Upside-Down NCIS: Sydney Promos Will Turn Heads — Exclusive First Look

If you’re watching NFL games on CBS this Sunday and things suddenly turn upside-down, rest assured that nothing is wrong with your TV set. It’s just CBS’ promo department being a bit of a larrikin.

TVLine can exclusively report that this Sunday, Nov. 12, CBS will intentionally air its NCIS: Sydney promo spots upside down during NFL on CBS games, tying into the “Down Under” theme of the well-watched franchise’s very first international endeavor, which was filmed on location in Australia — that’s in the southern hemisphere, for those who skipped geography class — and premieres Stateside Tuesday, Nov. 14 at 8/7c.

The first of Sunday’s topsy-turvy promos is scheduled to air during CBS Sports’ The NFL Today, and some of them will feature Sia’s “Unstoppable.”

Watch an exclusive sneak peek above, but resist the temptation to invert your laptop. (Don’t want all those Tim Tam shaking out of the keyboard. Blech.)
