Hello, AT&T. It's Time for a Better Ad Agency

So AT&T has a commercial I keep seeing for its laptop connect card. In the ad, the pitchman appears to be on a remote desert island in the Pacific in front of plane wreckage with Amelia written on it. (Ha Ha.) Essentially, the point of the ad is that with the card you can get the internet anywhere.

One big problem--when you watch the ad, quite visible in the background is Honolulu. Most noticeable is Diamond Head. So if the point of the ad is that this card works in a large city, I'm not too impressed. Next time, remove the buildings and other landmarks. Call Iran--they seem to be good with photoshop.
