Pre

Posted on Friday, September 25th, 2009

Dave!Am I the only one who is scared shitless whenever that freaky woman pops up on television to whore the Palm Pre in their ads?

She's like a drugged-out Borg Queen at an Italian Renaissance fair who is telling you to buy one of her phones or else she's going to stab you while you sleep. She's so frightening that my testicles retreat into my torso whenever she appears. If I were to ever meet her in person, my balls would probably go missing for weeks.

Forget zombies and vampires, HERE'S the Halloween costume to beat this year...

Freaky-Ass Palm Pre Bitch

I've played with the Palm Pre, and it's not a bad smartphone. If the iPhone didn't exist, it would be a serious contender for my mobile of choice. But since the iPhone does exist, Palm felt they couldn't really compete and needed to use scare tactics to sell the thing?

I guess that's one strategy.

In other news... a few people didn't understand what I meant by the whole Guinness on Lough Tay thing, so I added this frame to show how the lake kind of looks like a glass of Guinness...

Lough Tay Guinness Lake Morph!

And that's all for tonight, as I am half-asleep already.

Please don't let me have Palm Pre Bitch nightmares...

    I have never seen the commercials, but it looks freaky just from your screen shots!
    I loved the Guinness thing. Don’t understand why some people didn’t get it!

    I haven’t seen that commercial yet but I’ll be sure to not let my iPhone see it because if it’s anything like you, it will scream and run away from the tv like a girly man. I mean iGirlieman.

  3. Hilly says:

    So wait, we’re not going to be Edward and Bella this year? Sheesh, you take away all the fun! ;)

  4. Jodi says:

    no, you are not the only one.

  5. Steve Ananian says:

    I thought it was gonna be a “give yourself some color with our new makeup” ad the first time I saw it. Borg Queen indeed. Wicked scary.

  6. She’s frightening, but she’s not as annoying as the Progressive Insurance bitch. You just love that sound? Really? Creepy I tell ya!

  7. Chris Weed says:

    Wow. I actually correctly guessed the name of that picture: CreepyAssBitch, sans PalmPre.

  8. Chris Weed says:

    Disregard that last comment, I can’t read.

  9. Michelle M. says:

    It’s not just you.

    I find the ads pretentious and irritating rather than creepy.

  10. Justin Scott says:

    haha, totally agree on all of the above (as usual)

    Have you seen the REALLY creepy Palm Pre ad?

    It’s even scarier.

  11. She is crazy, man! You’re definitely not alone.

    I also want what she’s on. Talk about being mesmerized be a shiny electronic device.

  12. Brandon says:

    You are so right. I saw it a few times and I didn’t even know that it was a commercial for a phone. I was totally unable to focus on what was being sold. How in the world did this get chosen to be their marketing campaign?

  13. The Momshell says:

    The husband is totally skeeved out by that vampire chick, too.
