It's open season on wireless carriers' silly and confusing commercials.
Sure, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint & T-Mobile have been the butt of jokes for some time now, and justifiably so, for the flimflam they spew about their amazing speeds and bargain pricing. SNL, for example, skewered Verizon a few years back in a skit that depicted all the jargon spewed by Verizon as "an old person's nightmare."
Sprint is practically mocking its own industry now too by hiring the same actor who used to ask "Can you hear me now?" for Verizon to shill its services.
And now we have Cracked's "When Mobile Providers are Actually Honest," an honest ad whose spokesman assures us that those colorful coverage maps are hooey, as is the marketing term 4G.
