Although this Windows 7 phone commercial has been out for a month, I’m completely taken by it. YouTube shows that nearly 1.5 million other people are, too. I can’t remember the last time I went into a restaurant and didn’t see at least one person slumped over and staring intently on a small device — as if the answers to life’s mysteries would appear at any moment.
This ad (“Really?”) nails our current information-gadget-obsessed culture. And although I find the spot very funny, it’s also very frightening and sad.
