Left Behind

I’ve been meaning to talk about The A-Team for a couple of weeks by now, but I’ve been too busy working on my super-secret Facebook application, amongst doing other things. But just so I don’t go too long without posting something, I’ll post a link to this AT&T 4G video:

Every time I see this commercial, I want to punch that guy in the face.

First of all, if you get something funny on your phone, it’s rude to just crack up, then put your phone away without even explaining to the other people in the car what was so hilarious. Second of all, the way he’s so dismissive at the end of the commercial, when the woman next to him tries to get his attention…Jesus! I would strangle that fucking guy if I were in that car. You can’t even acknowledge that this thing was funny? Two seconds ago, you thought it was the funniest thing in the world, but now it’s so old that anybody who laughs at it is lame?

Fuck you, guy.

Here’s a comment from YouTube:

Of course, the guy who got the message 1st suddenly becomes an elitist asshole with that reaction at the end, with the whole “yeah, yeah” better-than-you attitude.

AT&T: Marketed to condescending pricks.

Glad to know I’m not the only one.

  1. First I was curious about your thoughts on the Left Behind series of books and films. Now I’m curious about your thoughts on The A-Team.

    As for this commercial… I remember laughing the first time I saw it, and I laughed when I watched it again here. Heh.

    Sure, it’s a dumb commercial and I can agree with your philosophical stance against the very intentions of the marketing scheme, but give credit where credit is due: That main actor is funny.

  2. I actually don’t know anything about the Left Behind series except that I think it’s fiction for crazy Christians who think that Armageddon is coming.

    A-Team, since I may never get around to talking about it: I liked it. It was a good action film.

    I guess he’s funny. He’s also a good actor in that he he very convincingly plays a total dickwad.

  3. DICKWAD. yes.
    Left Behind, isn’t that an episode on LOST, too, 3rd season maybe?

    does the mysterious FB app have anything to do with leaving it to chance in your pants?
