In this tongue-in-cheek promo for the Twice the Price Store, a local business owner boasts about his brilliant idea--a store that charges you twice as much for everything, conveniently located right next to Verizon where “you’re already paying twice as much” as you would for Sprint.

The promo is replete with customer testimonials as these folks are glad to get rid of their money.

Part of the “Don’t Get Hooked” campaign created by Droga5 New York for Sprint, the promo plays like an authentic local TV ad, which leads people to an actual store in Flushing, Queens--a store right next to Verizon, that looks like it was inspired by Verizon, and it charges you twice as much. The grand opening gained consumer and local/regional press coverage.

The promo film was directed by Rami Hachache of production house PRETTYBIRD.
