Queen and Verizon Think You Should Want It All in New Commercial
"I want it all / I want it now." That's not only a lyric to a Queen song, it's also something frequently said by children during the holidays. Verizon FIOS' new holiday campaign brings both of these ideas together in a new commercial, which you can watch above.
In the ad, titled 'I Want It All,' a family is preparing for Christmas when their laptops, video games and mobile devices -- some of which are still wrapped -- are suddenly taken over by Queen's hit song. The family congregates in the living room to figure out what happened to all their electronics.
The narrator then goes on to explain that Verizon FIOS allows you to have everything you want at very fast speeds as part of a special deal they're offering this time of year.
'I Want It All' appeared on Queen's 1989 album 'The Miracle.' The song reached No. 3 in the U.K. and No. 50 in the U.S. It turned out to be the last Queen song released in Freddie Mercury's lifetime to reach the Billboard Hot 100.
