Wieden+Kennedy's New Verizon Campaign Is a Majestic Metaphorical Mash-Up

Wieden+Kennedy Portland, 2 years, 1 month ago

Humorous campaign from Portland and New York offices features 12 new spots

Wieden+Kennedy's New Verizon Campaign Is a Majestic Metaphorical Mash-Up

Wieden+Kennedy Portland has launched ‘Better Matters’ for Verizon, a mammoth 12-spot campaign that highlights the importance of quality mobile phone signal by using a series of metaphorical situations. 

The campaign’s flagship film features a minute’s worth of footage of different everyday objects breaking. The rest of the films use different situations to humorously highlight product quality, such as a French scuba diver discussing his breathing apparatus and a fellow school student examining the relationship of the school’s hottest couple.
