ALLTEL: I Hate Chad
I don't like Chad in the Alltel wireless commercials. There is really no rhyme or reason as to why I don't like him- I just don't like him. I'm sure he's a really nice guy when he's not doing the Alltel stuff, but I can't make that assumption. I am going to have to continue not liking him until proven otherwise. I can't pinpoint what I don't like about him. Maybe it's his presumptuous, excessively mussed, trendy haircut. Maybe it's that he has no personality and comes across as a deuschebag. I don't know.
Now, the Alltel commercials themselves are just plain stupid and the actors playing the rival phone carriers are also annoying. I understand that the point of the commercial is for the rival phone carrier people to be annoying, but I think they are unintentionally super-annoying.
It's not as if I dislike all wireless pitchmen. For instance, Catherine Zeta Jones for T-Mobile was, well, awesome. The Verizon wireless guy is cool, too. He seems humble and interesting.
In fact, I bet the Verizon guy could beat the living crap out of Chad. I would like to see that in a commercial.
