Wozzle Wuzzle? That's what passes for entertainment these days?
I have a real story all though out, but I'm feeling lazy today. Probably from all the snow I've been shoveling this week...
So this is all you get:
Has anyone else seen these Amp'd Mobile commercials? I generally press the mute button... except for last night. Again- lazy.
Incase you don't know- the commercial starts with a "rock-star" looking guy apparently OD'ing in a hotel room. One maid yells at him in Spanish while the other just stands there. They cut to black and you hear a "patooey!" Apparently she spat on him because he's stupid enough to die before this phone comes out.
The other commercial has a little more airplay- a scantily clad hooker violently resuscitating a senator john hanging off the side of a double bed in a cheap hotel room. Again, begging him not to die before he can buy the phone.
Now, I realize growing up American has desensitized me somewhat to television violence, but come on! There's a line. Understandably, they are supposed to be tongue-in-cheek. But to successfully pull that off, it should be funny, no?
There's nothing remotely amusing about opening a commercial with a skinny shirtless pasty man convulsing on the floor.
Am I wrong?
