AT&T Commercial During Oscars Creates Controversy With Insidious Implication

AT&T Commercial During Oscars Creates Controversy With Insidious Implication

 

 

 

During the 2016 Oscars ceremony AT&T aired a commercial with a sweeping cinematic tableau which, essentially, said “we own you if you touch any network”. As if this would not give one pause, AT&T wraps up the commercial with a Stazi-like depiction of your fingerprint turning into the AT&T logo as if to also say “we are the people who fingerprint you”.

 

 

Should consumers rejoice in AT&T’s capitulation into honesty or cringe in revulsion at the admittance that AT&T exists to track, trace, monitor and exploit hapless users by watching every single thing they do.

 

 

Is AT&T finally acknowledging their intent or did they attempt a hide-in-plain-sight tactic?
