The first part with the kid, up until, "I have a coloring book" was cute (OK ... so I'm not fond of children, so the idea of putting one ion the cargo hold like a caged animal is, well .... )

Anyhoo.

Then the baggage handlers come in and have to talk. WTF? Why the weird accents? "Is that a talking dog?"

Very annoying. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCR97weqHQY

I've already made a thread on this but the search function leads to nothing.

I HATE THIS COMMERCIAL

I hate the accents too, very annoying "Is that the talking dog?" No you idiot that's a kid in a pet carrier can't you tell the difference?!

I especially want to punch the #%*^ out the stupid idiot who mentions the price of Boost Mobile and what you can save your money on. (The guy on the right, I want to punch his face.)

The other guy just seems to be a Computer nerd with Big teeth..They both have big teeth!! Whats up with that?...  ha HAHAA.....d@MN..

This ad is really stupid. Those guys with the accents are bad actors because they sound so wooden and fake, as if they are reading from cue cards.

BTW, why doesn't anyone call Child Services on the stupid mother? Does she really think that saving a few bucks is more important than her son's life?

Yeah that accent is a little distracting, and that guy with the luggage rack sounds so stiff.

I think they're all supposed to be odd and wooden.  Kinda like that Wrightnow family in the NetFlix commercials.

Yeah, I know it's just a stupid commercial, but besides all of the other things mentioned, a minor detail I observed, is that they resemble moving men more than airline employees.  Neither of the baggage handlers has an I.D. badge on, yet they are loading cargo and baggage into an area to go on the aircraft. Maybe in addition to child protective services, the TSA needs to get involved.  Wink

If I saw these two as baggage handlers I'd get a ticket for another airline.  Any one.  Even if it was Jo-Bob's Airlines & Waffle Hut.

The guy on the left (who talks first of the two) reminded me of the retarded guy on L.A. Law. (was his name, Lenny?) Anyway, I can totally picture this guy in a huge sweatervest.

He reminds me of a bad impersonation of John Candy's character in Vacation.

Considering I worked in conjunction with Children Services in my state for a few years, this ad makes me sick, because it takes me back to cases where kids actually WERE locked in cages.  Boost Mobile can suck it for this commercial.
