Maybe Verizon Should Stick to Attack Ads

Now that Verizon has tactfully put Apple’s iPhone and AT&T’s 3G service in their place, it should be easy for the manufacturer to waltz in and show off its new phone. Unfortunately, their approach is more ‘down one with no men on and two outs’ than it is ‘grand-slam to win the game.’

The voice over is a bit weak for me and an comparison to rock crushing, hole-in-wall punching robots misses the mark. ‘DroidDoes’ is the theme, accompanied by a site and VerizonWireless homepage takeover. McGarry Bowen gets the credit.
