Better than “If pigs could fly…” I guess

I’ve had an AT&T iPhone for several years now, and I must confess, the service in Boston and New York has been pretty poor. Dropped calls, weak signals — the usual complaints. Which is why I found this ad in the San Francisco airport amusing:

If there were a fantasyland, AT&T would have great coverage

“If There Really Were a Camelot, AT&T Would Have You Covered.”

I presume the intent of the ad was to imply that AT&T could provide coverage anywhere. But an equally valid interpretation is: If Camelot were real, then AT&T would have great coverage — but since it isn’t, they don’t. Like the phrase, “If pigs could fly, I could make calls reliably in Harvard Square.”

Memo to the irony department.

But the iPhone camera works great. 😉

  1. So that’s why Verizon and Sprint have not had much successes entering imaginary markets… My nephew (age 5) has an imaginary friend who gets great reception on ATT. He swears by it, I am told. It all makes sense now.
