Hulu’s latest spot in its “Sellouts” campaign pokes fun at the cheesiness that often comes along with kids’ cereal ads.

The animated, 30-second ad features Charlotte Hornets player LaMelo Ball, hawking his fictional cereal LaMelO’s.

It’s the second Hulu spot with Ball. The first, which debuted in April, showed a brief animated ad-within-an-ad for the cereal before cutting to the point guard, eating his cereal.

The latest ad launched last week and features the full-length animated ad glimpsed in the original spot.
