in a coffee shop, at which point Teddy walks in with a few choice words. Their interaction isn’t worth spoiling, so go ahead and check out the full commercial here:
