    Did anyone else catch the commercial that just played a few minutes ago on Monday Night Football? It wasn't for any specific device, just for the BB brand in general.

    If you saw it, which BB appeared in the commercial? I couldn't tell.

    It looked like the Storm to me, but I couldn't be for sure... that's my guess.

    Just rewinded the DVR and I'm thinking Storm... looks a little longer than the Tour, camera looks Stormish...

    I saw a commercial with Mariah Carey in it. Was that the one you say?

    I thought it was the Onyx... they did show the trackpad, and say 3G.

    Why did this post get moved to Off Topic when it is about the Blackberry commercial?

    I barely noticed the one with Mariah Carey but I did sit painfully thru the montage of a female breakdancer... Jesus.

    It made me ashamed to have a blackberry.

    This is the commercial I saw... there was another one with Mariah Carey?

    I don't know why this was moved either, had the same thing happen to me on totally unrelated message board last week. Apparently mods hate my posts all over the internet

    Nothing at all, that dreadful commercial just happened to feature a female breakdancer.

    RIM is trying to market to a younger, more relaxed user instead of business users so we get a 30 second commercial of a breakdancer slowly getting better then showing off her "awesome" moves to her friends to some crappy song that perfectly fits a montage.

    And at the end of the commercial, up pops the Blackberry logo. Pray tell, WTF does breakdancing have to do with a phone? They don't show a single BB model through out the whole thing.

    I hate moron marketing executives who come up with sh!t like this.
