Consumer Blasts Verizon With Car Windows

Another fine example of people using their cars as anti-corporate billboards. What really makes this one, however, is what the owner decided to park his car in front of.

No one does irony and rage, and SUVs better than NYC, baby.

(Thanks to Chris!)

UPDATE: The photo inside should make things more clear for those of you wondering what the heck we’re talking about with this whole crazy context thing.

  1. in front of what?

    just had to have a jersey plate…

  3. masd says:

    “America’s Most Trusted Network” is the slogan of NBC, one the the major American television networks. NYC is probably the headquarters, but i’m not 100% on that.

  4. Ben Popken says:

    Ok, it’s a little hard because it’s a pixelated camera phone. The billboard has the Verizon guy on the far left. “America’s Most Reliable Network” is Verizon’s slogan.

  5. TPIRman says:

    The billboard says “America’s Most Reliable Network.” It’s a Verizon ad. See the “Can You Hear Me Now?” guy on the left? Hence the irony.

    There’s also a Verizon Wireless store about a block away from where this car parked, on 5th b/w 20th and 21st St.

    It would be more effective if he said WHY Verizon sucks… to him…

  7. The Bans says:

    I think the biggest problem would be being able to hear what you are reading. That’d scare me cause that would mean the voices are back.

    /cry

    It’s not irony. It’s just bitching.

  9. RumorsDaily says:

    Uh, wait, what was his problem? That they “suck” really isn’t enough to make me consider not using Verizon. It would be nice to know, for example, why they might “suck.”

  10. Narnia says:

    I’m never using Verizon again! Not even to text message or nothin. That campaign really helped me decide. Good work, citizen advertisers

  11. SpyMagician says:

    So, if that was against Verizon can anyone explain what that station wagon Chevy Chase is driving around in with the words “Honky Lips” painted on the side means?
