Thanks, T Mobile. I can die now that I am totally lost.
The only way this commercial makes any sense at all is if we have finally reached the day I kind of thought we would get to within a few years anyway: The day where it's perfectly reasonable to believe that someone would "send like a hundred texts," get no response regardless of the urgency of the messages, yet never once actually use her phone to MAKE A PHONE CALL.
The woman in this ad fell off her bike and broke her arm, but still found it more convenient to text her boyfriend instead of calling him. She got to the hospital and texted him again. She needed a ride home, and texted him again. She just kept texting and texting. From the dialogue in this ad, it never even occurred to her to JUST STOP TEXTING AND DIAL HIS FREAKING NUMBER YOU BRAINLESS DUMBASS!!
Maybe they aren't the kind of "friends" who can actually talk on the phone. Seems kind of odd, if she was expecting him to rush to the hospital and give her a ride home. Plus, he calls her "baby." Maybe I just don't get Relationship Etiquette in 2013. That's plausible.
Still- "send like a hundred texts" and not a single actual call made? Oh wait- are there cell phones that don't have calling options anymore? No, no- I'm not that far behind the curve...am I?
And by the way, what kind of contract doesn't allow you to actually replace a broken phone? I thought all phone companies spent their time trying to get us to "upgrade" our perfectly GOOD phones- this guy is working with a company that won't LET him swap out a BROKEN one?
Seriously. What the hell?
