SNL Makes Fun of Verizon Fooling People with Acronyms

Saturday Night Life has decided that Verizon’s acronyms are way too much. In fact, they’ve created an entire skit making fun of all of those 4G LTEs and other terms that really mean nothing. What does this have to do with Performance Marketing? Absolutely nothing, unless you realize that viral videos and making fun of things can get you more traffic.

The skit ends, “Nightmare for Old People.” However, after viewing some of Verizon’s regular ads, I haven’t any idea what these things mean, and I’m a bit of a Geek. What exactly is LTE anyway? I thought it meant Light, or Limited or even Long Term Enigma.
