T-Mobile Trolled Verizon's Earnings Call This Morning With a 'Drinking Game'
by Tom Huddleston, Jr.
T-Mobile is taking its trolling game to a new level.
Proving that there's really no type of shade like telecoms industry quarterly earnings shade, T-Mobile launched a sardonic shot against the bow of its largest rival this week by inventing a drinking game poking fun at Verizon's so-called "boring" earnings call.
T-Mobile - currently the third-largest mobile carrier in the U.S., behind Verizon and AT&T - on Wednesday unveiled its "Verizon Earnings Call Drinking Game," which encouraged anyone who tuned in for the company's quarterly investors webcast to take a drink of "your beverage of choice" anytime Verizon executives mentioned words like "millennials" or "the young people."
