A Public Service message from your local Mark of the Beast provider
“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:18 (KJV)
A gate opens, and little balls of four different colors roll out along four separate tracks. A voice-over explains that each of the four tracks denote a major cellular network (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile) and the balls represent the state wins each of those networks received in an independent study conducted by RootMetrics. But by the end of the spot, we see something quite different from mere metrics.
While touting the benefits of their mobile wireless service, Verizon ends their commercial with a pile of glowing red balls next to three descending sixes as shown in the graphic at the top of this article. But I am sure that’s just a massive coincidence. You will notice also that while there are 4 equally shaped circles, the first one is obscured by the red balls to not appear as a 6, while the other three are highlighted to make sure they appear as sixes.
As someone who has worked on high-level corporate marketing campaigns at the Fortune 500 level, let me assure you that when this spot was being created they knew exactly what they were making. Every top level exec at Verizon that approved it was well aware of the 666 so blatantly featured.
“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:2 (KJV)
The Bible tells us that in the end times, the Devil “controls the air”, so perhaps Verizon wireless was just being truthful this time around.
Can you hear me now?
