    I would feel like I had no life if I read that whole post. How did this turn into an argument for atheism anyway? And this is FAR less of a budget than most ad campaigns. Go cry about them. You should praise these guys for their thriftiness.

    So this video proves two things: 1 being that this was just proving that people have money to throw around and 2 the fact that people rather do **** like this instead of donate to starving children.

    This is the world we live in

    Seriously. This is an ad. It's a pretty low budget one too compared to alot of them. It's certainly no teller of the evils of the world either. They'll actually make more money off of this than a really high budget ad, too. It's far more creative and gets tech forum buzz, lots of viewers. Plus, they didn't have to hire any actors because noone special is needed to flip a couple o' phones.

    This is indeed the retail cost of the phone (probably after tax). Retail of the 32gb iPhone 4 is $700 without contract.

    I'm no marketing expert but for those suggesting giving the phones to charity, can you explain how that would generate the same level of advertising as this video? Tv commercials cost tens of thousands to produce so this was actually a very cheap advert and it's probably working. You won't forget the EZ grill in a hurry!
