Xfinity continues its “future of awesome” brand story with a new spot from Goodby Silverstein & Partners that features Gig Speed Internet. directed by O Positive’s Jim Jenkins, and lensed by cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth.

'The Joneses' heralds the arrival of Gig speed - internet so fast every customer thinks they’ve finally gotten one up on their neighbors.

The spot is 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 the 'keeping up with the Joneses' popular phrase, but the message of empowerment - and the way each successive family shown thinks they’ve won the neighborhood - is what drives the spot.
