You May Be Standing In A Soup Line, But AT&T Is Investing In America

There’s a new cause in America and the cause is us. We’re bigger than all the NRAs, Greenpeaces, and PETAs combined. We’re Americans and we need help.
Which is why AT&T is Investing In America, with a little help from BBDO/New York.

The telcom is putting billions of dollars into network infrastructure, creating high-tech jobs and investing in American’s green technology. Which is great because I pay AT&T in the neighborhood of $125/month for two cell phones and I want to see my money put to good use by an upstanding corporate citizen, even if it’s all a ruse to get us to buy.
