On-demand and off-grid.

Disney: “The Streamer” - 60s

Dave Bautista stars in this laid back piece of work for Disney+, which draws attention to the streaming platform's new bundle. There's no muscle-flexing or OTT heroics from Bautista; instead, he enjoys the simple life in Kermit the Frog Country, rowing a boat and, well, watching the cream of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN.

Like a family-friendly version of Sapper Morton from 'Blade Runner 2049', The Streamer is a likeable creation who just "likes to stream it real good". Amusingly, the ad also includes a super that warns "a stable Internet connection...may not be available in all areas" - which begs the question: how does Ol' Man River manage to watch his favourite shows hassle-free?
