We are thrust into a NASA control room-type operation at a triumphant moment--a landing on Mars, followed by a congratulatory phone call from the President of the United States. 

But the phone/communications technology fails when the President requests a video call; shortly thereafter the images break up before our eyes as the space program is disconnected from the leader of the free world.

This juxtaposition of conquering space travel to Mars but unable to make a video call underscores how our business lives, sometimes marked by remarkable accomplishments, are nonetheless riddled with outdated, glitchy tech. The answer provided in this commercial is Vonage, which is billed as an industry-leading cloud communications company for business.

Frank Todaro of Moxie Pictures directed this spot, titled “Mars Landing,” for CP+B.
