Sky has teamed up with Disney Pixar to create a new TV ad featuring characters from the popular Toy Story franchise.

The advert is to promote Sky's super-fast broadband service and also celebrate the launch of the all-new 30-minute Toy Story OF TERROR! TV special.

This will premiere in the UK and Ireland on Sky Movies Disney in October 2013.

In the new 50-second advert, Buzz, Woody, Jesse and the other Toy Story characters are seen struggling to get online because of issues with their current broadband provider.

Luckily, the Toy Story aliens come to the rescue, highlighting the benefits of Sky Fibre services.

The super-fast broadband service offers download speeds of up to 76Mb, with no usage caps or traffic management.

Sky Fibre Unlimited is currently available for just £10 a month for six months plus Sky line rental.

After the initial six-month period, the monthly price rises to £20 plus line rental.

Lyssa McGowan, Director of Sky Broadband, commented: "Following the explosion in the use of internet-connected devices in the home, more and more households find that they all want to get online at the same time.

"Sky Fibre provides the perfect solution, delivering a super-fast service that meets the demands of busy homes."

She said this is "brilliantly brought to life" by the Toy Story characters in the new advert, which she described as "funny and beautifully-crafted".

Sky said the launch of the new Toy Story advert builds on its ongoing collaboration with Disney and follows the successful launch of Sky Movies Disney HD earlier in 2013.

This marked the first time Disney had launched a co-branded linear movie channel anywhere in the world.
