Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters gets a totally rad ’80s commercial
In the wibbly wobbly new timeline of the X-Men movies, Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters has reopened in 1983. That means young mutants once again have a place where they can fit in with their peers and learn to control their powers.
But first — Professor X needs to get the word out about his school. How to do that? With a totally rad TV commercial, of course.
Ahead of the opening of X-Men: Apocalypse, Fox has released a video in the style of an ad made in the 1980s, featuring Jubilee (Lana Condor) telling us about Charles Xavier’s school. There’s even a toll-free number at the end of the commercial you can call — with none other than Stan Lee’s voice greeting you, asking you to leave a message, and telling you to have an amazing day.
X-Men: Apocalypse opens in U.S. theaters on Friday, May 27.
