New AT&T commercial fires back at Verizon [Video]

It’s funny how a seemingly innocuous 30 second commercial about 3G cell coverage can ruffle so many feathers.  2 weeks ago, AT&T sued Verizon over a commercial which it claims paints an inaccurate and misleading picture regarding AT&T’s nationwide cellphone coverage.

Earlier today, a Federal Judge denied AT&T’s request for an injunction that would have forced Verizon to stop airing the commercial in question.  AT&T still has some fight left, though, and the legal proceedings will kick back into action on December 14th.

In the meantime, AT&T scrapped together a commercial of its own and took a few jabs at Verizon in the process.  And they even managed to dredge up an overweight Luke Wilson in the process!
