Memphian to appear in Super Bowl ad for Cellular South

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - It was a video contest like no other: Cellular South wanted to hear from its customers about how they rely on the company's network.

Jeremy Park, who moved to the Mid-South from Los Angeles, thought his story was pretty good.

"How funny is it that I have to live in Memphis and switch phones to go back to LA to get coverage?" he asked.

In a video he submitted for the contest, Park talked about how he lived in Los Angeles and had terrible coverage at his home.  When he came to the Mid-South and switch providers, he said, he noticed a huge improvement when he went back west to visit friends.
 
"We drove by slow at the stop sign where my phone always dropped the call. It worked," he said. "Pull in the driveway...it worked." 

Cellular South loved Park's story, deciding to use it and other customers documenting their experiences in a regional advertisement scheduled to air during the Super Bowl.

"Three stories that were very compelling, that would translate very well into a commercial and the message they were trying to get across," Park said.

In addition to Park, customers from the Mississippi cities of Cleveland and Jackson will appear in the ad.  Cellular South is not saying whether the commercial will air during pre-game or the actual game itself.
