Verizon Guy gets let go, turns out that wasn't his name anyway

Verizon Guy gets let go, turns out that wasn't his name anyway
You won't be able to hear him for much longer, folks. Paul Marcarelli, aka "Verizon Guy," is being let go. As it turns out that wasn't even his character's name, VZW settling on "Test Man" when scripting the early shots. Now that company is "taking its ads in a different direction," a direction that apparently does not include Mr. Marcarelli. But, based on the tales he recounted to The Atlantic, that may be a good thing. Paul once heard someone say "Can you hear me now?" at his grandmother's funeral -- as her body was being lowered into the grave. Yup, it's time for a role change.
