BT has released a multi-million pound ad campaign called ‘Set Your Internet Free’ which looks to outline its complete Wi-Fi guarantee. It claims when the BT Smart Hub 2 and Wi-Fi Disc are paired, homes are permeated in connectivity.

Set to the sound of 'Clint Eastwood' by Gorillaz, the creative explores the world of uninterrupted internet entertainment with BT outlining that its new Wi-Fi disks reach every room of the home with reduced buffering and dropped connections.

Homes are filled with characters from the movie, gaming and entertainment worlds in the spot: from gameified soldiers to bath-based fantasy streaming characters. All with the aim of showcasing how a stable Wi-Fi connection can help immerse people in their recreational activities during their downtime.
