Verizon Continues New Feel-Good DROID Theme in Latest Commercial, Pimps Partnership With Color for Facebook

To celebrate the $100 price drop of the DROID RAZR MAXX, Verizon has released a second commercial that falls into this happier “DROID” theme that was introduced a couple of weeks back. Gone are the robots, loud voices, and explosions – in are ways a DROID-branded phone can make your life easier.

In this latest spot, Verizon is highlighting their new Color for Facebook app, which allows you to stream video in real-time to your Facebook wall. As seen here, a team’s coach is giving his final speech only minutes removed from winning a championship. Thanks to Color, a player was able to stream the entire thing for the world to see. There are tears involved, thoughts of Hoosiers, and me wondering how many lawsuits this will spark over the next 2 years. 

  • Thanks r0lct

  • Can someone tell me what lawsuits the author Kellex sees pending in the next two years?

    I get a little pissed everytime i see the new commercial that mentions battery life. After using the droid 4 for several weeks, I’m underwhelmed by the battery life. I’ve tried many things to get a complete day of normal use and can’t get past 12 or 13 hours without plugging in. Otherwise Droid rules!

    Color = more unnecessary & endless sharing social media app hell baked into our phones. Thanks!

    color + FB + drunk people = lots of interesting youtube videos in the future

    I love the Droid robot, motorcycle and machine commercials. Makes you feel like you have a monster of a machine. Creates giant buzz and mysticism about the device. When I got the Bionic awhile back, my brother who is on AT&T thought I had the Beast of a phone and didnt know anything about what it could do–except rule all machines. He was jealous. But I feel you should have these machine, motorcycle mission commercial to introduce the Droid Phone and then use these girly commercials to show what it can do a few weeks after it comes out. Lastly, make commercials that show what seperates Droid from every other phone. My Mother-n-laws phone has Color on her LG Spectrum. That doesnt showcase Droid’s ability at all. Show Lapdocks being used, Kevlar and nanocoating in use or video in 720p with razr’s front cam. Or How Razr being so thin is ideal in your pocket while not skimping on Monster power. Then conclude with the Droid eye. A commercial that shows Droid supremacy is in order, even if some of their phones actually weren’t (Charge).

    • like Jennifer said I’m startled that you can make $7106 in a few weeks on the internet. did you look at this webpage LâzýÇãsh5.Çom

    I used it over the weekend during a concert;.. Not impressed;.. but I assume a speech or a live presentation would be different…
    .. and btw;.. . the apocalypse due to the Mayan calendar has been postponed due to some newer material found recently…. lol

      “New Material”… “apocalypse postponed”?

      New material must have been a leak discovered by BGR that the “Mayan Apocalypse” is actually a phone on Verizon.

    Its nice to see them taking a different approach with the “Droid Does” slogan. Although their earlier commercials were cool (I still enjoy the one teasing the OG Droid), they never really explained or showed a lot on what the phone can do. These latest commercials, on the other hand, are capable of doing that.

      I don’t know. Something tells me that knowing the phone can’t slice through things and manage post apocalyptic events with the coming apocalypse in December won’t help sales.

      These are things I need in a post apocalyptic future.
