Happy 5th Birthday.

AT&T has a new commercial that causes such repulsion in my husband that he did not know what it was advertising until I told him.  Gene Wilder’s “Pure Imagination” lost all of the charm, innocence and sweet nature from Willy Wonka and took on a sinister, creepy vibe in this commercial for AT&T.

I would have to argue though, that Willy Wonka brought more to life in his creepy chocolate factory full of musical migrant midget workers than AT&T’s weird drawings that come to life.  I’m pretty sure I don’t want the things 5 year olds dream of to come to life, unless they involve a chocolate river.  Sorry, AT&T, you might have Apple locked down for another 3 years, but that doesn’t mean the rest of us have to join your crazy fantasy land.
