Paradise by the cell phone light

Normally, I'd pretty much ignore any TV commercial for a cell phone. At least until it's time to renew or change.

It's time. Or coming up soon, anyway.

I suspect many people are that way. You know, in the middle of a contract with Alltel, so when the "Can you hear me now" guy comes on, they tune out.

And cell phone companies know that. So they try to make their commercials more interesting.

Which explains the new AT&T commercial for their "GoPhone" product.

Have you seen it? I'm sure you have. It stars Meat Loaf, Tiffany, and Adam Cagley (who lip-syncs the Isaac Young vocals) as Dad, Mom, and Junior, with the commercial being based upon Meat Loaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light."

If you don't remember the original song -- surely you do, right? -- or if you haven't seen the video, it stars Meat Loaf, of course, with Karla DeVito lip-syncing Ellen Foley's vocals.

Again, the commercial is for the AT&T GoPhone. Their prepaid phone.

Which might be a good thing.

Might keep the customer from singing, "Now I'm praying for the end of time, so I can end my time with you."
