Cell phones aren’t actually this exciting

Most people pass the time on the bus or subway by reading a book, listening to their iPod or playing Breakout on their BlackBerry. The bored guy in a new Taxi spot for Amp’d Mobile prefers to order his fellow passengers around—having them fight, turn up the music and shake their junk. He also gets a pair of women to make out. The tagline is, “Have the power to entertain yourself.” It’s kind of amusing, but there’s always a bit of a letdown with these kinds of ads when you see the product. Via ’boards. Spotted on Advergirl, who writes that she’s “bored with the whole women are hot kissing cliché … but, I am clearly not the target.”
