The following is an open letter to AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson:
Dear Mr. Stephenson,
The undersigned urge you cease airing the above television commercial known as "Falling for You."
It is deeply offensive since it causes viewers to get a little choked up when aired. This is uncalled for. With its sensitive acoustic music and clips of an adorable couple separated by distance, but kept in touch via your services - the commercial is almost too sensitive and sweet to bear.
And finally, when the guy texts a picture of his girlfriend as he walks up behind her? She runs to his welcoming arms as the commercial ends. We, the undersigned, do not need this type of sensitivity and emotion bringing us to tears every time we turn on the television.
Additionally, the commercial implies all men should do something sweet and sensitive for their significant others, placing undue pressure on the undersigned to live up to the commercial's adorable appeal. This is too great a burden for the undersigned.
We the undersigned will stage a full boycott of your services until this commercial is taken off the air.
