Boost Mobile is apparently some sk8ter boyz from Down Under in a joint venture with Nextel (chirp!) and Motorola. Hence a campaign that would probably be insulting to old people, if they could make any sense of it at all, by having senior citizens carry on as if they were Gen Zers, spouting nonstop wigga mallspeak . But the target is sure to find it funny, and as for the oldsters, who the hell cares what they think? Super, played over a Fabolous track: "Designed for young people. But it's just more fun showing old people." The scripts are so good and so well acted, this is sure to be a series on the WB next month.
