I hate AT&T. They bought and destroyed a company I really enjoyed working for.
That said, my mouth dropped open when I saw this GoPhone ad.
How brilliantly postmodern! I admire Meat Loaf’s sense of humor, and the garage explosions are the perfect blend of rock show excess and WTF?!? moments. (Let’s not think too much about the rewritten context when the son, happy because of his GoPhone, sings “I’ll love you til the end of time” to Dad.)
The kid, Adam Cagley, although perfectly cast, is not actually related to Meat Loaf. And the leg of lamb! And the dove! It wasn’t until the credits rolled (what ad has credits?) that I realized “Mom” was Tiffany! Wowzers. Good ad.
