Spider-Man 2 has received some excellent marketing stunts, with the latest blowing Australian fans away.
After a long wait, Spider-Man 2 is finally here. Insomniac Games’ latest title has smashed all expectations, as Peter Parker and Miles Morales team up to battle Kraven the Hunter and Venom.
Spider-Man 2 is arguably Sony’s biggest game of 2023, and with that came very creative marketing strategies. Just a few weeks ago, 3D billboards lit up the streets of New York, and it’s hard to forget the infamous Venom statue tweet.Article continues after ad

Australian Spider-Man 2 ad might cause a double take
Set up in Sydney, Australia, a truck plastered with the game’s advertising can be seen in a rather horrific accident. Face down and smashed, the back of the truck is suspended by webs from both Spider-Man and Venom.
“Ok that’s sick,” replied one user, which basically summed up every users response. It’s not often you see a stunt on a scale such as this.Sign up to Dexerto for free and receive:Fewer Ads|Dark Mode|Deals in Gaming, TV and Movies, and TechArticle continues after ad
Others had fun with the ad “I can hear JJJ calling Spidey a menace for vandalizing a truck that was already out promoting his image, leaving it in the streets for the city to clean up.”Article continues after ad
It’s incredible to see how creative ads for upcoming titles have become. Blizzard Entertainment has been good at this, if you don’t count one poorly worded billboard.
Or perhaps, this isn’t an ad, but an actual accident. “Nah, that truck actually crashed, Australia is just full of spiders,” another commented.Article continues after ad
Safe to say, this ad went well with the fans.
