Family time loses with Virgin Mobile

So this ad really rubbed me the wrong way. In a world that is way way way past interconnected through social media to the point people take their phones to the bathroom, now companies are encouraging use to fight each other for data?

I mean yes I know the ad is suppose to be funny and all I really get that but after recently watching an ad run by Durex about reminding couples to make time for each other and turn the devices off and get back to real face time, not the Apple version, it just seems rather disheartening that this is how some companies advertise now.

Come on guys, families these days face enough pressure as it is and now we are actually asking them to compete over data and spend less time together?

Virgin mobile really knocked this one out of the park…
