Tool Preps for Summer with Charter

Tool Director Geordie Stephens, via the Richards Group, just completed a humorous four-spot campaign for Charter Communications. The spots are at once a celebration of summer and the outdoors while showcasing the special role Charter's indoor-oriented programming plays in customers' leisure hours.

Procrastination stars a shopping-cart racing, football-watching, prank-playing slacker who is saved from his last-minute paper deadline by Charter's super high-speed Internet connections. Potbelly stars a couple enamored of their newborn potbelly pig, who they tote around in their SUV, take to the beach, mingle with the dogs in the park - and of course video chat with via Charter Internet and spend long hours vegging on the couch with in front of the provider's many family-oriented offerings.
