Another Talking Bag of Rocks, brought to us by AT&T
I'm consistently amazed at AT&T's ability to find the most unlikeable people to "star" in their commercials for Talk and Data Plans Which Let You Blather On and On and On Forever About Nothing. Then again, what could possibly be likeable about anyone who would take advantage of an "offer" like this?
This woman has landed a bit part in a bit movie- "customer number four" or something like that- so she's decided to drive everyone around her insane by yapping away about it to anyone who will listen and, probably, to a great many people who won't. So she's polluting the air as she walks down the street with her "check out how awesome I am" cluelessness. She's driven away the other gym patrons with her utter asshattery. She's at the laundromat, letting everyone within earshot of her horrible, grating voice know that she's a swollen-headed blabbermouth who has no idea how idiotic she looks. She fails to give us what we want and just drop the damned phone into the bathtub and destroy it (wouldn't that be bliss?) And then she's in bed, indulging in her "I'm a real actress so I get to be all pretentious about this are you still there?" nonsense. And we get to witness it all.
Thanks, AT&T, for hiring pretty much every mentally disturbed motor mouth in the world to appear in your awful ads. They don't make us want to buy your product, but they do provide us with the comfort of knowing they are all in the same place, at least- and that place is far away from where I am. Just one thing- you haven't found them all yet. There are plenty of subjects to appear in future commercials, right down the street from me, on the subway, in the stores, etc. Shall I give them your number- that is, if I can get them to put down their phones long enough to pay attention?
