Hulu has released its first trailer for This Fool on July 24, 2022. A second official trailer was released on August 4. Both trailers show the relationships and tensions that underpin the show’s comedy. From Julio’s martyr complex and his tendency to not confront fault to his fraught past with Luis and his attempts to make things work with his girlfriend Maggie, the building blocks of humor and relationships of the series were on display in the trailer.
The show clearly has plenty of action and story in addition to the jokes as scenes of Julio’s attempts to change his extremely non-confrontational nature and become more assertive are shown, with mixed results. (It looks like Julio shares his actor’s tendency to lose fights.) The trailer also shows the genuine passion and concern for helping people that Julio brings to his job and explains why Julio chooses to avoid conflict. .
