Ones and Zeros
A Binary Pulse Technology Blog
Watching a pre-roll version of a recent AT&T commercial, I was taken aback at what appears to be a pretty clever, and not-so-subtle jab at arch-rival Verizon.
I always loved the late 80s/early 90s AT&T ad campaign dubbed “You Will.” Remember that one? The campaign voiced by Magnum P.I. himself, Tom Selleck, depicted near-future scenarios in which technology would afford seemingly incredible feats of connectivity. In a pre-Internet world, these little vignettes seemed fairly miraculous. After happening across a compiled montage of these fantastic, forward-looking clips, it would appear that AT&T batted nearly 1.000 (the video payphones didn’t quite happen.)
