We've been talking about the Best Buy ads with the mom's and them dis'ing Santa.

I'm sure this is what BB wants because they are working, but everyone I know says they hate those commercials and how the moms are complete bitches.

I find it funny that they still mention the "sequences are shortened".

Yeah, THAT's the only thing that isn't real in this commercial

Awesome ad! WAY better than the smartass Samsung ads..

Speaking of which, do they really think they'll switch iPhone users to Samsung by insulting and attacking them???

SOPA Alert. Mac Rumors has too many links to pirated video material. Prepare for DNS annihilation. Chinese Internet Nukes inbound.

He is using his American accent so Siri will understand him ;-)

I think people are using the word 'cheesy' in the wrong context. Tugging at some emotional chords is not the same as being cheesy.
