I've found her... the voice we've all been bitching about. Her name is Lena Waithe. I'm just going to leave this here.

Ive hated this commercial since day one, mostly because of the black womans voice, saying that’s your thing, that’s our thing. But have you noticed, the newest versions have this woman’s voice toned down so she’s not as obnoxious. The dialogue is just as obnoxious.

What it really is about though is that in most crack houses and trap house the addicts and dealers there have blown to there credit with the local cable affiliates so ATT knows that they have to just as to their audience because their service becomes costly after their introductory rate runs out and some will pay and others will have to pay it later if they get their lives together and buet a house and they'll pay the bill they defaulted on when they were smoking crack!!!
It's only racism when it insults black people that's my thank.
WinkIf these were different days, I might want to pick a fight over your post...but times have changed and, having been active in civil rights in the past, I'm disgusted with behaviors that have evolved on all sides, these days. I don't expect people to know who I am, who my wife was, much less what we accomplished - but I know this: I didn't sign up or stand for the new style of reverse-discrimination & segregation I keep encountering and the weak efforts to stem the tide. I worry for my children and grandchildren, these days. Depending upon the blinders people wear is what people see and I know those in the upper economic levels do not see what is really happening, no matter if they grew up in it. Often, it is those who are becoming part of the problem - and quite often, not consciously.

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 can't complain but sometimes I still do.

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...
And it creates the question of who would be stupid enough to push a stroller anywhere near that dangerous display of bat scat insanity???ConfusedConfused (double confused)

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

Great.  That background music is almost as bad as the voiceover lady with the vocal fry, or is that the other way around? Confused Unhappy

What's with the stupid changes in the design of the logo? Are they trying to ripoff the 1980s MTV logo variations?

None of these stupid "ideas" are original!

I get BS junk mail from AT&T a couple times a week, It pisses me off so much I called them.  Some foreign f*cktard didn't understand what I wanted.  Leave me alone!

While I agree with you here I think his point was how politically correct they are. I don't really get bothered by how many black people there are in a commercials so maybe he is a racist.

Look closer.  It's a fur hoodie with teddy bear ears.  And claws on the cuffs.  Gotta be a weird story about cosplay going seriously wrong there somewhere...   LOL

I'm not that great with the current crappy music of today, but I do know this "3" is some kind of logo for Chance The Rapper. But when it comes to commercials, he was in that goofy Kit Kat ad.



I don't even know what the 3 means - guess I can look it up but I just don't care. 

You can now own a "3" hat for just.....um....
..$40.00! ConfusedSleepy🤔

I remember this Mink Stole my mom used to have. It was creepy! It had paws and claws and a head with teeth! It scared the bejesus out of me.
