I just saw this one on tv tonight. Interesting commercial. Maybe a sign they're prepping NuSulu for a bigger role? Probably not.
In the next movie, Sulu will appear briefly dressed only in a pair of panties and a bra.

It will be featured in all the trailers.

Takei has to be an extra saying "Oh my."

BTW, I like the floating holograms GATT was manipulating. What is it with 3D holograms on the Enterprise bridge in commercials but not the films?
Well, the commercial isn't canon, (but then again neither is the character.) Perhaps they are previewing something he will do in the next film.

I'm more than certain the commercial has nothing to do with character development or the next movie.

Anything that helps the NuCast gain more exposure for themselves and the franchise and puts a little extra money in their own pockets is a good thing.
I finally caught the commercial on TV as opposed to the OP's clip. I agree wholeheartedly with this sentiment, as well. Exposure is a good thing - and in the case of this ad, there was a good marriage of theme and product. I very much like the idea of keeping the franchise fresh in people's minds.

As neat as the new commercial is, it'll never top this:

Re: New Sulu/GATT2000 commercial

I was waiting for someone to mention that.

I actually think the TNG engine room looks better with that control desk than it did in STVI. I actually thought back to the commercial when I saw the vaguely similar control desk by the core in Into Darkness!

The odds of the next movie actually having any "character development" are pretty small.

Good commercial. Now I finally understand why GATT was in the film.
