Comcast recently released a commercial showcasing its Xfinity internet service. The advertisement features actor Ed Helms, boxer Evander Holyfield, and content creator FaZe Swagg.
The company promises "unbeatable" quickness, connectivity, and internet security in the star-studded teaser. In the easygoing commercial, you can see Helms riding a cheetah, comparing the Xfinity Internet speed to cheetah-fast speeds.
The unparalleled connectivity that allows 100 devices to connect simultaneously is compared to monster-slaying bandwidth and superior security. The advantageous features of Comcast wifi enable Helms to act as many of the characters he plays in films in this commercial.
"America's favorite best friend, Ed Helms, perfectly embodies the spirit of supersonic WiFi and how with Xfinity Internet, anyone can be unbeatable. We thought let's put our Supersonic WiFi in the hands of a relatable guy like Ed," said Sophie Ahmad, executive vice-president at Comcast Cable.
