British internet company Sky Fibre has enlisted the X-Men to help sell their new hi-speed internet service, and they've drafted none other than Evan Peters's popular Quicksilver to show just how fast their product can go in a homage to his breakout scene from X-Men: Days of Future Past.

The ad uses the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, but it also breaks the continuity of the film, which is set in the 1980's when hi-speed internet was merely science fiction.

The ad also places Storm among the X-Men. We know she'll join the team eventually, but as of Apocalypse, she's actually a villain in movie continuity.

It's also interesting to note that the ad uses the song "Come and Get Your Love" by Redbone, which was used in the iconic opening scene of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Don't expect this clip to make it into the film as a deleted scene.

X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters May 27.
