Nicki Minaj gets two-timed by a Verizon customer with a data cap in new T-Mobile ad



In what just might be the funniest television commercial related to the mobile industry for the year to date, T-Mobile makes sure that consumers know what could happen to them if they don't have a carrier that offers unlimited data. Take poor Steven. He's sitting down to dinner with the Snapchat logo at a restaurant when all of a sudden Nicki Minaj appears. And boy, does she look like a woman scorned.

"You've been streaming my videos all morning and now you're with this thing?," she says, indicating the Snapchat logo. "No, it's not you," says a flustered Steven. "It's Verizon." Because of Steven's limited data plan, he has to choose between "Snappin'" and watching Nicki Minaj's videos.

As you can imagine, this doesn't make the former American Idol judge very happy. Turning to the Snapchat logo Minaj says, "Let's get us a man with unlimited data," and the pair walk out of the eatery together, presumably looking for a guy with T-Mobile One. The carrier's new plan offers unlimited data streaming at 480p. The first line is $70 a month, the second line is $50 monthly, and the third line is $20 a month. For a limited time only, the fourth line is free. And if you want to see Nicki in HD, for an extra $25 monthly per line, T-Mobile One Plus will make it happen.

"Unable to find enough cash in the couch to buy theApple iPhone 7?" There's no tangible price difference between this two so what kind of an iFanboy are you Alan F.

Didn't Samsung fans call iPhones overpriced? Wait that's right they are the same price. Oh so the overpriced comment was about quality and features? IOS gets updated first, get apps and games first and has far better support, so maybe that isn't the point, It must be quality, an exploding battery sure does scream quality. Yup you guys sure as hell won there. Also I don't care about Apple, I like Nexus and now Pixel phones, but the Samsung fans are the worst, I just target them.

Samsung fanboys, as in trolls? I'm also a Samsung fan, as in user, but I'm not here to troll anyone.

I know you're good Jedi, but you have to admit the Samsung trolls that exist are far worse than others, they never stick to one thing and just want Apple plain dead. The problem is Android gets dragged into it and that's what I don't like. I love Android but Samsung is the worst thing to have happened to it.

Lol Samsung put Android on the map. It's a relevant buzzword and discussion point because of Samsung, as well as more people experiencing Android based devices because of them. Sure, Android can survive if Samsung never existed, but there's no denying Samsung proliferated it hugely and gave it the boon they have. Samsung is also the reason other Android OEMs are being more competitive with their hardware and software offerings, because they see that it works through Samsungs success. You're the one who sounds like you have an agenda quite frankly.

No one was comparing the two phones. I was merely bringing forward two things that might make someone sad so that the video could cheer them up. Why can't we just be fans of all smartphones no matter the OS? Regards, Alan F.

The thing is bro that as phone reviewer horns journalists they have to remain neutral at all times, regardless of their preference. Once they start to show obvious fanaticism we'd all know which devices will get the better reviews and thus their credibility gets tainted.

With your exercise seems like samsung owners are desperate and apple owners are rich. So, maybe you're one of those guys thinking ,- i've a iPhone - i'm rich. But you realize that you work for someone, not for yourself - then you are not rich. Just imitation of a rich guy. Most of Apple users are just that.

Alan, maybe, just maybe, when you get a more mature crowd, or/and if you move to the New York Times. As Luke Skywalker once said, "you asked for the impossible". :)

No dude. You're a f**king idiot. If that was your intention then theres no reason to set an example as to why you'd be sad.

Not quite. As long as Sofia Vergara, Salma Hayek, Shakira and Vida Guerra are around, Nicki and her fake junk can wait in line.

I would eat that ass for days!! Isn't T-Mobile doing the same thing as Verizon? Didn't they start to nickel and dime customers for stuff like if you want HD videos it's $25 and if you want hotspot it's more $$. All these used to be standard.

You probably live with your mom, and have never eaten anything more than junk food.
