What If Cable Companies Told Us The Truth? [Video]

Could you imagine what it would be like if cable and Internet providers were honest with us? ExtremelyDecentFilms did.

In the team’s latest video, creators Jon, Nick and Ian slapped something together that’s part comedy, part painful truth, and all genius. It’s like tuning straight into the brain of a cable exec, and winding through all the machinations that produced the jacked-up cable and broadband services we put up with today. Oddly enough, if this was actually a genuine commercial for some unconventional cable company, it would probably elicit more respect than the inflated, over-hyped bursts of marketing gibberish and nonsense that usually slimes us.

The viral vid clearly resonates with a lot of people out there. In the three days since it was posted online, it has 320,000+ video views and counting. The only other EDF video that beat this was its “Gollum vs. Smeagol Rap Battle” (which, by the way, is a must-see if you’re a LoTR fan).

WARNING: There’s some strong, foul language in here. So if you’re in your cubicle watching this at work… well, don’t. (Or at least don’t say we didn’t warn you.)
