Charter Communications isnâ€™t the most popular of service providers and you can see why. Theyâ€™ve summed up each of the three aspects of the Triple Play; phone, internet, and TV into a terribly awkward music video.
Iâ€™m pretty sure the triple play is Comcastâ€™s thing in the first place so Iâ€™m surprised itâ€™s not copyright infringement. At the very least this ad gets the message across to the viewer in a clunky and semi-annoying fashion; if you sign up for all three services, they each cost $29.99 a month. The spot supports that claim by singing Charterâ€™s phone number ending in “2-9-9-9″ in a voice that reminds me of the birthday music at a Chinese restaurant.
I find this commercial funny in all of the spotâ€™s failures because the actors are just so excited about Charter Communicationsâ€™ services. The red-head 14 seconds in goes all out with her dance moves and I canâ€™t help but laugh. So no, itâ€™s not a good commercial but I can appreciate all of its awfulness.
AD GRADE: C+
