1. you have a Nokia 8801 cell phone!
2. uhh...
3. umm...
4. err...
5. (sfx: crickets)

I am just finishing my marketing degree and this ad gives lots of hope.

If copywriting is really as easy as finding a word that relates to your product, and has a double meaning - regardless of the relevance of either of the meanings to your message - then I'm in the right business!!

Sure glad I didn't get suckered into that law degree.

I get it! Speaks volumes, and it's a, uh, loud phone! Loud phones are good, right? Right? Hmm. Guess I don't get it.

I think it also says:
1. I'm eurotrash
2. i'm hung like a horse
3. i fly first class
4. i drink belvedere

If it drank belvedere though, how could it speak volumes? It would have no lips.

I think that the main function of cellphones in general is to enable people to speak volumes about a LOT of private and vaguely inappropriate things in public. this one is no different. (for example: on my way to work today i heard a girl on her phone saying "i like him, but he just can't make me come." yikes. like anyone really needs to know that.) speaking volumes, indeed.

I could totally make her come. I just have to set my enormous cell phone on vibrate mode, and hope someone calls me while I'm holding it up against her.

this ad has got an absolutely massive picture of the product in it, and that's all that matters, right?
