I've never even seen a FIOS commercial before.   Not available here.


But I'd be willing to endure whatever they can throw at me in the commercial departmet just to be able to have the superior picture quality and HD lineup of FIOS.

They have a new series of commercials for FIOS. The annoying little kid is gone. The new campaign is aimed at getting Cable TV subscribers to switch. There are two characters - the Verizon FIOS guy - who looks nice and clean cut, and the Cable TV guy, who's older, bearded and looks "smarmier"... No, the FIOS guy is NOT the "can you hear me now?" dude. The two guys cross paths in their building and have a conversation, where FIOS dude touts the superiority of FIOS over cable TV.

FIOS is only available in areas where Verizon (formerly GTE) is your local telephone company. We have a weird deal in the Dallas area, most areas are served by Bell (now AT&T) but a couple of suburbs are served by GTE/Verizon. My friends that have FIOS love it,  but I live in an AT&T area.

I hate these commercials, too. I just want to dick punch that Verizon FIOS guy (really, who walks around with the JD Power and Associates award when they're making house calls? Angry) and the cable guy's no better.

And what's with the way the one guy says "My man." He just sounds extremely gay. Also the Verizon guy really looks like he needs a kick in the balls with a steeltoed boot wrapped in barbed wire

Metaphorically speaking, the Verizon twerp represents the savvy consumer,
cable guy, the misinformed nitwit.
The commercial itself  isnt the worst out there, but just like all the other cable, phone, and wireless spots by everybody else, its the fecking mind numbing repitition.
Yes, I get it, for the Guddamn mizillionth time, ya wanna sell me something......PISS OFF
The ad people that come up with all  this crap should have fiber optic cable wrapped round thier collective necks and then tossed off the roof..........um, metaphorically speaking......
Cheez-its....getcha own friggin box....Grrrrr

I don't know the name of the actor who plays the FIOS dude, but he should be in the Repeat Offenders thread.  That guy is in EVERYTHING.

For some reason I find those Verizon guy vs. cable guy commercials EXTREMELY annoying.  Part of it is, of course, maybe if both the cable company AND Verizon would stop spending so much on ads, their prices would be better!!!
 
My daughter moved and had no choice but to get Verizon.  Worst. customer. service. ever.  She even had a guy out to her apartment who got a phone call, clearly not an emergency, and the guy JUST LEFT without even saying anything to her, and her problem was not solved. 
 
So, my two words for the Verizon FIOS guys would be....SHUT UP!
