Usually I'm not too angry about sexist commercials. I don't really care if nude women sell yoghurt but the newest *beep* of a major mobile telecommunication provider really pisses me off. Click here to watch 'T-mobile-spot'

That strikes me as pretty icky even though I can't understand the voiceover at the end. What's being said?

They're just claiming that you'll have 'everything under control' with their tariff. There were some nice spots with that slogan (people dancing around weirdly and making a brass band join in etc) but this is just sleazy.

Reminds me of a US commercial I saw several months back for a some kind of portable entertainment device. The slogan was something like "Entertain yourself!", and the guy in the commercial was doing so by controlling the actions of a bus full of people. The actions he chose to impose on the people were, to me, sickening - and there was definitely a sexual component to all of the ones involving women.

Eew.

Coming here off of Hathor... the one Revena's thinking of, I believe, is the Amp'd Mobile commercials (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLwrsuqbmxg and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPz5PA55wwA&NR in particular. Just look at those responses. >_>) The actions in general in the commercials ranged from silly to abuse.

Yep, those were the ones. When I saw it on television, it was as one lengthy commercial, but I gather they only played it that way on some cable networks.

Ugh. So icky.

I have that phone, and though I find the commercial kinda silly, I still wish mine had those powers.
