Dell used the entirety of its national TV budget this week on two new ads promoting its Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming Laptop. The ads feature a young Peter Parker uninterested in what his teacher has to say during class. He is shown playing the video game "Killer Instinct" on his Dell gaming laptop where his classroom is transformed into part of the game.


The new gaming laptop was announced at CES 2017 in January and is set to be featured in the movie "Spider-Man: Homecoming." TV promotion for the computer began on June 26th just before the film’s July 7th premiere.
