I think the real Donathan (and of course that is not his/her/it's real name) paid that young woman on the bus to read that from a script.  Wink  Her real name probably isn't really Karen either!  Tongue

Anything is possible I suppose. I can only tell you that she (I'll give the benefit of the doubt and assume she is Karen in the video and pic) took the selfie and made the video at my request after a couple of PM exchanges.

I hold no ill will towards Donathan. To me, this internet forum business is all about having fun. Some people have fun differently than others.

Your thing, your thang! I have no ill will either, he just puts himself out there so much, I couldn't help it. I think Donna is still using some alias and posting just like he always did.  Most people come off as pretty normal...others don't.  Look who is making accusations lately.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

OK, I just watched the "Break-up" version of the ad a few times and can list a few things that really, really bothered me - certainly, the vengeful, irrational, out-of-control young woman acting like a three-year-old in public is completely alienating and painful to watch.  Lady, NO ONE CARES that you are mad at your boyfriend.  Case closed.  Throw your tantrum (and all your/his stuff) elsewhere.  The air-mailing of trash onto the public sidewalk is just awful.  After you kill your boyfriend with all that flying debris...who's going to clean up YOUR mess?    

The apartment - at least from the outside - appears to be neglected and dilapidated - peeling paint, gross windows, dead potted plants, and yet the young woman has some pretty nice clothes and electronics (check out the TV that she gazes at so rapturously...that wasn't sent flying out the window, although I'm sure that Errant Boyfriend must have helped her buy it, LOL)  

And even creepier - if you pause it at  about 8 seconds in - there is a baby in a stroller on the sidewalk coming into the picture (look to the right)!  We can only hope that Crazy-Eyed Vengeful Over-Empowered Angry Goddess Of Independence didn't smash the little tyke too.  Horrible, horrible ad!  AngryAngry

ConfusedI thought I saw the same thing and I DO believe it added to the 'creepy *itch'-factor...in any case, anyone who has to throw anything at anyone else should be apprehended and restrained. Or shot on the spot, maybe mildly-muderated, doncha know...

I don't even know what the 3 means - guess I can look it up but I just don't care. 

You can now own a "3" hat for just.....um....

Is Chance the Rapper wearing a fur coat? That's not very PC!



I remember this Mink Stole my mom used to have. It was creepy! It had paws and claws and a head with teeth! It scared the bejesus out of me.

Look closer.  It's a fur hoodie with teddy bear ears.  And claws on the cuffs.  Gotta be a weird story about cosplay going seriously wrong there somewhere...   LOL

Commercialssuck, you're a small-minded racist. Who gives a rat's butt how many "non white" actors there are?!? This is America, the land of potpourri cultures. Get over it.

While I agree with you here I think his point was how politically correct they are. I don't really get bothered by how many black people there are in a commercials so maybe he is a racist.

I get BS junk mail from AT&T a couple times a week, It pisses me off so much I called them.  Some foreign f*cktard didn't understand what I wanted.  Leave me alone!

What's with the stupid changes in the design of the logo? Are they trying to ripoff the 1980s MTV logo variations?

None of these stupid "ideas" are original!

Too bad that someone posting here is ultimately called a racist for pointing out the obvious.  90% of Commercials now feature 90% non=whites and it feels like they bend over backwards to insure that NO white males are in the superior role in the ad.  Towards this ATT ad, they don't dare put a black boyfriend in this role because of the long term stereotype that all black men cheat on their girlfriends.  What they miss on is that they are bolstering the stereotype of angry black women overreacting in over-the-top fashion. And I agree with initial point that the female anncr is awful!  When it comes on, which is several times a day regardless of what channel I have on unfortunately,I cannot grab the frkg remote fast enough.

I'm already weary of this new It's Your Thing campaign from AT&T.  There are plenty of black and/or African-American voiceover artists who do a great job.  (I'm not including Arby's Ving Rhames in this LOL.)  It's the vocal fry I can't stand, and it's really annoying when a black woman is trying to sound like a Valley Girl.  Or vocal fry is so widespread now everyone's doing it!  Angry

Some thoughts from their facebook page...

Great job of totally screwing up DirecTV! Now the "new improved" guide is pathetically slow! It reminds me of first generation receivers from 1996!

AT&T paid $600,000 to gut net neutrality and to push for a merger. They only got half of what they paid for - as far. AT&T SUCKS!

Kinda hard to watch anything when AT&T s data Throttling everyone

Worst service ON THE PLANET!

I see a breach of contract lawsuit coming!

AT&T is blocking Yahoo on my mobile phone

Omfg it is impossible to get my phone upgraded properly w att. WTH. I have spent so much time online chat and phone and in store to get the phone I want and I still don’t have it. This is such a clustereff. They don’t care about my loyalty so not sure why I’m staying these days.... maybe this upgrade needs to go to Verizon. And my daughter’s new phone line too. bc att can’t seem to handle it.

I hate these commercials. Starting with the person doing the voiceover. Hate her voice. I tried to look up who she is and can’t find it. Sounds like a few people. Mainly Queen La Queefa. Or possibly Mohammad Ali’s daughter. I Hate how she keeps saying your thang over and over.
