Anyone else disgusted by the sprint iphone 6 commercial?

Somehow Hulu plays this for me everytime I'm watching something. $50 a month and being locked in, check. Cutting edge phone that most people don't need, check. Fake high pitched conversation and materialistic screaming, check. Ugh!

Seriously, I refuse to watch any distribution channel that has ads or has ads i cant block somehow. This commercial is no more irritating than any other, its simply an awful ad like the rest of em.

Every once in a while I'll see an ad (by clicking on a link or being somewhere with a TV on) and I'll be reminded just how incredibly obnoxious most advertising is. I can't believe I used to watch hundreds of them a week without going insane.

Oh trust me it's WAY more irritating. I hate watching ads too and would not see them if DH didn't insist on watching some shows online as they come out instead of waiting for netflix but this one in particular makes me want to break the computer

Depending on how you feel about tv show piracy you could fix that problem.

I was surprised it took so long for someone to post about this*.  That "woo girl" screaming gives me an instant headache.

*edit:  I suppose that's a good sign - maybe that most mustachians have been more successful than I at freeing themselves from the bonds of TV.

For an actual unlimited data plan, $50/month isn't bad - after taxes it might be a bit more expensive than the $60 MetroPCS plan, depending on where you live. The problem is that they've only decided to offer it on an iPhone... Well, unless you were in Chicago or Minneapolis and signed up during the trial phase, when it was open to any phone. The plan itself is actually no-contract, like the T-Mobile postpaid plans.

The advertisement is terrible, though - both with the screaming and for a different reason - it seems to imply that the "iPhone for life" or some kind of phone flexpay plan is tied to the plan. It's not - the only requirement is that you have a Sprint iPhone 6 (which, I wonder if they'll let you do an ESN change after you activate the thing and throw another phone onto the plan).

The only ads I see are the one I intentionally want to look at. No TV, subscription streaming service with no ads, ad-block, and spam-blocker.

There's a lot of stupid consumerism out there. It sure feels nice to not be exposed to it.

I had to watch a commercial before it would let me watch the commercial.

I HATE that commercial. Not only is what they are selling idiotic but it is incredibly sexist!

I honestly haven't seen a TV commercial in months.  The last time I saw one was when I was sitting in the waiting room at the vet's office with my cat.  Whenever I see a commercial, though, it always astonishes me how stupid they think the public must be.
