Motorola DROID BIONIC commercial leaks, shows no sign of the phone but confirms September launch
A copy of  Verizon's upcoming commercial for the Motorola DROID BIONIC was obtained by Android Central. Instead of delving into the features of the mythical handset, or showing off the actual phone, we are treated to what appears to be some sort of gladiator-style contest taking part in a giant stadium. If we do learn one thing from the ad, it is that the long awaited handset will launch next month.

At the 28 second mark you will see a QR code briefly flicker on and off the screen. So far, no one has been able to scan it to see what comes up. If you happen to be able to successfully do so, please drop us a comment in the box below. Also feel free to comment on the ad. Is it up to the same quality as the original Motorola DROID spots, or are we looking at something that reminds you of those impossible to decipher Palm Pre ads? Perhaps if we could just hear the audio more clearly, we could get a better grasp of what the message is.

Ugh... Verizon has been slacking so much lately. I don't even feel that excited for this phone anymore. I'm almost tired of it already and it's not even out yet.

Okay, I wanna see how the ad campaign develops for the phone now. It looks about as epic as the old Droid ads used to be.

I agree and I'm not looking forward to it, lol. Guess I have to prepare myself for Drooiiiid and DroidDoes. Fun times

Well, I can't say I expect the Droid marketing to apply to everyone. The original Droid ads very obviously targeted the counter culture crowd, and since then have really delved into the "sci fi badass robot" themes. Right up my alley, but not everyone's. And I'm okay with that. :)

Only Sniggles can resort to a childish retort "I like turtles." hoping it's supposed to stop me from commenting. It won't. Keep posting your turtle comments, but I will keep being myself and giving my opinion.

You know what else is childish? Having that profile pic and then claiming you're straight.

After all, the mature thing to do would be to stop acting like a Republican politician and admit that you're ga.y. Like I said before, we'll still love you all the same. :)

You know what's even childish - claiming I'm *** just because I have a profile pic of the miz.

And Sniggly, I assure you i'm not ***. Course, I don't want you to have any idle thoughts about me now.

Oooo! a Bionic Ninja Lady! i was hoping for that in the Bionic ads! ;D

Verizon has it down when it comes to marketing Droids. it's the secret behind their success with Android. they're the ones that made it cool to actually NOT have an iPhone and to try something new with some mighty big bark and see if it actually has the bite to back it up and 7 Droids later we say yes..yes it does. ;]

i tried scanning the QR code myself. i can't get the Youtube video to pause on a frame where the code isn't cut off a little at the top.

If someone was a good enough artist, they could draw the code and see what comes up.

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

I'd love to watch it, but now it says that the video has been removed because it "violates YouTube's terms of service".

The code brings you to a VZW site to sign up for email alerts for the Bionic.

OK, so none of you are getting it. They are asking about the ad. What does having a woman's head cut off have to do with selling phones. Obviously Verizon has a very misogynistic advertising agency and marketing director.
