In the most star-studded commercial of the night, Diddy walks around a fictionalized Time Warner Cable office telling Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Drake and MORE all about TWC’s services.
We know that, technically, the Seahawks or the Broncos are supposed to win Super Bowl XLVIII, but Time Warner Cable also kind of won for their star-studded commercial featuring Diddy, Drake, the Duck Dynasty cast and more, right?
Time Warner Cable Super Bowl Commercial Features Star-Studded Cast
There’s something for every TV fan in Time Warner Cable’s Super Bowl offering. The spot opens with Stephen Moyer as vampire Bill Compton going to town on some young lady’s carotid artery and then continues as Diddy leads Stephen’s True Blood co-star Anna Paquin on a tour around a fictionalized TWC office.
Along the way, we meet Jimmy Fallon, the Duck Dynasty cast, Victor Cruz — wide receiver for the New York Giants — and even rapper Drake! And for those of you out there watching Ray Donovan (you are out there, right?), Liev Shreiber and Jon Voight make an appearance, as well.
Time Warner Cable Customers In Southern California Experience Super Bowl Blackout
Now, this may have been a fun commercial, but nothing beats the incredible irony of the fact that this spot aired not long after Time Warner Cable customers in Southern California experienced an hour-long blackout on FOX — during the Super Bowl! Whoops!
TWC customers were emphatically not happy, and who can blame them? A commercial promising faster, better internet and cable on all devices airing shortly after the blackout was just the icing on the ironic cake for these unhappy campers.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Did you enjoy the commercial? Are you one of the unlucky few who experienced the blackout? Be sure to vote and tell us your thoughts below!
