LG Electronics has enlisted Liam Neeson to help promote its OLED TV in the brand’s first-ever Super Bowl ad.

Made to look like a trailer for one of Neeson’s action/thriller films, LG’s teaser ad was produced by RSA Films and is only 15 seconds in length — just long enough to introduce Neeson as “The Man from the Future.”

According to LG’s website, more “trailers” and behind-the-scenes footage will be launched prior to game day.

The campaign also includes an #OLEDisHere Sweepstakes that is being played out on Twitter.

Participants must follow @LGUS and post a tweet with the hashtags #OLEDisHere and #Sweepstakes between now and February 6 for a chance to win an LG OLED TV.
