Verizon Can Take a Sick Kid to School

Verizon has a new campaign called “Powerful Answers.” The TV spots are very similar to ones ran by GE and Duracell, where the company has an important (maybe greater) role in your life through its products. One such claim in the new adverts is the ability to take a sick kid to school. Watch the ad here.

There are many storylines in the ad, but the sick kid is an example of how people are dumb about technology. A wireless laptop with webcam or iPad does 99% of what the sick kids needs. 100% if you agree the sick kid doesn’t need to roll around. So, why does he need to roll around? Can’t a friend take him to the next class? Don’t elementary school kids stay in one classroom all day, why does the invention roll anyway?
