AT&T and Verizon Waltz in New iPhone Ad

| January 23, 2011 | Reply

For everyone who remembers the “There’s a Map for That” commercials, you may want to take a seat.  This will come as kind of a shock.  After years of back and forth banter, the endless marketing dollars spent attacking each others’ networks, devices, coverage, etc. Verizon and AT&T have joined forces to promote their respective iPhone 4s.  Together, each iPhone performs actions mirroring one another, showing off the features of the iPhones and ends with the two logos side-by-side.  In a catchy waltz, this ad is very well done.  Check out the video below and let us know what you think in the comments!

The unthinkable has happened. After spending 99 percent of their recent marketing budgets figuring out ways to sling mud at each other, AT&T and Verizon have now come together to dance a merry waltz — all in the name of Apple’s hallowed iPhone. The latest commercial for the phone that really doesn’t need advertising shows that you can FaceTime, read iBooks, navigate maps, and do everything else on theVerizon iPhone just as well as you could do it on the AT&T-friendly GSM variant of the device. As if you didn’t already know. Still, it’s fun to see these guys trying to turn their lack of competitive diversity into some sort of an advantage.
