ET is back

By Chris Pash | 2 December 2019

After 37 years, E.T. (extraterrestrial) comes back to visit his friend, Elliott (actor Henry Thomas who played the role in the original 1982 Steven Spielberg film).

The alien learns that Elliott now has a family of his own and that technology has changed on Earth since his last visit.

Elliott's children find ET in the garden at Christmas. 

The US and UK TV campaign was created by Sky and Comcast. The LA-based  Goodby Silverstein & Partners collaborated with Sky’s in-house agency Sky Creative Agency on the campaign.

In the US, Comcast is using the video to promote its Xfinity digital cable TV brand.
