New Verizon ad takes aim right at AT&T and the iPhone
The Island of Misfit Toys has a new inhabitant in a brand new knee slapping Verizon Wireless ad. The Island's new citizen is none other than the iPhone. "What are you doing here?", asks one toy, "You can download apps and browse the web." The iPhone then shows off the infamous blue AT&T 3G coverage map used by Verizon in other ads. "You're gonna fit in here," says another misfit toy. Obviously, Verizon feels that they have the ammunition to go after Apple's touchphone with the Motorola DROID. Funilly enough, the DROID is not even mentioned in the ad which ends with a quick pitch for the HTC Imagio and DROID Eris. Two other seasonal ads include a Blue Christmas theme based on the blue AT&T coverage map, and a quick spot using Elves who are determining who is naughty (AT&T customers) or nice (Verizon customers). With these spots, Verizon is taking a strong push at the iPhone and AT&T, yet using a tongue-in-cheek brand of humor that has kept eyes on the t.v. screen during the commercials which is all a company can ask for. Let's see how AT&T responds.
