Saatchi & Saatchi has a new campaign for Charter Communications, touting its high-speed Spectrum network with a series of new spots.
In the 60-second spot at the center of the campaign, a couple is inspired by a cooking show to buy a live octopus. But when faced with the prospect of actually cooking the octopus, the creature wraps its tentacle around the man’s hand and he runs for the bathroom. “It’s funny how seeing a clearer picture can lead you to see the bigger one,” the voiceover says over soft piano music, and the woman changes gear from looking up a recipe to looking for caring for a pet octopus. It’s kind of cute and funny, and certainly more memorable than most ads in the category.
Saatchi and Saatchi’s campaign also includes a couple of 30-second spots, taking on the more commonplace situations of a father helping his son with a science project and another father who can’t seem to get his infant to stop crying.
