Motorola Droid Print Ad

I am flipping through Entertainment Weekly magazine issue 1082/1083 and ran across an ad for the Motorola Droid for Verizon Wireless that I thought was a bit off the wall. The ad opens with this line of text:
"Jump from page to page like a caffeinated cricket in a room full of hungry lizards."

O-K, I'm not sure that imagery will make me go out an buy a new phone. Click the graphic to see the ad full size. And if you do decide to buy a Droid after reading the ad, don't forget to also pick up a good case. No need to have all that "grease-dipped lightning" getting all over that beautiful Droid screen.

I agree that this ad is in a bad taste. I've seen better classifieds in Manila featuring different phones. I think they should change the copy of this ad if they want to increase their sales.

This is exactly the point. Sometimes, all you need is a good brochure printing melbourne with enough information inside about the product, and you're done. Sometimes, the public do not need convincing, especially with new technology.
