T-Mobile Posts Valentines Day Video Featuring Khloe Kardashian

Let me just say there was a total missed opportunity here to plug video chat over the T-Mobile 4G network. A text message of a heart on a G2 or Lamar calling her on video chat on the myTouch4G or upcoming Galaxy S 4G? Either way, this is just hard to watch.

    Personally, it’s cheesy and cute. And it’s a Valentine’s Day Ad so it’s supposed to be cheesy and cute. Having said that though I have to agree 150% with David that they definitely missed an opportunity here to showcase a 4G device with a front-facing-camera showing Lamar talking to her via video chat. That should have been the easiest decision to make putting the Ad together [a no-brainer]…someone not thinking these Ads through and should be fired!

    TMobile, please stop using whore wannabes in your commercials.

      Seriously! Like that Charles Barkley commercial! And that one with Dwayne Wade! And that one with the bald AT&T guy! And all those children in the “kids for free” commercial! A bunch of nasty children they were. You should go talk to their parents and give them a piece your filthy mind.

      • frigadroid

        Charles isn’t a whore he just likes to get drunk and drive around with whores. Then gamble on credit and not pay his bill. But hey he is the first one to admit he is not a role model and I respect him for his honesty and do think he has a good sense of humor and can be funny at times.
        Would I enjoy hanging around with him drinking beer and eating chicken wings, sure but I wouldn’t hire him to represent my company.

    Really? The Kardashians? I hope they have a different commercial for those of us who try to avoid anything on the E! channel. When my wife watches that (which she does religiously), I go and find people to kill on Fallout.

    As usual…….bad commercial that DOES NOT say anything. All phones can get a text.

    • Shannon

      I agree. There’s no reason for me to upgrade or switch from my current carrier after seeing that spot. I also think that they coulda used a more aesthetically pleasing phone. To me, that G2, as nice as it is internally, is rather cheap and bulky looking.

      I really think that T-Mobile needs to push Android and what Android can do (other than video chat-I’m tired of hearing Carly talk about video chat on the myTouch). Especially now when there are more places to get that “cool iPhone that has all those apps”. I don’t think T-Mobile has anything that can compete against something like that, do they? Wait… Android? Hmmm, interesting. Phones that are as good, if not better, than an iPhone? AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon all push Android… maybe if T’s marketing dept took that approach instead of doing the opposite, they’d start attracting customers instead of losing customers.

      But I guess if I knew what I was talking about, I wouldn’t be stuck in Podunk, New Mexico.

        Tmo should really push Android like….being the first carrier to bring it to market? Or to have more android powered phones then any other carrier?

        It would be nice if they did get a bit more aggressive against the iFail, but lets be honest, the people who REALLY want the iPhone are little girls and people who don’t know any better. Everyone else, already KNOWS Android is the way to go and the OS advertises itself. Want a little proof the iPhone is used by more women then men? Just simply check out damnyouautocorrect.com and notice how like 75% or more of the posts are screen shots from girls phones lol

      • HIM

        not that I liked the commercial (it was HORRIBLE) but really…….why is she a “Kardashian Slut or Pig Whore”? She is not out on the street corner sucking {pickels} for money. She is not sliding up and down some stripper pole for drunk old men. She may not have worked her way up from a broke college kid living on her own cause her parents died in a tragic car crash, but she IS making her own money. She is a wife, a sister, a daughter, and a friend to many people. A whore or pig she is not. I just don’t understand the hate for people whom you’ve never met and don’t know anything about. Have you ever thought to your self that the reason she may seem bad is because thats all the media shows. The media is out to make money and if they showed her at home making dinner for her family, or in church, or helping an old lady across the street nobody would watch. You see what THEY want you to see. think about that before you go and bash someone who you don’t know a thing about (other than what the MEDIA tells you).

        p.s (and on topic…..sorry david)
        Dumb commercial….T-mobile can do much better than this! At least its something to promote this weekends sale.

          Go check out the “leaked” sex video of Kim with one of her earlier boyfriends and get back to me.

          Seriously… this family doesn’t even deserve the attention they get…

          And David – your blog – your rules.. but I stand by what I’ve said here.

        • HIM

          This is not KIM….and that doesnt matter. Have you ever had sex. I have! Have u ever filmed it? I have….and if someone “stole/leaked” it that would not be fun. Why are people so taboo over sex. WE ALL HAVE SEX. not everyone needs to see it. next your gonna tell me girls don’t fart. Get over it dude. And by telling me to watch the sex tape means you have watched it yourself….calling the kettle black. Making it is just as bad as watching it. Don’t watch it if you don’t like her/sex/video cameras/mtv/E!/anything. I don’t watch their show or anything else of that nature BUT what I do have is RESPECT. Neither one of us knows these people personally, so how can you judge her. AGAIN….its all what the MEDIA wants you to see. take a look in the mirror my friend, I promise you’ll see somethings you don’t like….BUT if somebody wanted to pay you, you would take the money. I’m done…sorry again David. I’m just not a fan of disrespectful people!

    This is not a full fledged production commerical, yes it sucks.. and yes the only good thing about it for me was to see my phone (g2) get some internet air time. Other than that you wont be seeing this on tv.. its an internet campaign starting when odom was at tmobile signing autographs in LA a week or so ago. They are just keeping tmobile fresh on the mind without spending millions to do so. We might not want to see this type of shit but we forget there is a generation in between that we are forgetting about, those are the moms that have teenage kids that also are into the kardashians and crap like that. Got Odom for the males and basketball… blah blah thats my idea.

      Seriously im no kardashian fan or hater but in general if I had anything to do with tmobile marketing I would feel ashamed. As of late the best they can do is a ripoff of the mac vs pc imho.
      Apple and Windows ads seem so much more polished and creative. I kind of feel that its as if someone making the decision lacks vision and creativity or budget to get it right.

While she went outside and walked by the poster, instead of it explaining the Valentines day “free” smartphone deal it would have said “BOO! In your face Verizon and AT&T, we got yo ass.

      Tough question even for Google. I could be wrong but I think if its too soon, they will charge you the rest you owe for the phone to get their money back. Customer care will give you a fast accurate answer though.

      14 Days from the date of upgrade, begin counting day after upgrade. If you have a full upgrade available now, then you’re better off getting out of the contract now. You would be in the area of $50 or last month of service to cancel.
