Hey,
I am noticing since the "we're with you" campaign is MTS replacing Morty and his friends with people now? Seen quite a few of the new ads and was wondering. Thanks.

A lot of ad strategies change over the years.  Have you noticed that you have seen less of Ronald McDonald over the years.  The A&W Root Bear has been replaced by the store manager

Good question, Gordon, 
Morty isn't being replaced by people, no. He is just on holidays! If you look closely you'll see him here and there in some of the ads. Let me know if you happen to see him. ;)

It might be time for Morty to retire if there is a new campaign that makes sense. The bison adds in various forms go back over 15 years from my estimates.

Morty does work so hard. If he does need to retire I do understand.

I was doing a little online research and the the last time Morty was on "vacation" he was away for about 18 months.
