This Elden Ring Ad From Thailand Is An Epic Journey
The official ad for Elden Ring in Thailand is a crazy live-action drama that also explains some of the game’s lore extremely effectively.
trailer posted Twitter user Daniel Ahmad (below) and doesn’t actually show gameplay for up to three minutes.
Instead, it first unfolds into a family drama in which Grandma’s sacred ring is destroyed, leading to turmoil in her family. Meanwhile, the prodigal son heads home, reminiscing about his childhood, which includes a surprising amount of Elden Ring references.

The “tarnished” child returns home as the family fights for pieces of the ring for themselves and saves the family from further fighting – before playing the PlayStation with grandma.
It’s a ridiculously weird reworking of Elden Ring’s own story, with several demigods claiming a broken ring. And a tarnished player coming to reclaim them and collect the Ring. Unlike the Thai ads, there are many more kills in the game.
Another trailer for the game was released yesterday, starring actress Ming-Na Wen, and it’s not even the weirdest Elden Ring stories to come out in the past few days.
The player used the Nintendo Switch’s Ring Fit controller to defeat the boss.The streamer’s Twitch chat took over control of the game while he slept, and even got his own candy.
