Really? New commercial for Windows 7 phone

My name is Marcel and I'm a BlackBerry user. Have been for a couple of years now. Some people apparently think I have a problem which may be why they directed me to the following ad for Microsoft's upcoming Windows 7 phone.

To be honest, I think it's a cute commercial and rather well done, and yes, it pokes fun at BlackBerry users in the way that Rick Mercer did in his hilarious BlackBerry Helmet segment (from the Rick Mercer Report show). If you haven't seen it, click the link to see how a master does it.

The only catch with the Windows 7 commercial is that it backfires. What it actually says is "BlackBerry phones are so cool you can't take your eyes off of them. Windows phones will be boring enough to let you look at them for a quick update and put them away." Kind of like every other version of Microsoft Windows.
