Here’s a little bit of a funny take on communication technology for you this fine Friday Funny Day. The following are tv commercials for Verizon and Motorolla’s Droid Razr. Notice the stark contrast in how mother/daughter and father/son react to graduation and moving away.
Here is the original Mother/Daughter commercial.
Later on, Verizon got some complaints and changed the commercial so that it didn’t need subtitles. I’m not sure what the complaint was or why the change, but in my humble opinion, the original was much funnier.
Here is the Father/Son commercial, also with subtitles. Nobody complained there.
What do you think of the commercials? Why do you think the original Mother’s Day commercial was changed? Why do you think the Father/Son commercial was not offensive to anyone? Share your thoughts.
