NHL players were among those who were disappointed by the release of the second season of “The Simpsons” in December.
The show has been a huge success for HBO, but not for all the fans of the cartoon.
That being said, the NHL has taken notice and is taking some steps to promote the upcoming seasons of the show.
One of the biggest steps is a new ad campaign for the upcoming season that’s expected to begin airing this spring.
The ad will feature hockey players and will also include some clips from the animated series.
The campaign will be available in 20 markets across North America, and will air on HBO Canada and ESPN3, the networks said.
“The Sims” was created by the company of creators Matt Groening and Trey Parker, and is based on the children’s book series “The Wonderful World of The Simpsons.”
It was first released in 1998.
It’s a great opportunity to do a new season, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said during a news conference Thursday.
“It is a great way to promote it.
We want to continue to get the attention of kids and families.
And to have our fans watching and getting involved.”
The new ad will be directed by David Aja and will feature clips from “The Smurfs” and “The Family Guy.”
