Maybe not everyone remembers the "Bad Idea Jeans" skit on SNL from back in the day, but the marketing people at Verizon sure do.
F*** them!


Who are the ad wizards who came up with this one?

I remember the skit. It's certainly a Bad Idea to rip off an obscure skit to advertise your crappy phones.

I thought the first thing when I saw this one - "I don't....usually...have unprotected sex - but then I thought, 'hey, when am I going to be in Haiti again?'"
