Oh, Meatloaf. Oh, Tiffany. What happened? One minute you're engaging in some outlandish onstage dramatics or coyly crooning "I Think We're Alone Now," and the next minute you're playing. . . middle-aged suburban parents (with magic powers?) in an AT&T commercial. Sigh. It's not just that this whole ad, a family performance of Meatloaf's "Paradise By the Dashboard Light" with new lyrics about getting this teenage kid his GoPhone, is silly or way too long — though it is both those things. It's mostly just really awkward to watch.
