Virgin Mobile Canada Stoops to New Low...

Disappointing. Disgusting. Shocked. Offended. You pick the negative emotion and we're pretty much feeling it right now. I mean, how could they, right? How could Virgin Mobile Canada stoop so low...

...As to carry the Crackberry?

What? Oh, you thought we meant the blatantly misogynistic, awkwardly pandering, positively Neaderthal-eque pseudo-sexual advertising that rankles the puritanical roots of Americans but barely raises an eyebrow across the pond in Europe?

Yeah, if Fake Steve were still around, he'd be all over this. Might even suggest who to call for a little competitive escalation.

All we can say is for shame Virgin Mobile Canada. For. Shame...

Virgin Mobile Canada Stoops to New Low...


LOL those guys are living in a dream world, everybody knows the iPhone gets you WAAAAAAYYYY more snatch then the blackberry... what a complete JOKE. I clicked on that link and the blackberry geeks are happy about that AD. HAHAH that just gives me a nice little grin....

You guys are overreacting. She's not getting undressed in excitement she's getting dressed in disgust because the Blackberry on the night table is getting more attention from it's owner's digits than she is. There can be only one true soul mate for a Blackberry owner and it's their obsessive attachment to e-mail delivered by their RIM device. All others in this world are a mere distraction. Thought you'd know better by now.

What that commercial didn't show was the night she went home with the iPhone owner now that it's out in Canada, besides, the woman would like the iPhone better, it requires something women love, and that's a commitment.

Really cool website! :) I like to spend lot of time with my kids and Im also printing coloring pages from my site. You can test it. Regards!
