Cable TV companies the world over are always trying to tell us we're missing out if we don't subscribe to their service, but some do it in funnier ways than others. This spot running in Norway, promoting French broadcaster Canal Digital's service, shows what could happen when you miss out on a key reference from a cult TV show. The ad follows the fate of an office worker who is haunted -- in hilarious ways -- by the mysterious "Silver Hand" reference throughout his life. Oslo agency Try/Apt created the spot, directed by Bacon's Bart Timmer.
