Turtles have always grossed me out. They remind me of snakes with a shell, except for these wisecracking turtles in Comcast’s latest television spot. The male turtle faints at the mere thought of the increased speed Comcast will be providing to its customers. Very delightful commercial.

The ad was created by advertising agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, San Francisco with creative direction by Chris Ford and Meaghan Oikawa. The copy was written by Jean Weisman. Stats for Luddite Turtle Ads Trending: Older & Mild
