On Monday, I linked to Lauredhel's post about the LG Stalkerphone (not it's official brand name, heh), and then last night I saw this advert for another one of LG's phones:

First of all, I should mention that I didn't even know the people in the advert are famous until I looked it up on YouTube, so whatever their personas and reputations may be, it's all lost on me.

I almost found this spot diggable. I hate the premise—she's talking about something important to her, so he gets bored and distracted by other women walking by—but I was thought it was surprisingly awesome when she texted him, totally busting his rude ass. Of course, then I expected her to get up and walk away; instead, it disintegrates into the old boys will be boys routine. Gah. Ruined!

It reminds me of that Panasonic advert which could have been cool, if only it hadn't been afraid to be.
