There is nothing like a good ad bashing of a competitor. Sure, it is a little unprofessional at times, but it is always fun. It has been happening for decades from carriers, to OEM’s to competing food and beverage companies. Anyone remember this Pepsi vs Coke ad?
I am a Pepsi myself. I personally think it is all fun and games. Half the time I think these guys call each other and plan out some ad attacks together. You all caught the last one put out by AT&T in response to John’s CES comment that AT&T’s network was “Crap.” It was a full-page ad down playing T-Mobiles network. It looks like T-Mobile has some new ads on the way in response to it and I have got to say, they are PERFECT. Like the one below – “If AT&T thought our network wasn’t great, why did they try to buy it?” They just sunk their battleship on that one.
Which ad is your personal favorite?
