Is it? Perhaps you care to create your own version of this ad? Or maybe a totally different ad? What's obvious to me is that Erickson is doing what Apple has been doing for years. In this ad, we have the At&t girl vs. the Verizon Wireless girls. In the case of Apple, we have Mac guy vs. PC guy. As for all the vampire references, like I said, the agency was poking fun at Twilight. No, they weren't promoting the show, nor was Verizon condoning the extreme antisocial behavior of blood sucking.

I"m not sure they were mocking twilight more than they were riding the coat tails. However...the tween girls will LOVE THIS!! It gets a little weird when all the HS girls are in the woods after he's ditched his ATT babe. It's a fun spot. The back end 3g girls should not be there. He should just disappear. And then come back with the stinger of a new babe with the 3G. just my two cents.

Let's keep advertising fun

That is one sad bandwagon.

I'm gonna say this in my language. I think it expresses better what I want to say:
QUÉ GRAN MONTÓN DE MIERDA.

This is just sad. Though I always like comparative ads, as it is forbidden here.

I hate it when people offer knee-jerk reactions such as "crap", the "ugly", "next", "horrible", "fail", etc. Care to explain your reasoning or why you don't like something? I agree with grafikaholic: it's not too bad. This is definitely not one of my favorite commercials, but at the same time I don't find it horrible. Clearly, the guys at Erickson are poking fun at Twilight. I don't watch it, but I know that it's become a cultural phenomenon. So yeah, I find the ad mildly funny. It's definitely not on par with E*Trade's milkaholic baby, but still.

They are over exploiting the map concept.
