Cox Communications, the nation’s third largest cable provider, this month launches a new effort called 'Epic Battle.

The effort, by the Chicago office of Interpublic Group’s FCB, highlights 'Xtras,' a group of upgrades offered by Cox which give customers more entertainment for just $5 per month. This new effort is a continuation of the marketer’s larger 'Everything is better with Xtras' campaign.

In the spot, two medieval armies are preparing to face off in battle. The one side charges and the other prepares to defend. After a short charge, we see that the approaching horde is really just a couple of guys in a field. The tag states, "Battle scenes are better with extras."

The spot was directed by Paul Middleditch with DP Tom Sigel. 'Epic Battle' is running in key Cox markets, including Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Diego, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Providence and Roanoke.
