This TV ad promoting Verizon’s Droid DNA phone is weird, cringe-worthy and also promotes something else: Transhumanism. Indeed, the ad does not only sell a smartphone. Not unlike movies and music videos, it normalizes the concept of “upgrading” humans by merging them with machines.

While most of us already entertain a somewhat unhealthy, dependent relationship with our cellphones, this ad makes things creepier by showing the device completely modifying the user’s body and genetic makeup. Yes, it is “only a commercial”, but all of the concepts behind it are real and will be available to a very rich and limited public very soon. Here’s the ad.

The ad takes place in some kind of transhumanist lab where the “Droid DNA Augmentation” process begins. Right from the start, we hear the usual vocabulary associated with transhumanism such as “augmentation”, “upgrade” and so forth. Many people believe that the human body is the most advanced machine on Earth. Not transhumanists.

We then see the guy's DNA makeup being transformed into a black, artificial, robotic DNA string.When connected to the phone, the guy’s DNA makeup changes into a black, artificial, robotic DNA string. Was that included in his 3 year contract with Verizon?

 

While showing some kind of robot stuff being shot right in the guy's veins, we hear "neuro-speeds increased to 4G". Isn't that a little creepy and invasive procedure to get a new cell phone?Something is then shot right in the guy’s veins. Meanwhile, we hear “neuro-speeds increased to 4G”. Yes, they do love “shooting” or inserting things into our bodies under the guise of “its good for you” in order to better monitor and control us.

 

While scientists are supervising the procedure, we hear "brain upgraded to a Quad Core processor". Really? Our brains are inferior to a Quad Core processor, which will be totally obsolete in about 10 months? Didn't know our brains were Pentium 4's. While scientists are supervising the procedure, we hear “brain upgraded to a Quad Core processor”. Really? Are our brains inferior to a Quad Core processor, a technology that will be totally obsolete in about 10 months? Didn’t know our brains were Pentium 4′s.

The ad ends with a purely transhumanist slogan: “It’s not an upgrade to your phone, its an upgrade to yourself”. Yes. And then, if they don’t like you, they’ll just re-format your Quad-Core processor brain and re-install a better version of you. Go transhumanism!

  1. lol is that why they have the Hal eye at the end of the commercial ? xD This reminds me of the advent of modern classical music, like Shostakovich, where the “Party” heard the triumphant march of the proletariate and workers army, while the average person on the street heard the impending downfall of the party apparatus. hmmn. It’s all in the eye of the beholder I guess.
