The commercial is set to air during Super Bowl LVI on Tuesday (25 January).
In the ad, both actors play themselves at a high school reunion where the award for “Most Admired Alum” is about to be announced.
Kunis and Moore, who have no idea of each other’s presence at the venue, stand up and start walking towards the stage as they’re sure they’ll win the award.
As soon as they see each other, a shocked Kunis asks Moore: “What are you doing here?”
As they share the stage awkwardly, Moore tells Kunis: “I had no idea we went to the same high school.”
Kunis responded by saying: “We have a lot in common,” referring to both actors’ shared history with Kutcher, whom Kunis married in 2015.
Moore and Kutcher got married in 2005. They announced their split eight years later, in 2013.
Kunis told ET Online that she and Moore did actually go to the same high school in Los Angeles.
“It was during my first collaboration meeting with AT&T that we discovered Demi was also a Fairfax High alum,” she said. “I thought it would bring humour and laughs to what was already a great ad. I reached out to her and was so delighted she jumped on board.”
Moore added: “Who knew being a Fairfax alum would have brought this unexpected opportunity, to come together with Mila in such a fun and playful way?”
Moore and Kutcher have remained on good terms after their divorce. In fact, in 2018, Kunis defended Kutcher’s marriage to Moore during her appearance on the WTF With Marc Maron podcast, insisting they had a “normal, real relationship”.
“They had three kids they were raising,” she said, adding that Kutcher still keeps in touch with Moore’s daughters.
