The Twitter account of Amazon’s hit animated series Invincible trolls fans by posting an unexpected Rick Roll video to highlight seasons 2 and 3.
The public relations team behind Amazon’s hit animated series, Invincible, has fun trolling fans on Twitter. The series itself is based on the comic book series of the same name, written by The walking dead creator, Robert Kirkman. In the same vein as Marvel Spider Man comics, Invincible follows the story of a high school student named Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun) as he juggles his high school life and his secret life as the titular superhero, Invincible. However, unlike (most iterations of) Spider Man, Invincible is unique in that it uses the bright colors and costumes typically associated with superheroes to mask a bloody and violent underlying narrative.
While Invincible shares many superficial similarities with other Amazon superhero series The boys, the first differs from the second by maintaining an optimistic tone reinforced by truly comforting relations between Mark and the various secondary actors of the series, in particular with his father in Superman, Omni-Man (JK Simmons). Invincible never shies away from violence, but makes sure to return to his hopeful roots as the dust settles. The formula proved to be successful enough for Amazon to renew the series for seasons 2 and 3.
Invincible‘s The Twitter account jumps into the hype of seasons 2 and 3 by mocking fans, leading them to believe they might get a glimpse of the new seasons. The account recently posted a video from a desktop computer, containing a number of files relating to the show. Two files are labeled “SEASON 2 (FULL EPISODES)” and “SEASON 3 (FULL EPISODES), “ both that the computer mouse ignores in favor of a folder called “SAME SPICY“ containing the music video for Rick Astley’s now infamous song, “Never Gonna Give You Up”. Check out the full video below:
Invincible The Twitter account has proven to have its finger on the pulse of the show’s fandom. The account frequently uses popular memes formats and viral trends, most often poking fun at Omni-Man and the various memes inspired by the Imbalanced Viltrumite. With no release date announced for Season 2, the show’s PR team is working hard to ensure that interest in the show remains high.
Invincible is one of the most unexpected TV hits of the past year, causing an overnight sensation. With a star-studded cast and an all-star writing team, the show’s success seems inevitable in hindsight. Hopefully viral stunts like this keep fans talking about the series until Amazon finally announces a release date for. Invincible season 2.
