David Shane Deals Comedy Hand In Spectrum's "Poker" For Something Different
This comedy commercial for cable provider Spectrum features four evil pals--Death, a Werewolf, a Mummy and a Mad Scientist--enjoying poker night over a baseball game at Demon’s house. We observe the monsters’ easy camaraderie until Werewolf asks Demon to pause the game so he can go outside. Unfortunately something unthinkably evil ensues—Demon’s DirecTV NOW can’t pause TV, like Spectrum can—and someone will have to pay.
Directed by O Positive’s David Shane for agency Something Different, “Poker” is of the four spots to launch in the agency’s new campaign for Charter Communications’ Spectrum brand. The campaign centers on gripes that provoke customer loathing like deceptive pricing, service interruptions and a lack of channels and features.
