    much to overblown in my opinion, can't really take this serious.
    Its a phone not some futuristic cyber oingoboingo

    I'd like to see the feature film!

    But I don't want the phone.

    honestly, i prefer the droid ads compared to the apple facetime ads.

    apple is ridiculously exploiting emotion to attach users to their product.

    Yeah, Apple sure does like to pull the ol' heartstrings quite often: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4uQUinM9lA

    exploiting emotion? to me it seems like apple is giving examples of the difference one of their features can make in their life. Pretty smart considering that video calling has never really taken off. This way apple is helping customers understand what the feature can do and why they would want to use it.

    They sure spent a lot of money to say absolutely nothing about the phone.

    It makes the impressionable not feel that their phone sucks next to the iPhone. That's the purpose. I think it achieves that.

    Too bad Droid sucks though.

    No it's made from alien poop.

    Different scenario there.

    Greater chance you'll mutate instead of die from an alien disease.

    Droid ads don't need to show functionality like Apple ads do. They just have to be badass. :D
    (Although they should show more cool apps other than Pandora, Qik, and Facebook)

    Wouldn't it be funny if they did a Fring video call with one person on a Droid, and another on an iPhone in a commercial?

    I agree.

    Besides it's just an advertisement. No need for Apple fans to take it so seriously, and get all worked up. Motorola is not doing anything that hasn't been done before. In addition, the Android platform is good for Apple, and their customers. Combine that with Apples own disastrous handling of the iPhone 4 faults. and it ads up to a massive slap of reality for Apple. No one needs it more than they do. History will reveal that Apple either woke up & became better, or snoozed and slid backwards. This is Apples game to lose.

    They don't have to.

    Really well made, if you ask me. I enjoyed watching it.

    But… very overdramatic. It's a phone. Come on. No one's going to believe that.

    Understood, but look at how "dramatic" people are around here about their iPhone. LOL! One tiny little scratch and its game over man!

    Seriously though I love the commercials. They say "this phone means business". LOL!

    That said I am VERY happy with my iPhone and have decided to ride this thing out. :D

    then you probably wouldn't like AT&T's new ad campaign 'Rethink Possible'

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJiL-PAMI80&hd=1

    a lot of companies do it. as another poster said, they achieved success because we're talking about it.

    some of you are slow and don't realize it's a teaser ad. It's an ad that will only be shown for a day. Tomorrow we'll probably see a lot more Droid ads
