    AT&T user or not, you have to admit, this was a pretty funny idea. How he kept a straight face in the AT&T store is beyond me but a pretty god gag overall. Thanks to Mike R. for the link.

    Pretty funny stuff. I love how people didn't really get that he wasn't really supposed to be conscious of this map following him around.

    Hah! That was pretty good. The cameraman sucked, though. Should have stopped after the AT&T store.

    Thanks guys. Imagine my surprise to visit HardOCP this evening and see one of my videos from last month on the home page. Glad you liked it.

    The AT&T people seemed to get it the best out of everybody. The woman there seemed to get the biggest kick out of it too out of everybody in the video.

    I thought this was meant to be a viral video by Verizon. Nice work! It was quite funny.

    I'm on AT&T and I hate AT&T. So I laughed. I remember when the Impression was coming out and I inquired about it, the salespeople were total dicks about it and didn't know what the phone was. Of course I didn't buy it after I found out it didn't have wifi.

    Sorry man, the microphone was hidden under Ryan's coat so it scratched a lot of the audio. If I had even thought [H] would post it on their homepage, I probably would have been a little more careful!

    I have AT&T and I'm offended. Oh wait, no I'm not...freaking service sucks. I nearly peeped a bit at all the people asking about your map and you kept saying it feels like you have a map following you sometimes. Thanks sir!

    AT&T + iPhone user here. I love the spoof. Good acting on the helmet guys part. Yes, camera guy needs work on his stealth photography.

    As for AT&T I like them way better than Verizon. I live in Idaho and have 3G or the Edge network everhwere I go. I never loose a music stream or drop a phone call. Customer service has been great. No complaints so far.

    This is true of both the cellular and land line service. The company I work at would literally pay double/triple for a competing land line service if one were available.

    That took some major b@lls. Great video.

    Too bad the rent a cop had to ruin the fun at the end.
