“Fair for Canada” Parody Takes Swipe at Big Three PR Campaign [VIDEO]


We have all seen the ads from Rogers, TELUS and Bell by now, which plea to Canadians Ottawa is making a mistake with their auction rules, which are seen as unfair and favouring Verizon Wireless.

In response to the recent ‘Fair for Canada’ PR campaign by the Big Three, the Huffington Post points us to a newly released parody video mocking the ad in question, created by YouTube user “robbers.hell.tales”.

Here is the original ad from the ‘Fair for Canada’ campaign:

We’ve seen other public responses to the incumbent PR campaign via the website ‘Real Fair for Canada’, which aims to counter the rhetoric posted by Rogers, TELUS and Bell. Despite the massive budget for advertising their message nationwide, Industry Minster James Moore has said the wireless auction will proceed as planned.

What do you think of this parody video?

    I couldn’t finish watching the “parody” (it’s not a “parody”). Holy crap that was terrible. Embarrassing even.

    To the people who put that together… “We don’t need your kind of help!”

    I’d love to see a more polished parody bashing the big 3 hosers.

  • It definitely appears to be slapped together, but it still is a response.

    I could not agree more, the point of this would be to get a point across this one is not doing it at all!

    Going by that original “Fair for the old news 3” video —- the “employee”???? pictured in every poster like the one above really has been an actor.

    Verizon, hope you’re listening. Are you here yet?

    hell they could of done better with text after each statement on the original.

    When you’re trying to be credible, “an A for effort” just doesn’t cut it. It’s like the people who are against the big 3’s campaign are nothing more than a bunch of babbling, illiterate buffoons. This does more harm than good.

    omg, so cheesy and dumb. I’m all for Verizon, but those voice-overs were horrendous.
