Foxtel iQ Samurai and Glove

Foxtel iQ is being promoted in Australia with the help of an invisible samurai warror and a French-speaking duelling glove. The campaign, which launched in March, runs nationally on youth-orientated channels to promote the benefits of the iQ hard-disk drive (HDD) recording device to younger audiences. The two TVCs which form the backbone of the campaign show mates impressed by FOXTEL iQ’s special features, such as pausing and rewinding live TV and recording two programs at once.
