New G1 T-Mobile Ad: Pretty Cool or Pretty Patronizing?

Since the Google/T-Mobile presentation yesterday of the hotly-anticipated Android-running G1 smartphone, the G1 has been playing with my emotions with reports that it looks great, works great, but has some big flaws. The again, up and down reviews are no huge surprise, especially if you weathered the storm that was the iPhone 3G launch.


So here's the new commercial for the G1. The concept is apparently based around the fact that if you make words grammatically incorrect, young people will respond (since that's how they talk?). Maybe I'm guilty of using the non-word "funner," but "funnerer?" Never.

That said it's a nice-looking commercial that doesn't cop anyone else's advertising style (ahem). What do you think?
