Yesterday’s Variety is likely the only place we’ll ever see an ad celebrating Aquaman‘s box-office domination. That’s because the ad is fake, placed by HBO to promote its series, Entourage.
The show follows up-and-coming actor Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) who, in the world of Entourage, signed on to star in James Cameron’s big-budget Aquaman movie.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the series, now in its third season, “is avidly followed in Hollywood because of its sharp portrayal of the entertainment industry culture.” The Variety ad was a nod to Entourage‘s “insider appeal.”
