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!!

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

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.

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.

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".

Anything is possible I suppose. I can only tell you that she (I'll give the benefit of the doubt and assume she is Karen in the video and pic) took the selfie and made the video at my request after a couple of PM exchanges.

I hold no ill will towards Donathan. To me, this internet forum business is all about having fun. Some people have fun differently than others.

OK, I just watched the "Break-up" version of the ad a few times and can list a few things that really, really bothered me - certainly, the vengeful, irrational, out-of-control young woman acting like a three-year-old in public is completely alienating and painful to watch.  Lady, NO ONE CARES that you are mad at your boyfriend.  Case closed.  Throw your tantrum (and all your/his stuff) elsewhere.  The air-mailing of trash onto the public sidewalk is just awful.  After you kill your boyfriend with all that flying debris...who's going to clean up YOUR mess?    

The apartment - at least from the outside - appears to be neglected and dilapidated - peeling paint, gross windows, dead potted plants, and yet the young woman has some pretty nice clothes and electronics (check out the TV that she gazes at so rapturously...that wasn't sent flying out the window, although I'm sure that Errant Boyfriend must have helped her buy it, LOL)  

And even creepier - if you pause it at  about 8 seconds in - there is a baby in a stroller on the sidewalk coming into the picture (look to the right)!  We can only hope that Crazy-Eyed Vengeful Over-Empowered Angry Goddess Of Independence didn't smash the little tyke too.  Horrible, horrible ad!  AngryAngry

ConfusedI thought I saw the same thing and I DO believe it added to the 'creepy *itch'-factor...in any case, anyone who has to throw anything at anyone else should be apprehended and restrained. Or shot on the spot, maybe mildly-muderated, doncha know...

Too bad that someone posting here is ultimately called a racist for pointing out the obvious.  90% of Commercials now feature 90% non=whites and it feels like they bend over backwards to insure that NO white males are in the superior role in the ad.  Towards this ATT ad, they don't dare put a black boyfriend in this role because of the long term stereotype that all black men cheat on their girlfriends.  What they miss on is that they are bolstering the stereotype of angry black women overreacting in over-the-top fashion. And I agree with initial point that the female anncr is awful!  When it comes on, which is several times a day regardless of what channel I have on unfortunately,I cannot grab the frkg remote fast enough.

I'm already weary of this new It's Your Thing campaign from AT&T.  There are plenty of black and/or African-American voiceover artists who do a great job.  (I'm not including Arby's Ving Rhames in this LOL.)  It's the vocal fry I can't stand, and it's really annoying when a black woman is trying to sound like a Valley Girl.  Or vocal fry is so widespread now everyone's doing it!  Angry

Some thoughts from their facebook page...

Great job of totally screwing up DirecTV! Now the "new improved" guide is pathetically slow! It reminds me of first generation receivers from 1996!

AT&T paid $600,000 to gut net neutrality and to push for a merger. They only got half of what they paid for - as far. AT&T SUCKS!

Kinda hard to watch anything when AT&T s data Throttling everyone

Worst service ON THE PLANET!

I see a breach of contract lawsuit coming!

AT&T is blocking Yahoo on my mobile phone

Omfg it is impossible to get my phone upgraded properly w att. WTH. I have spent so much time online chat and phone and in store to get the phone I want and I still don’t have it. This is such a clustereff. They don’t care about my loyalty so not sure why I’m staying these days.... maybe this upgrade needs to go to Verizon. And my daughter’s new phone line too. bc att can’t seem to handle it.

I hate these commercials. Starting with the person doing the voiceover. Hate her voice. I tried to look up who she is and can’t find it. Sounds like a few people. Mainly Queen La Queefa. Or possibly Mohammad Ali’s daughter. I Hate how she keeps saying your thang over and over.

I think it's Lena Waithe, a popular in some circles black comedienne.
