Privus Mobile and M/C/C Win Telly Award

Privus Mobile’s ‘Harry Sasquatch’ Commercial Wins Telly Award

Dallas – May 6, 2009Privus Mobile, America’s most popular Mobile Caller ID provider, was recently honored with a prestigious Telly Award. Privus Mobile was a Bronze recipient for its first television commercial, “Harry Sasquatch,” in the Telecommunications/Internet Service category. The Telly Awards is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs; the finest film and video productions; and groundbreaking web commercials, videos and films. With over 13,000 entries annually, winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators and corporate video departments in the world.

The commercial, crafted by marketing firm M/C/C, depicts a man being harassed by a sasquatch on his cell phone. Whether at home, in the gym or hanging out with friends, the average Joe can’t seem to rid himself of prank calls from the hairy jokester. After downloading Privus Mobile’s unique Caller ID service onto his cell phone, the man can see Sasquatch’s information and decides against answering the call.

“The ‘Harry Sasquatch’ commercial is an excellent example of Privus Mobile’s Caller ID service, and we are thrilled to have it, and M/C/C, recognized for creativity and effectiveness,” said Privus Mobile President Greg Smith. “The true beauty of the commercial is that it really demonstrates how you can better manage calls to your smartphone. No more looking at that 10-digit number and asking yourself, ‘Should I or shouldn’t I?’ With all the familiarities of landline Caller ID service without the hidden charges, Privus Mobile is an affordable solution for call screeners, business professionals, students and anyone else who likes to know who’s calling.”      

Privus Mobile is now available to more than 225 smartphones on more than 30 international network carriers. Customers can download a free trial on Privus Mobile’s Web site at or by visiting mobile marketplaces like Mobile2Day, Handango, Handmark and BlackBerry App World.
