For AT&T, Romantic Dinners Are About Love of the Game

Watch sports, but watch your girlfriend, too

AT&T's "Romantic Dinner" spot, from BBDO New York, shows off how the carrier's network allows iPhone 4S users to ignore their loved ones. For this guy's sake, I hope the service includes an app for making the couch more comfortable, because he'll probably be sleeping on it later tonight. It's a funny ad, don't get me wrong. But unless the guy has money riding on that game, he needs to reexamine his priorities. So does AT&T, if that kind of dick move is really the light they want to shine on their product.
