A spot features soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, a worldwide spokesman for Altice getting caught outside a hotel room in his underwear. A hotel employee takes a digital picture of him that goes viral and is on the TV news by the time he gets back into his hotel room.
Altice is running the ads in the New York, Texas, West Virginia, Louisiana, and 14 other states served by the company’s Optimum and Suddenlink brands. The ad will run on TV, digital and social.
