The YouTube account of Mountain Dew U.K. has released two online advertisements today featuring StarKid’s Joe Walker and Joe Moses.

We’re not sure if Mountain Dew was aware in advance that the stars of its new commercials have a gigantic online following, but that fact sure isn’t going to hurt the campaign. Watch the videos below!


We loved this comment from user claystripe6514 on one of the videos: “Advertising 101: Instead of providing your audience with actual facts about your product, make them associate it with awesome things so that they will feel awesome by buying it. And, let’s face it, you can’t get much more awesome than Joe Walker saving a kitten from a flaming building.”

We think that sums things up pretty nicely. We shall wait to see whether these ads for Mountain Dew’s new energy drink make it onto television, and if Mountain Dew becomes the new Red Vines for the StarKid fandom!

    It didnt sound like JoMo to me in the first commercial but this is great!

    Yay! It’s so great to see the StarKids breaking out in one way or another.

    Well, that’s one way to get me to finally get a Hypable account! Thanks for including my comment, Natalie. I really hope these end up on TV so I can smugly tell my friends how I was fans of the guys in a Mountain Due commercial BEFORE it was cool. :P

    Only those two could make the douche bag types from Mountain Dew commercials actually seem endearing :D

    To be honest I giggled over the fact that the third guy is wearing a sweatband in the second ad. *wipes tear* :’) the Starkid boys are moving on up!

    How cool would it be to see Starkid on the TV!

    That’s an awesome commercial! I loved seeing Joe Walker and Joe Moses w/o all the makeup acting like normal (or as normal as two Starkids can get) guys trying to get something they wanted. >.<

    Personally, I love that they didn’t use the “Dobermans are mean and dangerous dogs” cliché. And it’s always great to see StarKids doing new things.

    Dude, I bought Pepsi Max just because of Richard Speight Jr., you know I’ll try to find Mountain Dew in Sweden somehow… JUST for our StarKids! (such a sucker for marketing, I don’t even deny it….. :P)
