Verizon Droid Commercial — 48 Hours with Ed Norton

Just your average karaoke-blasting, great escaping, ferret-winning 48-hours with Edward Norton and his Droid Smartphone.

Rock Paper Scissors editor Adam Pertofsky cuts a heart-racing: 90 for Verizon via mcgarrybowen to promote the new Motorola Droid Maxx. “48 Hours” opens with Academy-award winning actor Edward Norton awaking suddenly in a hospital morgue. The spot gradually grows darker as Norton recounts the preceding 48 hours – an incredible series of events that starts with the discovery of a lost wallet and culminates in a life-or-death Connect Four match with the mob.
