Make Fun, Get Taken Over

If you’re not current on the tech news of the times, last week AT&T bought T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom for $39 billion. Yeah, the world’s going down in flames. That’s not the point of this post though, the point is if you make a commercial that makes fun of a larger wireless carrier you will be purchased by that wireless carrier. Need proof? Check below.

Not even a few months after Alltell started airing these commercials Verizon bought them.

THEN, T-Mobile makes these MyTouch 4G commercials dissing AT&T and then they get bought by AT&T. This is the classic case of “make fun of the bigger guy and the bigger guy will buy you out.”

I’m surprised Verizon didn’t try to buy AT&T before…

Maybe after the T-Mobile takeover is complete, AT&T, which will be the nation’s largest carrier by far, will try to buy Verizon.
