Thumbs down According to Verizon / Motorola, apparently I'm a princess for using an iPhone

"Race horse duct taped to a scud missile"

Are they serious? A little underlying homophobia in there perhaps?

Epic fail by Verizon and Motorola. Apparently they know they can't overtake the overall smartphone demographic, so they are just going after the college-jock, chauvinistic crowd.

Thanks Motorola, but I'm confident enough in my own sexuality to pick the best smartphone based on its own technical merit.

Besides, I've seen most of the guys in the UFC using iPhones.

If one can be confident, have an air of class, look good in a tux, have some muscle and all the best gadgets in the world... wait is that the iPhone or James Bond?

Good thing Stevie didn't make 'em in pink.

Seriously, what an offensive commercial. That will turn off about half the phone-buying population right there. Also, what good is being fast if you have nowhere to go (heard of the app store, droid-knuckle-walkers?)

But you look so good in that sparkling tiara and frilly pink cocktail dress, your worship. Gotta do something about the size of those feet, tho...

i didn't find it offensive at all. it's a commercial. they've been known to take shots at competitors products.

don't be so sensitive.

Tying your product's image to the SCUD missile?
The slow, inaccurate, often failing to detonate SCUD missile?

I am left to ponder the wisdom of their advertising.

Get the phone that men who are most insecure in their masculinity are flocking to buy!

Just doesn't play out when you step back and look at it.. does it?

A SCUD? Wasn't that 15+ years ago? I think I'll compare my new car to a Chevy Celebrity.
