Universal Parks and Resorts introduced its new national ad campaign today, along with a couple of ticket discount deals for its theme parks at Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood.
The "Let Yourself Woah" campaign stars "Saturday Night Live" cast member Kenan Thompson, who got his start on television with the Nickelodeon shows "All That" and "Kenan & Kel," which were filmed in the old Nickelodeon Studios at Universal Studios Florida.
"Universal's theme parks hold a special place in my heart and it's amazing to see how much they've grown since I worked here as a teenager," Thompson said in a statement released by the resort. Thompson's 30-second TV commercial will begin airing nationwide on Monday.
But I actually like the Spanish-language campaign ever better. That one features Comedy Central star Arturo Castro.
Both commercials feature the Orlando and Hollywood parks, which is why you see Jaws in there along with familiar Orlando sites such as the Hulk coaster and Hagrid's.
The real news here for fans who already know their way around the Universal theme parks is the company's latest discount deal. Along with the launch of this national ad campaign, Universal is introducing a "two days free" deal for the Universal Orlando parks and a $30 off deal for Hollywood.
You can find both deals - along with others including combo tickets with other area attractions - on our travel partner's officially authorized Universal Orlando tickets and Universal Studios Hollywood tickets pages.Tweet
