If Cell Phone Commercials Were Honest – Honest Ads (iPhone, Android)

If Cell Phone Commercials Were Honest – Honest Ads (iPhone, Android)


– Let me ask you something. How important is it for
you to feel connected? No, not to your friends and family. I mean to people you
don’t really know or like across the Internet. If the answer is “very,” perhaps I can interest
you in this pocket box. Introducing the iHorton BS, what number are we on? 8 (laughs). It’s functionally the same as the BS7, but I gave it some barely
noticeable upgrades and put a different metal case on it, so now it costs $850 (chuckles). Rose gold, we made that one up. – But I got my iHorton BS7
just a couple months ago, and it’s working fine. – Oh, jeez. One second. (phone beeps) Just sent out an update. – Oh, okay. Yeah, it’s bad now. – Glad to hear it. See, I can use anti-piracy
laws to force updates on you that make your pocket
box objectively worse. Oh, and if you want to sell it or give it to a family member, I can also “lock” your pocket box so it has no second life value. Even though it’s yours. And I will. I guarantee it. – Wait, this doesn’t make any sense. It says my memory is already full, but I basically just got it. – That’s because pocket box comes with a handful of stock
apps you’ll never use and which are impossible to delete. Oh, and if you don’t
update them regularly, they can cause the whole
thing to freeze up. That’s called built-in obsolescence and it comes with every
box, free of charge. That’s my promise to you. Now before I forget, I legally need to say that your pocket box may not be safe to keep in your pocket. Something about waves
or exploding batteries. I don’t have to be more specific than that thanks to the neat little phrase, “Caveat Emptor” or “buyer beware.” It basically says we don’t
have to tell the truth, because you should assume
pocket box companies are going to lie a little
right out of the gates. Anyway, the BS8 is twice as fast, weighs negative pounds, and can repair your
relationship with your father. Kind of trust me. Yes sir, you may be thinking to yourself, where are these little gifts
from the heavens created? Heaven? Close, warehouses. We find it’s actually easier and cheaper to have workers make them for pennies and we put nets around the factory so they can’t kill themselves
in the middle of their shift. So you see, Heaven has
nothing to do with it. Enjoying your new iHorton, son? – Yeah, I mean, it’s got a
bunch of obvious design flaws and my bill just went up for some reason, but I don’t know. How do I look? – Grand! And that’s exactly why you need one. I’m not really selling you progress. I’m selling you the feeling of owning something new and cool. And can you really put a price on that? – Well, I paid it in installments, so it’s actually more. – I can. That price is eight
hundred and fifty dollars. Which is a lot. I agree, but if I charge you less, you don’t seem to want to buy it. You seem to prefer things
that are overpriced and it’s frankly, weird. The IHorton BS8. Sorry, BS8S now. It also takes phone calls, but you won’t answer them. Okay, I’ve been Roger.

  1. Every time I watch one of these "if ads were honest" videos, the intro makes me think I'm about to listen to DJ Alice – Better Off Alone…

  2. I would have added: phones made of raw materials extracted by your favorite African slave and, in the end, all the "broken" phones end up polluting African and poor countries, such a beautiful industry…

  3. Literally nothing about androids, except "may explode" thing, which applies to anything that has lithium-ion battery in it. Actually, scratch that — any battery. IPhone never exploded? Leave it in the sun, then put in your pocket, next to your big balls, which you must have, if you're putting HOT Li-ion in your pocket. Let's see what happens.
    Android can be forced to accept upgrades, but with just little bit of knowledge you can go back to your previous firmware literally at any given time, even while driving a bus full of people on a busy highway, and eating pizza at the same time. Lots of androids come with pre-installed bloatware, but magic wand called root can get rid of them in a blink of an eye, and then can be safely removed, so that you won't void your warranty, AND in between, can be used to significantly improve your phone's performance, if you have at least basic experience with linux, which btw you can actually install in there and use your phone as a portable PC. You can even run Steam and full PC games on it, if it's powerfull enough. Haven't seen iphone do that

  4. Dang this is so accurate I remember buying me s6 edge when it came for 600 bucks and it was a crap load of money for a phone. I was so in love with that shiny new thing I didn't even wanna transport it in my pocket haha I was truly I love with the shininess and not the technical progress hahaha

  5. "The iHorton BS8 is the most innovative smartphone ever. I mean, sure, it's the same as our last one, and there are tons of phones that come with crazy things like projectors and cameras that pop out of the phone, but our work Way better than those fragile and temperamental things. Well, at least they do so long as you break and or replace them every 6 months. After all, there's no need to repair them when you could just buy a new one! Even if repairs aren't that expensive, we can just jack up the price until you buy a new one.

  6. LOL I still have a BS4S – none of the apps work anymore because the app updates make the apps only compatible with a BSOS that isn't compatible with my BS4S. They expect me to pay over a grand for a BSX that will be obsolete this year but I won't be buying any more BS products 😃 My BS TV isn't even compatible with YouTube. I'm surprised the "People's Republic" of China allow BS companies to exploit their citizens and use them as slaves that aren't even allowed to commit suicide.

