Honestly, I don’t see how these ads could make up for the shortcomings of Vz and the Droid. How does a snarky ad fix a battery cover or enable simultaneous data and voice usage?
Would you similarly forgive Apple for your grievances if they had a Michael-Bay-like commercial attacking a competitor?
The ‘droid can’ and ‘map for that’ commercials seem far more effective, as they actually have a point. This ad is intent on attacking potential customers, and fostering an us-vs-them self view in current droid owners. Are they concerned that the newly minted $350 early termination fee is not enough to hang on to Droid owners?
I just have no idea who they are trying to target. For selling an smartphone, shouldn’t you like not offend the crowd who buys apple products. I guess they are banking on the rednecks who hate aesthetics market.
