I ran a search and didn't find a post on this new ad.  Sorry if there is one.

It starts with the redheaded cable guy in a Verizon store.  He is awed by a television displaying FiOS TV in the store.  The Verizon employee talks to him, and the cable guy asks if anyone will know if he switches to FiOS.  As he says that, the FiOS tech (who has been in the other commercials with him) walks out from behind the TV display and says something like "hey, what are you doing here?" as if the tech works all the time at the Verizon retail store.

Here's why I don't get...it appears this Verizon store is one of the small mall stores that predominately sells Verizon cell phones.  Why would the Verizon tech be there?  Wouldn't they have their own building that they are based at (and go to before being sent to people's homes for installations)?  There's a Verizon building near my home that isn't a store (they are also the landline phone company in my area) and I'm sure the FiOS operations are based there as well as the phone operations, not at some Verizon store in the mall! LOL

Plus, wouldn't the cable guy go to a Verizon store in plain clothes and not his cable uniform to avoid being seen?  I think its funny when commercials like this make things so far from reality in regard to clothing just to show the person works for the opposition.  It'd never be like that in real life.

Secondly, don't you think that the cable guy would go to a Verizon store a short distance away from his town if he really wanted to avoid his Verizon tech friend?  But wait, his Verizon tech friend would probably show up to install it at his home...oh wait, I spoiled their next commercial that'll debut in a month. LOL

I detest those stupid commercials.
I'm so tired of them. Along with  the mac/PC  ads.
Enough already! They are very silly.
