    The latest Verizon ad for the Bionic is one testosterone pumping promo. Unlike the typical random display of images, this new ad has quite the story line. A fairly attractive lady with a sword, who let her in the kitchen, goes around killing machines and collecting parts. She kills the first robot and takes his 8MP/1080p camera, the next robot loses his HDMI port, followed by a dual-core processor, and lastly a robot loses his powerful 4G LTE chip. These all go together to make a new device, a device coming in a few days, a Droid Bionic.

    This is a pretty sweet ad. Plus they didn't feel the need to take a shot at any other manufacturer, they are actually trusting the phone to do the talking for itself, which I love. I am not too interested in buying a Bionic but I give the ad campaign an A.

    I'm sorry, but that has to be the WORST ad I have ever seen, regardless of the product being sold.

    I thought it was a pretty sweet ad. Idk what kind of TV that one guy watches for it to the be the worst ad he has ever seen. A little dramatic maybe? The snuggie commercials were pretty terrible.

    Uhmmm no.


    I like the advertisement. It shows something svelte, sexy, and dressed in black destroying the big bullies.

    I'm not 100% sure this is the right one (because I'm at work and can't watch it), but if it is, this has GOT to be the worst commercial I have ever seen:

    Clearly this guy hasn't seen the ad for the Broccoli Wad; thankfully I could only find the version DJ Steve Porter parodied, but you get the idea.

    I agree with it being bad.

    I'd rather have it as she battles one giant machine and when she wins, she gets the prize which is the phone, after a closeup of her eyes with one glowing like the Droid icon.
