Donald Glover Wakes Up Again And Again And Again In New "Atlanta" Trailer

With Donald Glover‘s Atlanta making its way to television on September 6, there’s been a steady release of teaser trailers to keep fans curious about the forthcoming TV series. Now another trailer has dropped and well, let’s just say it’s most likely to leave you with more questions than answers.

The 45-second clip is just a sequence of Glover waking up in different places with different people. First, he’s woken up by a baby; then by a group of friends; and then some guy (maybe his character’s father?) hitting his bed with a vacuum. The most amusing one might very well be the last one, where Glover appears from underneath a bottom bunk bed and looks at the top one to see a couple sleeping together. He looks as if he has no idea how he got there, with the final seconds of the scene playing backwards (similar to previous promo clips).

Like I said the trailer will leave you with questions. Here’s some of ours.

  1. Does Glover actually have a kid in the TV series? Were all of these snippets representative of different parts of his character’s life?
  2. Who’s the girl in the destroyed hotel room scene? Why is there a gnome on the floor? Does Glover’s character like “Gnome” play?
  3. How does Glover end up in all these places?

Maybe there’s some sort of Fight Club plot going on, where when Glover sleeps some self made alter ego takes over. Regardless, this definitely adds to our anticipation for the FX series. Before this all we’ve really received were a bunch of even shorter teasers, where we see Glover walking throughout different parts of Atlanta backwards. But what we do know is this: Glover plays Earnest “Earn” Marks and is trying to make his way up through the Atlanta rap scene alongside his cousin. Hopefully we’ll get a better understanding of the show when it starts, although we might not. He did describe Atlanta as “hip-hop’s Twin Peaks,” and if you’ve watched that show then you know that Atlanta might be confusing and surreal in the best ways possible.
