Friday, March 3rd, 2017

I guess putting the ad on the bike and then parking it here for tout le monde to see makes this exercise almost legal:

That’s using your noodle, Sprint!

Bro jaywalks a bit, then is forced to stop by traffic, as seen, then starts jaywalking again – almost walked into the side of a car he did.

How AT&T Beat Verizon During Super Bowl 50: AT&T Has a Better Musical Line-Up, a Better Venue, and It’s Not Violating our Advertising Laws

Thursday, February 4th, 2016

I can’t believe that the Verizon people paid millions for the right to look like a bunch of jackasses during Super Bowl 50’s Super Week in Frisco.

Verizon doesn’t know/respect SF advertising laws? Apparently. Now it wants money back from our local Host Committee, the same committee that has committed to pay us, the people of San Francisco, back money if things don’t work out with SB50?

So that’s STRIKE ONE. STRIKE TWO is that even though AT&T DIRECTV isn’t an OFFICIAL SPONSOR, it has a BETTER LINE UP than what you can see up at SUPER BOWL CITY. See below. (IDK how available tickets are for any of these events now. I heard a radio ad when I was down at Pier 70 the other day but not since, oh well.

And STRIKE THREE is that AT&T’s party is down at PIER 70, where it belongs. Hey, why couldn’t Verizon have its parties down in that area instead of making office workers go through metal detectors in the Financial multiple times a day? (And man, Pier 70, the whole complex is amazing – there’s a lot of character / history here. Oh a and a few leaks when it rains, but they’re working on it…)

And of course, AT&T is working on making sure your phone works in the bay area over the next few days, no matter how many people are around you. But of course so is Verizon so it’s anybody’s guess who will win that race. I bet they’ll both do fine…

S0 BOO, Verizon. (Hey why not offer to pay SFGov all the money we’re out for your street party, Verizon? Write a fat check payable to “SF GENERAL FUND,” I’m srsly.

And YAY AT&T, why not?

Read all about it below:
