Now how about those Vote Miller ads?

They're a travis-sham-mockery!
That ad campaign is gorwing on me, and maybe it is because I am a huge Bob Odenkirk fan as well.

But his performance is awesome and so silly, it becomes so good!

Bergafickle!

I need the cell phone with me to use the walkie talkie function. So does the other party I'm calling. So why the (*!@#$& don't they just make a cell call? It's not like they're in the middle of the ocean making a walkie talkie call, when cell service is unavailable. So clearly there's a whole walkie talkie network needed as well.

This whole thing makes no sense.
I've been wondering that myself. If they need the cell phone to use the walkie-talkie feature, why not just actually call? And it'll save time by not having to click back and forth all the time? Maybe it's cheaper by the minute or something? I have no idea.

I've never seen the commercial. (I live in Canada, eh)
If it's Nextel (Mike in Canada), the two way needs a lot less signal strength than the cell.
My Mike works in places where there's too much interference or no signal for cells.
If it's not Nextel...
Don't know if that helps you any.

It is one of the most nauseating and repugnant commericals I have seen in a while.

Wondering the same thing myself. I don't even have a cell phone and act like a total ignoramus when I've used other's cells. So, really didn't get this walkie talkie thing.
It's sort of nice to have a thread where there is a common enemy and Flames and Lightning people can be united.

I'm 99% sure that the EMU did not air during the last 3 games. Does HF Boards really have power?
