Ad of the Day: Peter Dinklage takes a starring role in cinematic Cisco spot

Peter Dinklage is perhaps best known for his role as Game of Thrones' intelligent and witty tactician Tyrion Lannister, but Cisco has recruited the actor to take on a very different role in its latest spot.


Dinklage fronts the cinematic spot for Cisco

The brand's 'The Network. Intuitive. Explained' ad seeks to unpack the computing firm's "intent-based network" solutions which allow clients to speed up their digital operations.

The cinematic two-and-a-half-minute film shows Dinklage boldly wandering through the streets of London describing how simple the new network is as he contemplates the hyper-connected world around him.

The spot was created by Ogilvy, which won the business in May of this year.
