Know how Verizon has these really clever commercials where the employees are all following the person using their phone? Because, you know, so many people are all working to make sure that your Verizoning experience is exactly what you hope it will be, and so much more?
Yeahhhh, it's actually not all that new of an idea. Check out this ad that I found while I was working today:
Gasp! It's been done!
600,000 Bell Telephone People were coming out of people's telephones even back in 1950, Helping to Get Things Done. Who knew?! Verizon, probably.
(This is from the 18 November 1950 issue of Collier's. Which is my new favorite magazine. I think I would have been good at the 1950's.)
I also found another AMAZING advert, but it was in color and was taking too long to email, so it'll have to wait until tomorrow.
