The long, slow wait

Sadly for the French, they often have to wait up until a year for an American show to broadcast after its US launch. BETC Paris has depicted their struggle through this Game of Thrones-esque parody ad that seems stuck in slow motion.

The ad was made for Canalsat, which will broadcast 27 series at the same time as they come out in the US, including Game of Thrones, which this particular ad is promoting.

The 50-second clip called “The Battle” shows that the viewers aren’t the only ones tired of waiting. The epic ad has it’s actors carrying out a slow-motion battle sequence which takes so long that the seasons change around them while they wait to continue.

Then one frustrated man refuses to wait anymore and heads off to Canalsat, bidding his fellow fighters to join him.
