Have you watched an ad made by Verizon Wireless recently? How far into it did you get before your eyes glazed over and your brain melted from the buzzword salad overload? The ads are so ridiculous at times that it's almost possible to confuse a spoof video made by the folks of Saturday Night Live with the real thing.

Don't believe me? Take a peek at the clip below. Hits a bit close to home, doesn't it?

Though in Verizon's defense, it's not like it's the only wireless company with strange, confusing or buzzword-filled ads. Most carriers are doing their part to bungle the 4G message, and handset maker Samsung recently put out some iPhone-mocking ads which easily earned some ridicule of their own.
