aNewDomain.net – If you’re tired of having dinner with a bunch of friends who can’t stop texting other friends the whole time — or you are just sick of standing in line behind clueless texters — you will love the parody video below from the guys at FogAndSmog below. Their immediately classic work — called “Would You Please Put Your Phone Down” — will even make you want to do exactly that if you’re guilty of any of the above and more.
This is shot so beautifully and sung so expertly — the nod to late Apple CEO Steve Jobs in its centerpiece is respectful but telling — that you’ll find yourself watching it more than once. I promise. You might even be shouting out the lyrics, who knows? Like ex-smokers or former aficionados of any extreme behavior, ex-smartphone addicts are capable of astonishingly bullish behavior.
Would you please put your phone down? Would you even consider this? Watch this video, produced by FogAndSmog, and you tell me. Email me at Julie@aNewDomain.net.
