Default And you wonder why.....

.... The Weather Channel, news reporters and others, state what seem to most, as the obvious.

Here you have a thunder and LIGHTING storm and the guy is getting ready for a bike ride.
Smart move.

How about fixing the roof leak and loose shutter.

WTG iphone!
What executives approved this?

If you fish in South Florida there are probably going to be times that you are stuck in lightning storms. I am glad that it hasn't been my time yet, but at times it gets pretty scary.

Must be.
The commercial has one believe there will not be any danger in riding your bike (being in a lighting storm) as long as you buy an iphone, a waterproof one, and have it with you.

Ride on Brother, Ride on.

i was just wondering, "what a-hole goes for a bike ride when he has a full bucket of water under his leaking roof. Man up and fix your roof before you go peddling around in the rain." But then again, I do need a waterproof phone as the last few have bitten the dust by getting wet when I was doing things like fixing the roof in the middle of a rain storm.

... You want to impress me, throw the phone in the bucket of water while fixing your roof... then take it out, call your friends and tell them you just did man shit, and to bring beer over!!

THAT, would have made a much better commercial.
Storm is all around.
Raining like hell.
House has a roof leak and in need of other repairs during the storm that cannot wait and the man has to go out in that weather and fix it.
He has to take his phone with him because he is expecting his wife to call at any moment to let him know she is alright and on her way home and for safety reasons in case he were to fall and need help.

Maybe he had to ride his bike to go pick up supplies to fix his roof?

$2000 bike, $750 of gear, $500 iphone... zero common sense.


So many better ways to show that the phone is waterproof. Show the man running around a park in the rain looking for someone while talking to his wife. "Don't worry... I'll find him." Fear on both of their faces...Rain is coming down harder... Wife looking out the window... phone rings. Wife picks is up... Man says "I found him, we'll be right home." Relief comes across her face.
Door opens, husband is standing there soaking wet holding his iphone in his hand and the family dog in the other... Little boy runs up to dad and the dog. Mom and Dad smile at each other.

Much better commercial.
