This iPhone 6 "mind reader" commercial from AT&T is funny, or creepy, or both

This iPhone 6
AT&T decided that it needed its own iPhone 6 commercial, so it made one titled “Mind Reader.” The idea behind the ad is simple: a guy walks into an AT&T store and, before saying anything at all, an AT&T sales rep tells him: “Yes, we have the new iPhone!” - because, to further quote the rep: “everyone’s coming in for the new iPhone.” There’s almost no real dialogue, since the AT&T employee - a friendly, young female - already knows what the customer wants and thinks. She can literally read his mind.

Funny as this may be, the thought of someone - especially a stranger - actually reading your mind is rather creepy.

Anyway, as you may know, AT&T is selling both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus - the largest iPhones yet - since the very first day Apple released them (September 19, to be exact). The second largest US carrier is also offering double the amount of data included in its Mobile Share Value plans at no extra cost (though Verizon and Sprint are now offering more data, too).

Maybe she is just good at recognizing the familiar look of iZombies as they shuffle into the store?

This. It's just makeup and a bit of hair styling. Nothing special.

The girl is cute, not sexy. Marissa Mayer, I don't get the attraction at all on why people like her.

Lol! While it's true that this girl ain't the prettiest around, it's a safe bet that she's a damn sight better looking than anything you ever pointed your dirty beak at...! There's this great meme with a cartoon guy lookalike complaining about the looks of a girl that he's never gonna get within a mile of - probably fits you like a glove! :-D

Did this commercial get shorten? I remember see it once where the last mind to mind conversation when something like this, "That's not going to happen!" and his thought was, "Oh!" Did this happen or was I day dreaming?
