Half-Fast commercial in poor taste
RGM2
Newbie

Am I the only one who thinks that the latest Verizon commercial about the faster internet speeds is in poor taste.  Everyone in the commercial may be saying Half-fast, but it certainly doesn't sound like that, and I don't think that it is "cute" in any way.  I am so angry about it that if I didn't have another year left on my contract, I would change providers for my tv, phone and internet.  But that would mean I would have to give Verizon, even more money an I refuse to do that.

I personally could care less. I find all commercials annoying only I don't get my panties in a bunch over them. I just change the channel (or if it is a DVRed show, fast forward).

I think it's funny.  You think it's in poor taste.  That's the way it is in the world of opinions.

I could care less about a commercial. What I care about is how good my service is.

I walked into the room while the ad was on... not at a time to know it was about Fios until the end.  These new ads should not be on TV!  Especially the one that I just saw... with the children.  Verizon needs to change the name of the new process.  Ads that sound like curse words should not be on TV!  As a child I was not allowed to say "shut up".

And I find this post in poor taste. It's a humurous play on words.

Its scientifically proven that children will inevitably say curse words, whether they learn from their parents, what on TV, or not.  That say...the commecial is more terrible....than in poor taste......actually...poor taste never crossed my mind.  Lighten up!

Wow have you actually watched any of your TV channels channels?  You know they curse on many , some show nudity and there are even gay and pornographic channels.  

You might want to consider canceling your TV service and move into a cave
