I don’t know about you, but nothing gets me excited for a huge upcoming defensive series after the Jets go up a couple touchdowns like hearing Walt Jr. tell me about his last text message with a real brain. I’m all about not smearing my face across the windshield because of a meaningless text, but this depressing fucking raincloud of a commercial hovered over me for at least the entire first half. Completely caught all of New York off guard.
To be honest, none of us are ever going to stop texting while driving. It’s the same reason we continue to order Mango Habanero at Buffalo Wild Wings. Death staring us in the face, nobody goes into it thinking it’s a good idea, but it’s something that just has to be done. Everybody thinks they have the death proof method too. The no-looker, the prop up on steering wheel, the $0.99 dictation app. Doesn’t make a difference. At the end of the day, we’re all grabbing our phone and completely neglecting the road for 5 second intervals. Personally, I get most of my texting done while driving. Tweeting and emailing too. It’s really an irresponsible mismanagement of time if you don’t.
P.S.- Karma is gonna send me straight into oncoming traffic the next time I’m texting, and I’m 100% gonna be the focal point of one of these commercials. It’s gonna be an embarrassing text too, I just know it. My brother holding up a piece of white poster board with “You didn’t like Gilmore Girls cus you didn’t get it” written on it.
