Video shows off new magenta dress chosen by T-Mobile fans for actress Carly Foulkes
T-Mobile has been personified in a multitude of ads by actress Carly Foulkes, whose dotted magenta dress has been the subject of parodies, especially those making fun of AT&T's proposed purchase of the nation's fourth largest carrier. Earlier this year, T-Mobile asked its fans to select a new dress for Foulkes to wear in the next batch of T-Mobile ads.The video below shows the new dress along with a backstage look at the latest T-Mobile commercial, T-Mobile's 4G Wonderland, and the commercial itself.

You can tell how successful a commercial is by how much it becomes part of pop culture, and there is no question that the "T-Mobile Girl" has become a cultural icon. What will happen to her if AT&T's bid to buy T-Mobile is successful? Most likely her character will go the same route as "Speedy" Alka Seltzer, Clara "Where's the Beef" Peller and the Verizon "Can you hear me now?" guy.

She was so nervous in the original ads. I am glad Carly found her groove.

I agree. The way she speaks is odd also, not attractive. And I don't mean the hideous 'aboot' that slipped out end.

She's kinda cute. But who the hell is she? Never seen or heard of her before. And why in the hell is this article on PA? This site is about PHONES, not some spokes model for a company ffs!

shes very pretty, but she doesnt have that sam sex appeal that Catherine Z jones did. She has more of the girl next door look.

She alright, but the T-Mobile girl that Virigin Mobile used on their commercial was way hotter. But s***, I'd still bang them both !

Why did I just waste 2mins of my life watching that?

She reminds me of Robin from "How I Met Your Mother." And they both say "aboot"... maybe there's some human cloning for TV personas we're not aware of.

Unlike Speedy, Clara, and the Verizon Nerd, this chick is hot and should stick around awhile...BTW she's Canadian people hence the "aboot"...as far as the dress goes, I liked the shiny one...
