As if I need another reason to add to all the times in which I could have put a realtor through a non-load bearing wall...

First several times I saw this I thought they were a group of news anchors for some reason. Probably because I was barely paying attention, and the music cue sounds like something off a news show.

I just don't understand these. What's with the pause and pose? Is this supposed to be funny? Where's the humor? At least the other ones, like being quiet for the baby, make a little sense and are VERY mildly amusing, but his one is just blame annoying and obnoxious!

Yeah, I don't get it. Is that supposed to be like some universal realtor pose that we're supposed to know or something?

It's the "badass" pose commonly used in TV show promos by the main character(s) at the end.  But in this commercial, and of course as the general rule goes in adland, the limp dick emasculated male in the group isn't qualified/allowed to do it along with the women.

I know what you're referring to, and this doesn't seem like the same thing to me. To me, the realtors don't appear to be doing this sorta posing:

I'm sure the target audience is decades younger than us. I can no longer process these flashing images. By the time I figure one out, two or three more have been displayed!

You know what I love about all y'all? Not one of you has capitalized realtor and put a stupid-ass "registered" symbol after it, like they do in my local paper. 

God® I hate that.

The wife (a broker and REALTOR®) and I get a laugh at this stupid spot for several reasons.
1. Presumably the woman in front is the lead broker, but it's not up to an agent or a broker to determine when to close. That's up to the closing attorney. I suppose "Let's put in an offer!" wouldn't have the same effect in the spot.
2. That logo on their blazers is pretty much identical to the one used by HUD for their "equal housing opportunity" program and really wouldn't be used by an agency.
C. 10gb of shared data a month is nothing at a real estate office, unless you don't plan to use it for the other 29-30 days.

Plus all the other reasons mentioned above

Nor have any of us called them "Realators" like I have even heard some realtors call themselves

^Yes, "Realators", I've heard that too!
Kind of like "nukulor". Wink

Hated this commercials from the very first viewing.

It weirds me out right from the start- what do you suppose the implication is of the lead Alpha lady "real-a-tor" with her hand gesture (all fingers touching) and the AT&T supervisor Lily doing exactly the same hand gesture? Is it some kind of secret hidden code like they're all in the Illuminati or something? (And that's why lone eunuch male to the side doesn't get it or even speak?)

Also think that maybe the "lady" to the far right might be a transsexual.

This commercial does suck, but it doesn't enrage me like so many others for some odd reason. I think maybe because I think the lead realtor looks a lot like an older Lily Adams, and so I'm always looking for resemblances.

As far as what AT&T is getting at with the pose; I'm not sure, but I can speculate. And, what I think it is is AT&T are where all the hip salespeople are at, and they're so good at what they do, they can hoodwink an entire group of stodgy old realtors; stuck in the past, while also making said realtors think they're the ones "closing" the deal.

That makes sense, good theory. Lily is cute.. and clever.
The less arrogant she is the more I find her kind of engaging (as in a new one I just saw with her in the food court. Then again, I haven't seen it in full yet).

I think maybe Lily Adams might be the reason why I don't completely hate that commercial. She's dreamy.
