Periscope and Cox TV launch two new TV spots


By the minneapolis egotist / /

Cox Communications and Periscope are launching two new TV spots that send a message to retailers across cable companies and beyond: personal service and human interaction cannot be replaced by technology. 

The commercials, which deliberately highlight the value of personal contact with service experts in Cox’s retail stores, were directed by Tucker Gates, a prolific television producer and director known for his work on Homeland, X-Files, Lost and more. The director of photography is Janusz Kamiński famous for his work with Steven Spielberg on Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan.

    Did this really require an oscar-winning DP vs. supporting your local support services?

    Retail is in a sad state when a kid wants to hang out in the cable store. Advertising is in an even sadder state when an agency is evidently proud of yet another telecom campaign set in a store.

Especially with the mom–she looks exactly like a chick who dgaf about this type of Cox. she just wants to make sure her soulless little ginger demon is in bed when the Cox worker shows up to work his magic.
