Advertising for Dummies: Verizon jumps the shark (2016)

While Verizon employees are on strike over the telecommunications giant outsourcing jobs overseas, the company is continuing with their lame ad campaign about a "better network".

After a series of spots with British funnyman Ricky Gervais, Verizon recruited 30 Rock cast members Jane Krakowski, Judah Friedlander, and Jack McBrayer for this ad, poking fun at internet streaming issues.

McBrayer has kept busy since 30 Rock signed off, working on an [adult swim] series with Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog, and voicing the title character in DisneyXD's Wander Over Yonder.
