On August 2nd, DIRECTV became a new company comprising all of AT&T’s previously held U.S. video assets. A new overall look and feel introduced for DIRECTV is reflected in this first-ever advertising campaign for DIRECTV Stream, formally AT&T TV. Launched on social platforms and national TV, the “Get Your TV Together” campaign features tennis champion, and superstar Serena Williams mashed up with iconic films to bring to life the brand’s core features of having the best of both worlds--live and on-demand entertainment. The campaign tackles the fragmented consumer experience today where they are left having to sacrifice either their live viewing experience or spend time browsing on-demand without enjoying their content.

Developed in partnership with creative agency TBWA\Chiat\Day LA, the creative platform is a call to consumers to un-complicate their entertainment lives.  The mesh of live entertainment with on-demand fare reaches new heights in this "Wonder" commercial--directed by Traktor via production house Stink--in which a viewer shifts back and forth between Williams in a tennis match and the movie Wonder Woman 1984, yielding a Williams/Wonder Woman mashup hero combating evil tennis ball-spewing machines threatening to take over a giant mall. With racket in hand, Williams is up to the heroic task of saving shoppers and shopping.
