XFINITY continues its “future of awesome” brand story with this spot from Goodby Silverstein & Partners (GS&P) that features Gig Speed Internet. Directed by O Positive’s Jim Jenkins and lensed by cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth, the ad has family after family happy that their Internet speed has them keeping up with, if not exceeding, the proverbial next door neighbor, The Joneses. 

Titled “The Joneses,” the commercial, said GS&P creative director Jens Waernes, “is really about people discovering a new power--of an entire neighborhood getting wrapped up in a game of who has the fastest network. It’s a fun story built around a known expression (“keeping up with the Joneses”). But the message of empowerment--and the way each successive family shown thinks they’ve won the neighborhood--is really what drives the humor.”
