Since the first season of The Strain their viral marketing campaign has been on point. Whether it be their colourful or controversial posters or confusing short videos, they’ve been a joy to watch. Every year I look forward to their marketing campaign and this year they promise to please. Join the Strigoi is a short infomercial staring our favourite German vampire Eichorst.
I love how cheesy this video is. I love the cheap late night infomercial aesthetic. But most of all I love just how happy Richard Sammel is goofing off. If ever there was an actor who clearly loved his job it’s Sammel. This isn’t the first time he’s done a silly video to promote The Strain, way back for comic con for season two The Strain released a video where Sammel’s character puts up his spare room on Air bnb.
The Strain Season Three starts August 28th on FX
