    I was browsing the web as usual, and I came across this flash ad.

    Makes you wanna buy a go phone, doesn't it? :thumbsup:

    Who the heck runs these crappy promotions for these companies anyway?

    Edit: Good god it's even on AT&T's site. :thumbsup: How on earth does a corporation as profitable as a cell phone company allow their advertising department to suck that hard?

    Not to mention they mixed Sonic Advanced style characters with classic Sonic zones. And it looks kind of blurry.

    What I do like is this is the first time in a long time Sonic has been used to advertise something non Sonic related.

    Jesus, they're still running that ad?! Bah, well at least I'm not the only one that noticed, as Qjimbo said I mentioned about this earlier, I even have a snapshot of when I first noticed it on digg.com

    I just noticed your last line there, did you see Sonic peddling McDonalds Happy Meals? It creeped me out, deeply.

    You'd think Sonic wouldn't trust Ronald McDonald, since he uses the same type of colors as Dr. Eggman...

    Personally I would trust Robotnik long before I would Ronald McDonald....

    No, but it means that SEGA regularly forgets that you aren't a girl.

    And Ronald creeps me out, not for being a clown, but because the Trojan Man (I don't think they run those commercials anymore) also happens to have yellow cloves and red and white striped sleeves.
