While most of the country picked a side and cheered for the Patriots or the Seahawks in the Super Bowl last night, I couldn’t have cared less about the game – I was in it for the food, the beer, and the commercials. Tech companies had a big presence this year, as they have had for a while now, and my favorite carrier T-Mobile was no different. And while the Uncarrier had lots of things it could have chosen to highlight about itself, it chose WiFi calling and Data Stash – the company’s new initiative to roll over unused data for up to a year.
While you can say what you want to about Kim Kardashian, I think the Data Stash commercial was pretty clever – but unfortunately, the geniuses at Fox Sports didn’t watch the commercial all the way through to the very end. As you can see from the screen capture above, they think it’s a Verizon commercial – the same carrier who recently said it didn’t feel the need to copy T-Mobile because it didn’t want to compete on price.
Cue the angry tweets from John Legere.
