After nine years, Verizon is changing its advertising tactics, and pitchman Paul Marcarelli, the "Test Man" famous for the line, "Can you hear me now?" has been freed to move on.

"Don't feel bad for me, but I'm definitely glad that chapter is over," he told The Atlantic. While he made millions during that time, his contract kept him from pursuing some other projects of interest, and even inhibited him about talking much to the media.
