I've been seeing this a lot lately. So many camera cuts and action it could cause seizures! Of course it has many of the prerequisites to appeal to millennials and average people.

You got your black female voice over. You got non white people all over the place. (I actually counted, and of all the "main" characters in the ad, 3 are white and 8 are non white. The guy on the rocket bike was hard to tell, so I didn't count him). You got a fat person doing her "thing". Of course, you have the smug, swaggering black girl football player who presumably whooped the boys' buts' (guurrrlll power Thumbs Down). You got the cute animals and cute kids. You got the "hip" techno style music. All designed to appeal to the masses and make more money for the corporate giant at&t. As if they're not rich enough. Cry

WTF!? How does a twenty something call this 'good music'!? Hell I was a twenty something and I never considered this crap great music. I do like some trance and techno music such as Aurora Borealis's "Milky Way" (Lunatic Acid Mix) and Slyder's "Score" but not random crap such as this.

Keep seeing different new versions of this "Your Thing" crap. It just gets under my skin.

At first I thought it was SNL Leslie Jones narrating it, but after seeing Kimmel a few nights ago I'm fairly sure its this actress Lena Waithe (I never heard of her - or this "The Chi" show)



ALL of these cell phone commercials from Verizon, ATT Sprint's d-bag Paul - to the loud blaring music / noise on the actual phones for iPhone and especially the new Samsung phone ads are just horrific!!

The only thing I like about her is the "3" on her hat. Kinda reminds of the 3 of WFSB from 1985 to 1993. Simple and modern. Sorta miss it.

These commercials are really pissing me off! Angry  And what is it with all of the adholes out there today?

Do they really think that if they use a (woman or a man) with a heavy ghetto funk dialect it's really gonna get me to buy their services?  F*ck No!!  Angry  If I didn't already hate AT&T, these commercials would stop me from doing business with them.

Black chick throwing out her white cracker boyfriend?  Shocked  I guess she decided to go back to black.

I know what you're thinking.  I want to share with you that the rumor is not necessarily true.  One day a few months ago while I was driving on a residential street toward home, at the corner of an intersection a kerfuffle occurred.  I had already seen some black guy running on the sidewalk, and two police officers were yelling at him to stop, and chasing him.  When he got to the intersection, a cop tried grabbing him by his clothes and the guy, who had to be high on something, immediately took off his clothes, including his pants, and he wasn't wearing any underwear.  It sounds funny perhaps, but it was a sad scene as to how ugly people can get when they're out of control.  A cringe-worthy spectacle. Anyway, that rumor, I was unfortunate enough to have had to see, is not true, at least in this case.  Ouch

I hate this commercial too!

Better idea...she throws the TV and it crushes the ex! When the cops come by...she makes a sob story and they watch TV!

The little bitch is a living, breathing endorsement for domestic violence.

Just for throwing his guitar on the sidewalk, she deserves a boot in the ass.

If not her, then the dickless little worm who thought that was cute enough to be a TV commercial.

Once again, just imagine if they showed a guy treating a female that way.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I thought the one that said "furbaby" was as bad as it could get then they roll this one out, great job AT&T endorsing being an unreasonable destructive asshole that treats the public sidewalk like a garbage can without any context for her actions, for all we know her bf questioned some conspiracy theory of hers and she went nuts.

I'm thinking maybe she found out that he did her mother and sister at the same time and didn't invite her to join in.

I think what AT&T means by "any talk is good talk" is that their engineers are so desperate to get their network to work, that they'll take anything.   Even a garbled mess.  Dead

ShockedAngryI had not seen this commercial and just watched it in this post.
I'm still in total, flu-like shock - I REALLY DO NOT LIKE this commercial or the subtle messages it sends. After watching it (and I had to watch it *3* times to be SURE)...THIS commercial bring racism or maybe even 'gay hate', possibly BOTH back into the picture. In my books, it turns the clock back and just makes me sick.

Unfortunately, AT&T probably thinks it is a "women's empowerment" message and they just threw in the couple (soon to be uncoupled) as interracial to be trendy.  Do they not think it makes the black woman look like a crazy shrew? What if it were reversed:  a man, any man, throwing a woman's stuff out the window to the unlucky woman, any race?

Somebody ought to point that out to AT&T.

Even though it would probably just go in one ear and out the other.

AT&T doesn't have any ears (which is a useful thing otherwise they'd have to endure their own crappy service!)
 
They do however have multiple asses.  (Specifically including their entire management.)
So, it would be more correct to say "In one ass and out the other".

I was under the impression that Donna was a gay male in his mid-20's.
Guess I wasn't paying much attention.
