    Those are cool. I'd like to see Luke Wilson try to upstage them.

    Great ads. It also shows that Verizon is still 100% behind the Droid.

    Great commercials! I haven't seen them on TV yet. It's nice to see that verizon is still putting a lot of money behind the Droid. Dog

    These commercials seriously put AT&T to shame. Who at AT&T thought it was a bright idea to simply have Luke Wilson standing in front of some chart looking like a confused Doberman, spouting off meaningless facts in the hopes of converting one or two gullible customers?

    My mom finally turned in her probably 6+ year old flip phone from the dark ages and got a new BB Curve and moved cities where the reception absolutely blows so she's going to be dropping AT&Lame and going to Verizon. Better get to work Luke! :)

    Lol I hadn't seen that commercial. "Where's my cool phone?" ?? Seriously? lol
    I'll bet you anything Luke Wilson walks of the set of these embarrassing commercials and performs the worlds greatest facepalm. Verizon, please rescue the iPhone from AT&Fail.

    Love it. If verizon had the nexus one, iPhone, or any other phone out there, I wouldn't find interest in trading in the droid. This phone still amazes me and I got it a week after launch. The second commercial should have carried on about multitasking apps for another 6 to 8 seconds though.
