Amazon’s latest “Seven on Seven” ad promoting The Boys season 3 transforms Vought into Disney, complete with different corporate moves and updates on supes like A-Train.
Though there are a number of superhero movies and television shows available today, few are as current and as sharp-witted as The Boys. With the debut of its second season last year, Amazon’s satirical take on superhero culture reached new heights, lambasting everything from white supremacy to Scientology. The Boys received a stunning number of Emmy nods, including one for best drama, to round off their successful run.
Vought Streaming Service & Theme Park Revealed
Amazon has discovered unique ways to promote The Boys season 3 while fans wait for an official release date, in an attempt to expand on season 2’s incredible popularity.
Early glimpses of new superheroes such as Crimson Countess (Laurie Holden) and Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) have been revealed, while The Boys’ fictional firm Vought has grown in social media presence. The monthly “Seven on 7” films put out by Vought News, which have given hints as to what the story for The Boys season 3 will be, have been maybe the most intriguing piece of marketing.
Vought International now resembles several real-life corporations, according to the November edition of “Seven on 7.” The video features an ad for the VoughtLand theme park, which makes a clear reference to Disney World, as well as a piece about the streaming service Vought+. A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) makes an appearance in a news conference on the cancellation of his upcoming race, and host Cameron Coleman (Matthew Edison) has some harsh words for superhumans suing Vought for non-consensual exposure to Compound V.

The Boys has hinted at how big of a corporation Vought is in its fictional world over its first two seasons, but the monthly “Seven on 7” films have taken things a step further. Vought has come to represent real-world corporations such as Disney and Fox News, and it’s both humorous and alarming to witness how far its power extends in the Boys universe. Season 3 will be interesting (and probably horrifying) to see how it develops.
