Virtual reality isn’t just for video games anymore. It’s been used to explore war zones and bring company to sick kids. Now Facebook is pushing its Oculus Go VR headset as the ultimate in immersive viewing. The holiday campaign from Anomaly L.A. features Wiz Khalifa, Jonah Hill, Adam Levine, Leslie Jones and Awkwafina, all engrossed in their content of choice.

Hill and Levine, though far apart, take in a courtside basketball game together by co-watching it, complete with digital avatars. They also get nostalgic about "Stand By Me," to the chagrin of their partners. Khalifa ignores a party raging all around to watch his own concert from the comfort of his couch. Awkwafina steps into the dystopian world of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and Jones indulges her romantic side by watching “The Shape of Water” in the tub.

A 60-second anthem spot combines each of the stories, while individual tales will be spun out into short vignettes. The campaign is running on U.S. broadcast networks through the end of the year.
