It's not Complicated: AT&T shows us a very, very bleak future
A very sad future, too.
After all, if it's going to be populated- and controlled- by creeps like these obnoxious little brats, God help us all. In less than twenty seconds, they manage to give us not one but TWO examples of how they've managed to absorb intensely stupid activities they've seen on the glowing box which is obviously raising them.
At least, I think that's what's happening here. First, the kids go into some kind of dance while contemplating a big, big treehouse. One of the kids says that one benefit to having a big treehouse would be that it could include a "Disco." I'd love to know how any of these kids have any idea what the word "Disco" means. I mean, jeesh, their PARENTS probably don't remember Disco. Yet these kids attempt a mockery of John Travolta's moves in Saturday Night Fever. How the hell do they know what they are doing?
Turns out that they don't want a really big tree house just so they can put a Disco in there.They also want room for a big flat screen tv. (And here's another example of cognitive disconnect- one of these adorable little tots describes having to "hold a wire" to get a picture on the tv. So not only are these kids familiar with disco, they remember rabbit ears, too?)
Oh yes, I remember wanting a tree house when I was a kid- so I could use it to practice dance steps from forty years previous, and watch tv. Uh huh.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure that these kids represent the next generation of pathetic losers whose idea of fun and economic sense is to take the week before Thanksgiving off and use it to camp out on the pavement in front of Wal Mart to score $200 off on a $499 HD TV. At least, I hope so. Because while I detest this kind of behavior from people who are SUPPOSED TO BE CHILDREN, I actually kind of like to mock them once they reach "adulthood." I just wish they would stay off my Not Very Flatscreen television.
