Verizon “map” commercials feel desperate

The first time I saw a Verizon 3G coverage map commercial, I thought it was pretty sharp and bold… but that was months ago.

Today, Verizon continues to put out new commercials that basically say nothing new whatsoever. They just keep making the same point over and over and over again… THE MAP. That’s it.

It reminds me of two school yard kids arguing.

KID #1 (Verizon) – “Your shoes have holes in them! haha!”

KID #2 (AT&T) – “Your mom slept with the lawn boy”

KID #1 (Verizon) – “Your shoes have holes in them! haha!”

KID #2 (AT&T) – “All the girls at school call you butt head”

KID #1 (Verizon) – “Your shoes have holes in them! haha!”

KID #2 (AT&T) – “You’ve failed 4th grade twice”

KID #1 (Verizon) – “Your shoes have holes in them! haha!”

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying Verizon isn’t as good as AT&T… not at all… but where AT&T is pointing out different things like “We cover more americans”, and “We have faster 3G” and “You can talk and surf the web on our 3G”… Verizon just keeps showing that rather pointless map over and over and over and over and over and over and over again… and quite frankly it seems really desperate.

Dear Verizon: I’m sick to death of your map commercials. Tell me something new or just shut up. Thank you.
