I was recently shopping the Cingular website for a new plan and I saw this image.
At first glance, you see two loving sisters enjoying their brand new RAZR phone. But what you don’t see is that 13 seconds later, a fight broke out because Sister2 wanted her turn with the phone and Sister1 wasn’t done yet so she hit Sister2 in the face with the phone and then took a picture of the bloody mess and emailed it to her friend Keisha.
Their mother spends all of her money on matching sweaters and she can’t afford two cell phones for the girls.
Then there is the whole Verizon campaign where a big crowd of people follows you everywhere you go and this somehow makes your cell phone better. I would think you could just turn around and talk to all those people and you wouldn’t need a cell phone all. Maybe they are waiting for you to put down your phone so they can steal it. Maybe having a cell phone makes you the next great prophet.
Or maybe the network sucks so bad that you need a crowd of people following you around to fix it all the time. I don’t know what it all means. Just don’t follow me.
