Goofy dudes dancing in the diner, one of them dropping rhymes about his pre-paid in a nod to Kelis' hit "Milkshake," which is now thirteen years old. Dude even drops some Spanish to appeal to the Hispanic market, bringing up the feature of being able to call Mexico. "With my prepaid Mexico feels like home. For my cuates, I’ve never been gone. My grandma thinks I’m a good boy. Bye bye roaming, there’s no extra charge.” I get the sense that Verizon has no idea what "Milkshake" was actually about. But to be fair, very few phone companies can pull off hip, especially when treating the lyrics like one rhyming retail features list.
If people aren't big fans of it, Verizon should just put the blame fair and square on Lonely Island. If they know who that is. Without Lonely Island, the goofy parody rap would be kept to a minimum.
