Have you seen the T-Mobile “Losing Your Shirt” commercial yet? In the ad, the cute T-Mobile girl, Carly Foulkes, asks a shirtless guy representing the iPhone why he’s shirtless. The answer: He had to give the shirt off his back to AT&T to pay for his expensive data plan.
Ironically, AT&T recently announced the intent to purchase T-Mobile a couple of weeks ago. Barring FCC approval, the acquisition should be done by the end of the year. That would give AT&T the 4G network they need. Then again, they could adopt the customer service that T-Mobile is famous for. You never know.
Will The T-Mobile Girl Have To Take Off Her Shirt?
So if T-Mobile becomes part of AT&T within the next few months, then what does that mean for Carly Foulkes, the cute actress in the pink dress representing T-Mobile in their commercials? Will she have to “lose her shirt” too because they will all end up on the same AT&T data plan?
NOTE: Carly Foulkes is a Canadian model and actress who is best known for her role as the T-Mobile Girl in the company’s advertising campaigns.
A Blatant Rip-Off Of The Mac Vs PC Commercials
I was more surprised that T-Mobile got away with the commercial. This is a blatant rip-off to the Mac vs PC commercials. I would guess someone would have slapped a lawsuit on the campaign. Especially since it was an Apple commercial.
Who Should Have To Lose Their Shirt? AT&T, The T-Mobile Girl Or Everybody?
More importantly, what do you think about this? Out of the 3 people pictured above, who would you want to lose their shirt? AT&T, the iPhone or the T-Mobile girl? Feel free to Twitter me @geekazine

agree. it’s definitely a Max vs PC commercial ripoff.
take it off!
I’m glad you raised the lawsuit issue since these commercials are the same format as the Mac vs PC commercials. It reminds me of when Madonna was sued for recreating Guy Bourdin’s photographs as scenes in her music videos. Who won that lawsuit anyway?
