ok - so I'm now seeing not one but two AT&T Commercials featuring an uber-perky brunette with big eyes and a quirky personality who bears a strong resemblance (appearance, style, and mannerisms) to Toyota's over exuberant customer service gal, Jan. At first I thought it was a "one off" when I first saw the "Yay Love" commercial and wrote it off to a coincidence and nothing more. The lo and behold, Lily (that charming cheery chipmunk) shows up in a second AT&T commercial. Yes, she is now fast becoming the new Jan. And soon we will see her be-dimpled shiny face on every channel, getting into odd situations with clients which are meant to be funny but come off slightly obnoxious. Even her cheerleader voice is irritating, Why can't companies just make commercials that sell their product instead of trying to make a star out of the actor/actress with their mundane sketches?

You're kinda late to the party, I think. Lily's been the AT&T spokeswoman for like the past 2 years, lol. There's been several threads on her various commercials here in the past, along with a decent percentage of the male posters expressing an interest in getting service from Lily that has nothing to do with the phone.

I guess maybe they're going for the "Flo/Progressive" thing.  That is, if you don't automatically remember the name of the company, maybe some interesting spokesman will help.
 
I don't know if that's been successful, though.  While I think of Progressive when I think of Flo (two words that go together at this point), for some reason I keep thinking Lily is with Best Buy.  Maybe it's the blue shirt and the fact that Best Buy sells phones, too.

Or maybe it's because they are both evil shape-shifting wallet suckers??
 
Lily's cute and all, but she works for the deathstar company.
Therefore, I know it's just a facade and soon as you get her home, she eats your face or something.
 
BTW:  +1 to the person who posted "uber-punky" earlier in the thread.
That description nails it.

Difference is "Lily" is hot while "Jan" is just a square-faced annoyance. I'd "upgrade" my "phone" with "Lily" anyway! (nudges you all with elbow)

I like Lily, she's kittenish. Seems like the type who under her ATT threads is a tight little gymnast's body and she'd be the type that would take sex to a new dimension. Of course she'd be the type that would go awww to cute cuddly puppies and kittens. If you give her a foot rub. My kind of girl. Her real name is

Milana Vayntrub and she's from the Russian/Ubekistan area.

And here is my kittenish beauty looking hot. I told you she's a little minx!
I approve this message.

^  I Googled what I could see of that magazine title---"eed world".  Apparently, it's Weed World, and doesn't seem to be about crab grass and dandelions.
 
Looks like it's this issue:

Yeah, I have to admit, they hit the jackpot when they signed "Lily". It is, in fact, no wonder, that this site, acclaimed for it's universal derision of all things commercial-wise, draws the line at throwing shade at "Lily". She's impervious. Flo and Jan are fodder.

I want to see AT&T put her in a commercial looking like this...



That would get people to sit up and take notice.

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

Well that IS a picture of her.

I'd just like to see them put her in a AT&T commercial in that get up.

I dunno, if I was faced with the curvy cutie and her bubbly attitude that could be misinterpreted as flirtatious, I might say dumb things and run into walls too. LOL

Maybe.. but never turn your back on her.
She works for the "Deathstar Company".  (See: AT&T's logo, the resemblance is disturbing!)
 
On the bright side, if AT&T's proposed merger with Time-Warner goes through, maybe Lily can replace Wolf Blitzer on CNN. 
Now wouldn't THAT be a welcomed change?
 
The news won't get any better, but nobody will really care!  Big smile

Lily = good and easy on eyes
Jan = overly artificial/insect like/ really poor writing(yes worse than ATT--imagine THAT)
Flo=landlocked manatee with hair/make up from the 50s/cronies abuser
