12/6 update: The official video got pulled and is private now. Presumably because Verizon’s some bitches. So I have this bootleg version…turn your volume up because it’s quiet.
At first, I thought this Verizon commercial was funny. I especially liked the desperate “OK, everybody take your pants off…we’re gonna fashion us a makeshift raft” line. But the more I’ve seen it, the dumber it’s seemed. Some thoughts:
They’re floating in the ocean, do you really think all of their phones would come out unscathed? Also, they all have iPhones?
I’m lucky to have never been in this situation, but when you don’t get reception, can’t you still call 911? When I don’t have bars, that E means emergency mode. That seems like a 911 situation.
Is that Velma from Scooby-Doo?
Jack sounds like he’s making a personal call for someone to get him. I sincerely hope whoever he’s talking to will rescue the others. If not, Jack is a huge asshole.
The Verizon map only shows where you get service on land.
