Mekanism Celebrates Mother's Day For HBO
HBO comedies are known for having some of the most memorable, comical and colorful lines of dialogue. Fans love them, but imagine what it’s like to hear those lines coming from the mouth of your beloved child every week. In this Mother’s Day promo spot, HBO gives the mothers of several HBO stars their moment, letting them read some uncomfortable lines they’ve listened to their kids say over the years and capturing their awkward reactions. The piece ends with the punchline, “There’s only one line your mom wants to hear today” followed by the stars themselves wishing their mother’s Happy Mother’s Day.
The spot starts running on Friday (5/12) on HBO, YouTube and HBO Social Channels.
Mothers featured in the video include: Divorce star Sarah Jessica Parker’s mom, Barbara; Crashing star Pete Holmes’s mom, Irena; Vice Principals star Danny McBride’s mom, Kathy; Insecure star Issa Rae’s mom, Delyna; Ballers star Rob Corddry’s mom, Robin; and Veep star Tony Hale’s mom, Rita.
