Charter Promises Great TV and Internet at the Most Comically Unlikely Times Fast service for 'serious' business

A quartet of ads for Charter Communications' Spectrum package promise fast and convenient Internet service, and HD television for everyone ... no matter how bedridden, ambitious, desperate or determined to watch football you may be. 

The first spot, "She Shed"—where men are forced out of their man caves and relegated to watching football in what looks like a huge dollhouse—highlights Spectrum's TV App.



"Pony Party" claims Spectrum's Internet is fast enough to order a llama from a petting zoo and dress it like a last-minute pony for your daughter's birthday. 



"Serious Business" shows how Spectrum Business benefits a company that makes diminutive dog hats. 



Finally, "Body Cast" notes that Spectrum's selection of HD channels is perfect for that everyday, totally relatable situation where you break every bone in your body in an attempt to go viral with skateboard stunts. 



Created by Saatchi & Saatchi New York, all four ads are quick and clever, and each premise connects solidly with both the Charter brand and the specific product being sold. (Also, it turns out that "she shed" is actually a thing people say. We weep for this planet.)
