We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: Nothing chills the blood quite like smartly dressed children, and this “Dead Zone” ad from Verizon proves it. We’re pretty sure the inspiration for the spot came from The Shining, not The Dead Zone, and that the creepy kids were girls, not boys. But that’s artistic license for you. Besides, having two extra weird bow-tied children around isn’t a big deal for this guy, considering the mob of Verizon workers already living in his enormous house. We’re just lucky they didn’t stage the killing of a competitor with an axe.
