More about Xfinity’s ad featuring “Go Your Own Way”

I’ve written about Xfinity’s ads recently, one campaign featuring a cover version of “Walk of Life,” by Dire Straits. If you’re curious about that one, click here. But moving right along, Xfinity has a new ad promoting their mobile phone plan. The ad is called “My World.” You can take a look at the spot here:

The ad features an assortment of folks doing their own thing: riding a horse in a downtown setting, clipping a bonsai tree, smoking out a motorcycle tire, riding a unicycle, and more. The ad is set to the music of Fleetwood Mac, “Go Your Own Way” but performed by a singer named Moses Sumney.

Moses can be found on screen or behind the camera. Here is a recent music video of his, followed by a music video he directed for the band Sylvan Esso.

“Walk of Life” in Xfinity TV ad

Xfinity has a series of ads that feature a melody you may recognize. The 30-second spots don’t include any lyrics so it may be a little difficult to name the song. The ads are titled “Working A Little Differently.” Here’s an example of one…

Can you name the song? It’s “Walk Of Life” by Dire Straits, although this version is performed by Bhi Bhiman. I have no idea how to say his name but here’s the version used in the Xfinity ads.

It might just be me, but I believe the track used in the Xfinity commercials is sped up from the original, but not by much. Just to give credit where credit is due, here’s the original by Dire Straits. Thanks for stopping by!

Internet update – AT&T Fiber vs. Xfinity

Well, I went 4 or 5 days with AT&T Fiber and the conclusion is this: It was one of the worst decisions I’ve made in my adult life! Here’s more about that

Well, as of today, I’m back on Xfinity and never expected to feel this much relief! I can now confidently say with certainty that I’m one of those poeple that can’t function very long at home without stable internet. This discovered truth makes me wonder how I’d do in a zombie apocalypse. Perhaps, not well if I’m being totally honest! haha

AT&T… thanks for trying! But you came up way short. And now I’ve got this annoying white box attached to one of my house walls as a reminder of the mistake I made.

What’s the opposite of an altar? Remember in the Old Testament of the Bible someone would build an altar to remember something great that happened in that spot, right? Well, this little white box is like that, except the opposite. Kind of like a scar. An accidental pregnancy. A dent in your car. A tattoo of your ex’s name. 

But I guess it’s water under the bridge now. I’m just glad I can have reliable internet again!

Switching to AT&T Fiber… biggest mistake of my adult life

I’ve had AT&T Fiber for about a week and I’ve come to this conclusion:

I’m basically paying $60/month to NOT have internet.

In fact, this post is happening by using the hotspot on my phone. You know there’s a problem when your phone’s hotspot is what you rely on when you definitely pay for home internet! This has become what I see throughout the day when I try to do anything on my computer.

Hulu and YouTube show different error messages than Safari, but they all mean the same thing: I’m paying AT&T to keep me offline. How many people can say that? Actually, probably a lot of people can, based on reviews I’ve seen. There are so many message boards out there with people trying to figure out how to fix the issues but my best guess is I just need to cut my losses and go back to Xfinity.

I know one thing for sure: this is NOT the freedom our forefathers promised us. I never thought I’d miss Xfinity so much. I’ll have updates soon, that is, if I can connect to the internet to make new blog posts!

Oi vey.
