Maybe A First For Me

I pride myself on not being easily offended, but the current AT&T/Yahoo commercial bothers me. The word "offended" is probably too strong. Perhaps "uncomfortable" is more appropriate. The set-up: A couple in bed receives a middle of the night phone call. The husband answers as his wife looks over his shoulder. The guy expresses incredible concern, and says something along the lines of "are you sure?" and "is it him?" The punch line: He then he gets up to confirm that an NFL player on his fantasy football team is injured. I uploaded the commercial at youtube here. [Link will come online momentarily.] Yeah, it serves it purpose by getting people (or me, at least) to talk about it.
