No matter how ordinary you are, Avenue 5 has everything you need to set sail on a luxury intergalactic adventure.

That’s according to the new tongue-in-cheek spot for HBO’s new comedy from Veep creator Armando Iannucci.

In the faux commercial, Herman Judd (Josh Gad), founder of the titular space cruise ship, walks us through the many benefits of “the Judd Galaxy space experience.” And don’t mind that there’s only Fyre Festival-like stock footage, Judd ensures.

“Our ship will be better than this, which is why it’s not completed at the time of this recording,” he says. Seems fishy.

Set 40 years in the future, the series follows Ryan Clark (Hugh Laurie) who must protect the ship and its uppity passengers as technical difficulties arise.

Avenue 5 premieres Sunday, Jan. 19 at 10 p.m. on HBO.
