Tomorrow’s AT&T Q4 2015 earnings call made into a drinking game, too


After making Verizon’s Q4 2015 earnings call a bit more interesting by turning it into a drinking game, T-Mobile has decided to do the same with tomorrow’s AT&T earnings call.

AT&T is holding its Q4 2015 earnings call tomorrow at 4:30 pm ET/1:30 pm PT, and in advance of the announcement, T-Mobile has released a new drinking game to help spice things up. As before, there are different drink levels, with each tier having increasingly unlikely events that, if they do occur, will task you with taking more drinks.

At the one drink level are some pretty likely scenarios, like AT&T mentioning “profitable growth,” “bundling” services, or the “internet of things.” T-Mo recommends taking one drink for every IoT mention, though. If you hear Big Blue make a joke about Donald Trump and Mexico, mention Project Agile — an effort to optimize costs and simplify offers — or “hide phone losses under a mountain of cheap connected cars and free tablets,” you’ll need to take two drinks.

Moving on to the more drink-heavy tiers, you’ll need to take three gulps if AT&T says that it “can’t handle the pressure” and abandons wireless, calls its customers “people” rather than “economic units,” or if AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson shows up for the call. And if AT&T admits its logo is the Death Star, ends overages, or appoints Lily its new CEO, you’ll have to finish your entire drink.

Since AT&T’s earnings call is later in the day than Verizon’s, this drinking game might be one that more folks can participate in, especially on the East Coast. Because of that timing, though, you might want to avoid using espresso for AT&T’s drinking game like John Legere did with Verizon’s drinking game, otherwise you might find yourself having trouble getting to sleep.

One other note is that Sprint is hosting its own earnings call tomorrow, with its fiscal Q3 2015 results set to be discussed at 8:30 am ET/5:30 am PT tomorrow. Apparently John Legere and Co. don’t feel like making a drinking game for the earnings call of the carrier that they passed, though.

    This drinking game is hilarious to me… me and my friends did this for the Republican debates and one of them got so drunk he fell out on the floor and went to sleep lmao

    The upper management at t-mobile plays the drinking game every day. They start at 8 AM are are stone drunk by the 10 AM break. You can tell by the way the company is managed that is what their work day consists of.

    • Phone Guy

      I hope they keep it up then. Its working.

      Are you speculating or
      have you witnessed this first hand? OH wait, you have no idea and are just
      making a lame attempt to insult T-Mobile.

  • Paul

    I won’t be listening in on the call, but I’d be more inclined to do so with this drinking game in place.

  • Grandy

    I’m a T-Mobile customer and have never regretted the day I signed up with them. The price, voice/data features, and customer service have been top notch.

    However, the insult approach to promoting T-Mobile’s superior product feels like it is getting out of hand. Frankly, I’m really tired of it. One of these days T-Mobile will stumble and fall–even for a moment–and all they will have to land on will be a bed of insults instead of a mattress of integrity.

    I think there will be more drinking at the Sprint earnings call. Losing money and firing minions, leaving the people actually responsible for the company’s downfall in place.

  • I love how AT&T is covering 355 million out of the 320 million people in the US. Totally legit, right?

    • Larry Whitehead

      The article you reference refers to 355 million PoP’s not people. A point of presence (PoP) is an artificial demarcation point OR interface point between communicating entities.

      • Well, that’s purposely deceiving.
