Santa Monica/Dallas-based Sugar Film Production director Chris Smith empowers couched fantasy football enthusiasts across the nation with expert aid via former NFL coach Bill Cowher and NY Giants Wide Receiver Victor Cruz in the new :30 “Giant Screen” for Time Warner Cable, out of PureGrowth, New York. The spot features Cowher and Cruz casually crashing a typical fall NFL afternoon with a disgruntled fan who is unable to access his fantasy team due to a sluggish Internet connection. The campaign also includes the :60 “Frozen” that peers in on a weighty heart-to-heart between Cower/Cruz and a disheartened fan, with the mentoring team urging the forlorn man to amp his connectivity by switching to Time Warner Cable.
The campaign also includes a spot featuring a dash of culinary star power with celebrity chef Bobby Flay, as Bill Cowher coaches a confident novice chef and Food Network addict to put Flay’s talents to the test with the Time Warner Cable iPad app in the :30, “Easier Than You Think.”
