GALLERY 16: Ultimate TV - PEVR

Gentlemen; how do you watch your favourite sport and talk to your girl simultaneously - without missing a critical moment? You install Ultimate TV which digitally records satellite television. This way you get to watch what you want when you want - and keep her happy. The comedic acronym 'PEVR' is used in this spot to demonstrate how the product fits into everyday life, with an off-the-wall Kojak-like character commentating. Great casting and performances makes this technology appealing and relevant.
