Again I believe that it is alluding to the fact that they will be using the technology when they are older - not necessarily now.  They are trying to put across the message that they (Telecom) are at the fore-front of technology, using tomorrow's technology today.

I think the spoof would have been a heck of a lot funnier if they used adults...

To spoof an ad you need to do more than change the voice track. The whole ad needed to be changed, as was previously mentioned maybe have adults acting out the kids parts. I just didnt find the ad funny, not because of the target or the children (altought i did think that was a little bad taste) but becuase it was funny.

It wouldnt surprise me if there whole thing was done by Annette.....

Heh no, me either. Watching her and her grating voice on TV has made me promise myself I will NEVER sign up with those guys. I wonder if she knows how much damage she does their credability, or am I the only one that thinks that?

A seperate Annette thread? How about spoofing one of the Slingshot ads? I am surprised that Annette doesn't show Naan bread in her ad.

And it would be a 2 hour ad.

You mean they're not already two hours long? Because it does seem like it.

Anyone remember 'Celebrity Smackdown' that was on TV a few years ago? Claymation boxing matches between famous people. Funny program.

How about a match up between TG and AP. Who do you think would win and why?

TG would win. She has the smarts to run a big company and does a good job of it. Annette's a whiny ***** who would bring a loaf of bread to the fight and try beating TG with it.
