BT rely on Aardman to bring home the bacon

News Image
Aardman Animations used a mixture of model animation and live action backgrounds in ‘Pig Power’, a new commercial for BT Broadband.
The stars of the commercial are two pigs on motorcycles, ‘Smokey’ and ‘Streaky’. ’Smokey’, voiced by Timothy Spall, represents the 'standard dial up Internet' as he chugs slowly along the road on his motorbike. His partner 'Streaky' however is an example of the 'up to ten times faster' broadband as he leaves the road, crashing through a fence and thrills us with his speedy and daring skills in a suburban back garden.
The ad began to air on national television on October 28.
