Stupidity in Advertising

Ok, so I caught a AT&Tingular commercial tonight. A woman is calling her husband (who's away on a business trip) to tell him they're expecting. His phone cuts out. She thinks he's stunned, dismayed even. But it shows him literally jumping all over the hotel lobby telling everyone within range. He is jazzed.

Then I saw a second ad. This daughter calls her mom and say she's in Vegas with "John." The mom says "Just don't get married." When there's no response, the mom gets more and more scared. Finally at the end, the mom says "Don't make same mistake I made!"

Then it flashes up a still showing a new phone and says "Great for Dad!"
