The campaign has just been revealed.
Pierce Brosnan stars in €10m Sky Ireland campaign
Pay-TV provider launches major advertising push for broadband products
Sky Ireland is spending €10 million on a marketing campaign starring actor Pierce Brosnan to promote its new broadband and home phone services. The pay-TV provider will “roadblock” Irish television stations in the 21.15pm ad break tonight, meaning viewers of all Irish channels will be exposed to the ad featuring the former James Bond. (…)
The television element of the campaign was developed by the London-based ad agency WCRS and was shot by director Taiki Waititi and Oscar and Bafta-nominated cinematographer Danny Cohen.
Yesterday viewers of all Irish channels saw this TV advert.
