In the long history of betrayals, none will stand out like the Verizon Guy jumping ship to aid a rival company in selling their wares to the public. Sprint has poached Paul from Verizon, now using him to sell Sprint’s 1 percent difference from their competitors. Something this hurtful hasn’t happened sine the Pets.com dog started selling life insurance after the dot com bubble burst.
You might also remember Paul as the “can you hear me now?” guy, traversing the globe to show off Verizon’s superiority in signal. He was street smart and wise, but clearly it all went to his head. He’s a commodity to be traded around phone companies like a cheap high-school girlfriend. Meet my dad, mom and dad. Her name is Paul.
