AT&T’s Advertising, Or, Too Much Time Writing About Vaginas

April 18, 2008

I giggled last night when I saw a new AT&T wireless ad. It features cell phones arising out of fleshy, expanding (largely pink) flowers. As I watched it, I thought: “Those flowers kind of look like vulvas. I mean, they’re obviously targeting women with the pink and all the flowers, but it’s like these flowers are opening up and giving birth to the phones.”

And then, the ad text.

“Happy Mother’s Day.”

Ah ha ha ha ha ha. Maybe their ad people just discovered Georgia O’Keefe.

    That’s funny. . . What struck me most about the ad was the amazing animation.

    Now you have to watch it again and tell me what those amazing flowers remind you of.🙂

    BTW, you’ve been tagged.

    I saw it again last night. I can see it, but that’s still not what strikes me. I guess it because I don’t write about vaginas all day long.

    I think that probably does make a difference.🙂
