I dont know Weather To Laugh or Cry
Anyone else seen the latest Phones 4 U Advert??

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCnWIzAp8lk&feature=related

I have to admit at first it did make me chuckle, but now im not sure how to feel about it?
Do i laugh at the stereotype of Larpers/Cosplayers?
Do i get offended by them suggesting we have no friends?
Do i raise hell in the local the Phones 4 U store in a cardboard suit of Armour?

what do you think?

I think you should get as many people as you can dressed up in cardboard warriors at a store. That would be awesome! And it would show them cardboard people have loads of friends/allies!

I think you should get exactly 50 people (plus yourself) dressed in cardboard gundams just to prove you have 50 friends
and dont forget to make your own Midi music

...flashmobbing a Phones 4U as cardboard Gundams! I'd totally join if this really happens!


30 Oct 2009 - 18:0321548
XD I think it does need to be done.

But I thought I'd read somewhere that they'd banned this series of ads. Evidently not, which pisses me off. I have better things to do than stuff my phone full of numbers of people I don't know to get "better" phone deals. *eyeroll*

I think they're having a go at LARPers more than cosplayers. So they're fair game.

still i think a 25 a side Cardboard Gundam Battle Royal in P4U sounds like fun

That advert really pisses me off. cosplay is an art form which creates the best freinds imaginable, they look good and no bad (you know the kind of person i mean) person could be a cosplayer. i feel offended by the advert.

stocks up on cardboard for our planned invasion.

I think they banned the Scouts one, cause they're an organised group and wrote many letters of complaint.

The moving face bits really cracked me up, so much fun.

I think the moving chin is awsum and i think those costumes are awsum

I got ridiculed cos i said I liked it but I didn't like the message

my sis: ha its that thing you do

me: yeah <3

my sis: that sez your sad

me (thinking)- at least I didn't count my contacts to see if I had 50

I think p4u choose something cos they thought it wasn't popular which just goes to show how badly they do market research- go storm the shop! and show me the evidence cos i would love a chuckle

The advert doesn't really bother me; actually I think it's kind of entertaining.

Funnily enough, I think in all their adverts the people who allegedly aren't "popular people" are usually doing something pretty impressive. Like that one where the guy throws ping pong balls into flasks or the two yo-yo guys.
