Asian American Commercial Watch: Verizon Tablet “Destination Ad” with Jared Asato

I’ve been seeing this Verizon Tablet ad starring Jared Asato all over the network television, but imagine my surprise when I was flipping through the foreign language channels and caught the exact same ad in Mandarin. Even though I know Jared doesn’t speak Chinese, I was almost fooled into thinking he did the voiceover especially given the lines the actress “speaks.” Then I realized that this ad was brilliantly cut so that the V.O. could be done in any number of languages– including Cantonese and Korean.

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank.
