Can I get Upgrade?

Have you seen this commercial? If your one of the few, along with the Amish, who haven't then consider yourself lucky. This commercial is played on every channel on every commercial break.



First off, Mrs. Knowles...are you really that hard up for money that you need to do direct tv commercials? I know your last CD and the whole Sasha Fierce thing isn't working out as well for you as it did for P Diddy, but come on seriously. Your married to JayZ who is probably one of the most famous and richest rappers on the planet right now and I'm sure you guys signed a prenup before you got hitched, but seriously, couldn't he float you a loan? Maybe the breakup of Destiny's Child wasn't such a great idea. Look what it's brought you too, singing while rolling around in some fake gold coins with a gold necklace in your mouth....come on, are you kidding me?

Secondly, Direct tv...those who are impressed with Mrs. Knowles wearing a short glitter gold dress and a upgrade necklace in her mouth (is it supposed to look like fake gold teeth) while rolling around in fake gold coins, can not afford your services because they are under the age of fifteen. Those of us who can, are not impressed and no it hasn't made me jump to the phone to purchase your services. In fact, I have now decided that I will never again subscribe to direct tv due to the fact that your commercials are just plain annoying and make me feel I have the intelligence of a twelve year old.

Thirdly, I hate the stupid commercial because of the fact it gets stuck in my head for days. In fact, it's been stuck in my head for the past four days. DW and I have been fighting over the one upgrade that comes on our phone line right now. One person can upgrade now while the other person has to wait till April. DW actually needs a phone because he uses his constantly, while I just want a new phone because I don't have a cool phone. So, what does a person do when trying to get the one upgrade....sing Mrs. Knowles upgrade song. Yes, for the past four days I have been walking around singing "upgrade" and doing my white girl version of the upgrade dance. So though the commercial hasn't succeeded in my wanting to purchase the direct tv services, it has worked to win me the upgrade on my phone. DW took me last night to "upgrade" my phone to a new cool phone. I think he really was just tired of me walking around singing upgrade and figured that was the only way to get me to shut up. Can I get a upgrade?
