Man gets paid $20 to use Blackberry Storm, Verizon shooting Storm commercial

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:04PM EST

What would you do if you saw a filming crew from Verizon Wireless in the food court of your local mall? Well, if you were like one of our readers, you would mosey on over to get a closer look, get invited to play with the new Blackberry Storm, and then get paid $20 for your time while you watched them film a BlackBerry Storm commercial! That’s right, some cold cash in exchange for some thumb typing. With all the buzz this phone has generated, VZW could have used this opportunity to make some money, not pay out some money. How many of you would shell out $20 to get 10 minutes one-on-one with this new phone? Yeah, we thought so.

Thanks, Bob!
