Verizon's Classless Commercial

Verizon is attracting the wrong kind of attention

Verizon has a new commercial where the whole ad is based on the slogan “half-fast” internet. This double entendre is repeated over and over again.

The entire commercial’s dialogue has various people, mostly families, including a mother in front of her child, saying half-fast instead of half-a$$ed.

Verizon should be more responsible in their marketing decisions. Let them know that as a parent and a consumer you are offended that they care more about their financial gain than what impression they are making on our children. Verizon executives apparently don’t care about what children hear as long as it puts money in their pockets. Everyone knows kids repeat what they see and hear. This is weak marketing, and Verizon should have enough corporate responsibility not to use an age old euphemism that offends families.

Please send Verizon an email letter requesting they cancel their new “half-fast” commercial immediately!
