New Verizon Ad FAIL: iPhone beautiful / Droid kludge, which side are they on?

Verizon’s new iPhone bashing ad calls Apple’s innovative and well-designed smartphone “pretty” and a “tiara wearing digitally clueless beauty pageant queen.” It then continues to advertise that the Verizon Motorola Droid is a robot, while unintentionally admitting that Droid is comparable to a hastily made kludge. Brilliant.

Here is the tv ad:

Yes it’s a ridiculous ad, so we have an equally over the top explanation of what it means.

Verizon: Down with Pretty

Verizon is hoping their new anti-iPhone ads will prevent their high end smartphone users from switching to the Apple iPhone.

First thing the ad made clear is that Verizon dislikes winners. It implies that Verizon believes fame, beauty, success (qualities associated to beauty queens, winner of beauty pageants), are pointless qualities.

Verizon: Droid is Pretty

Should a phone be pretty? Should it be tiara wearing digitally clueless beauty pageant queen? Verizon thinks so.

Too bad Verizon’s own website contradicts their latest message; its own “Droid Does” website clearly advertises that the Droid is “pretty.”

Verdict? Verizon is the new king of short attention span, with this contradictory-message advertising FAIL. Wait, there is more!

  1. Oops forgot this one:

    Verizon Droid: get one and forget about beautiful girls, by destroying a phallic object near you!

    What’s funny is the Droid is the much better phone. Who cares about ad campaigns, the Droid is superior on practically every level that the phones can be compared on.

    • Hi Tomé, Thanks for visiting.

      A kludge is a clumsy solution / temporary workaround. The type of solution is often sloppily held by duct tape and would require rework later.

  4. UAU!

    In Brasil the word is: “GAMBIARRA” rs.
