Adverts can be annoying but there are some ads which are undeniably great.

We like to count HP’s serialised commercials known as The Wolf among the better adverts out there.

If this is your first outing with The Wolf allow us to explain. Rather than tell you how great its printers are when it comes to security features HP enlisted the help of director Lance Acord (Lost in Translation) and actor Christian Slater to create a few short films.

In these short films Slater plays the titular role of The Wolf, a cybercriminal that is as crafty as well, a wolf.

In the latest edition of The Wolf, Slater is joined by Jonathan Banks of Breaking Bad fame and Betty Adewole from Wonder Woman.

Once again the subject of the film is printer security but matters such as phishing emails and hacking a corporate network are touched on as well.

We’ve embedded the latest edition of the short film, The Wolf: True Alpha, for you to enjoy below as well as the previous two short films after that.
