Your Cellphone Depresses Me

Your communications product is jejune, and fills me with sorrow. This ad for a particular model Motorola cellphone (unfortunately, the resolution on the logo is not high enough for me to discern the product name under the wing of the “V” logo) shows a rather disaffected customer. While the card is from Finland, one would still expect that ads for consumer products would show someone having fun using the product. Instead, this young lady finds it rather depressing.

This 1999 ad is prescient, in a way; the model is holding the phone using the Steve Jobs Method for Best iPhone Reception (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off).
