Technology that keeps you a child. That's pathetic.
I guess we are supposed to think that these two brothers never, ever stopped picking on each other, all through childhood, and the "got you" game, which ends for most us long before we even finish High School, for them continued into adulthood.
To the point where they are trying to "get" each other through a video game, which one of them is playing during a Very Important Meeting with Corporate. In other words, while he's supposed to be doing the work he's being paid to perform. (While the other brother, cleverly displaying contrast by sitting on a front stoop in another time zone with scruffy hair and a beard, seems totally oblivious to the fact that his sibling has a career which kind of expects him to put away the toys and the dumb rivalry during office hours.)
This is all supposed to be cute and funny and a reason to buy Verizon or whatever the hell is being pitched to us here. All I see is "buy this, because you are still an infant, and are being allowed to remain so thanks to our technology. Moron."