  7. Please do a skit on how property taxation destroys the American Dream and how forced car insurance has driven up car insurance premiums just like Obamacare.

  8. Buying trash made to screw you electronics is not as bad as forced car insurance and property taxation that has destroyed the American Dream.

  9. Wait an f'n minute…
    You mean i have to watch a parity commercial to get the truth?
    Phone companies are lying their jew asses off, and "updating" my phone into garbage?
    I choose to believe samsung/apple, and believe the lie, it is current year dont you know

  10. The producers ought to make videos on government waste of tax dollars, global warming scam, and the fraud of social safety nets, but the producers are cowards, so they won't.

  11. Awesome! Very on point and true. Gotta love the 2.1K+ butt-hurt iph0ne aka crackphone losers who were offended by this!

  12. The trend in mobile of paying so much more, for useful features being taken away, **cough HEADPHONE JACK cough cough** is the reason why my OnePlus 6 will be the last smartphone I ever own. It's the last OnePlus with a headphone jack and the last one that was sub-$600. Maybe the baseline 6T was, IDK. Either way, I'm over it.

    I know I can do a damn sight better with $1000+, than buy a $2 tracker box for myself.

  13. I think you have changed my mind about buying a new phone. Honstly all what we need ,or technically use, are just a few of these features but as you said we buy feelings 🙂

  14. And lets all quit saying "i got this phone free on a whatever contract"…no phones are free yo, its financed, you still pay for the phone!?..if you lease or get a loan for a car…its not a free car right.

  15. It is effin ridiculous how everyone is so addicted to these things! They came out strong in my mid 20's but I didn't get 1 til I was 30 something. It's off now. Just so you ALL know, giving in to these companies & not controlling your addictive tendencies is, I'm pretty darn sure, 1 or more of the deadly sins. When I look around at people sucked into this crap, it breaks my heart that I won't get to see you in heaven & sickens me to imagine how many spirits are gonna be taking up residence in hell or purgatory. You know inside of you what's right so WHY DON'T YOU LISTEN TO YOURSELVES!!! This is 1 of the reasons I stay home & find REAL things to make me happy in my own life. Oh yeah, & STOP USING PLASTIC YOU IDIOTS!!!

  16. "I've tried charging less but you just don't seem to want to buy it. You prefer things that are overpriced."
    Ah yes, Giffen goods.

  17. The irony is I have been contemplating getting rid of my phone once the contract runs out. Not replacing but doing away with it all together.

  18. Don't forget to text so while driving so you can kill yourself and others around you. Plus every new version is less repairable and more breakable so you can spend more & more continually to keep those net jumpers employed while destroying the environment. 🤣

  19. If you need a phone
    List out the specs you need (specs list should be something really useful to you, not something like animoji or AR…..)
    Find the cheapest but quality wise good option
    If it is a new entry to the market wait for an year(for it's next version to release)
    Then buy it.

  20. Nowdays most i phones and androids are pretty much doing everything a person needs. I wonder why on earth some people buy phones who cost 800 -900 € and not those who cost 200€ it's pretty much the same idiots, except some characteristics who actually you don't need in fact

  21. my iphone 5s is already dead and my parents wants good grades for a new phone My freaking phone was working fine but after the 12.4 ios update it fucked up

  22. Bought my Motorola smart phone for 90 bucks and used it for two years, then bought another. Never buying a bigger more expensive nameplate for answering calls and texting.

  23. Lol. Have an old phone with only calls and SMS (use it primary). Smartphone use only occasionally just as a book reader or for browsing internet, when I'm lazy to sit near the PC. That's all. Never understood that obsession with Androids and iPhones.

  24. “my bill went up for some reason” frr 😂 I paid the rest of my bill for my iPhone 10 which was $850 over the phone with Verizon, and somehow they only put through $800 and left the $50 still past due. Open my mail a month later to find my bill had gone up to $1225. I couldn’t afford it and now my phone is out for collection. Really mind boggling

  25. Very funny ad. But I’ll never share it because that would bring people to your channel and that asshat doing “Some News”. Sorry folks.

  26. They just keep telling you the truth about this world but almost everyone of you just don't want to accept it!
    Will came o e day when they will show you the reality of this World and still you will not accept it until will be to late !
    Like 2000 years ago: Iisus come here and people killed him saying he is just a normally person, and now majority of the world pray day and night / morning and evening to him to forgive them daily bad things! Hahaha what a stupid ! Almost no one pray for forgiveness for killing him ….
    Same with all others thing in this world….

  27. And here I am stuck with my 3 years old phone, with 1 camera n bla bla… hmm the only reason I'll upgrade is the battery life is coming to an end otherwise I'll stick to it only 80£ ^^
    P. S. it does take phone calls!!
