Adweek responsive video player used on /video. In February, the Valets turned their attention to airplane thriller Non-Stop, creating a clever native ad that has gone viral gold, generating more than 1.9 million views on YouTube. “We probably wouldn't be throwing the Valets at essentially a promotional opportunity, except for the fact they got 'Liam Neesons' to do it,” Peele said during a Comic-Con event, referencing the duo's mispronunciation of the actor's name. “Also, Non-Stop ended up being a cool movie.” “(Liam Neeson) came around the corner with his saucer and his tea cup, and I thought ‘This is going to be a great day!’” Key added. Taking full advantage that they got the Irish actor to star in the ad, Key and Peele reenact several key scenes from the movie's trailer in front of Neeson.
