TOPIC: I think that ferret's mine.

I think that ferret's mine. 15 Dec 2013 21:29 #167896

I damn near reinjured my back laughing at the new advert with Ed Norton in it. At the end he's in a warehouse Connect Four game, apparently playing for stakes, and wins the other guy's ferret. You guys seen this thing?

Yeah I think it references his Rounders role. Pretty wacky commercial for Verizon.

I watched the video and it seems to be a perfect example of "trying too hard." I'm surprised I didn't like it as I usually dig innovative commercials but this was just too much and too obvious maybe?

Everything in that commercial points to "it" being a toy, so why do they say "it's not a toy"?

A level of quality you shouldn't stoop to Barney.

yeah, probably. Like Avatar-quality I guess. Oh boy, there's going to be 3 more! I hope the next one does a Mulan cover.
