In times like these, the mobile market is absolutely cutthroat and when promoting your latest product you also have to point fun at your competitor’s products.
Well, once again a funny controversial TV advert has been brought out courtesy of T-Mobile due to their My Touch 4G promotion. Not only do we find out that yes.. it has 4G, we also see the iPhone 4 take a bit of a beating because of its relationship with unpopular network provider AT&T and the fact that the company is literally a monkey on its back. We have embedded the video below for you to take a look at with thanks to Mashable.
As you can see AT&T is being depicted as a heavy sad-looking guy which is weighing his more reluctant iPhone 4 playing friend down. T-Mobile is of course portrayed as a slim attractive lady with wit and charm. Just to add another cheap shot to their rivals, T-Mobile makes sure they state that Apple’s feature FaceTime “REQUIRES WI-FI”.
What do you make of the TV ad, is it in general a good way of promoting your devices? Or is it just a bitchy personal attack on your rivals? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
