Guinness: Phones down, Bottoms up

BeerI’m not a Guinness drinker but I certainly do love their advertisements.  I think this latest campaign is fantastic; unintended double entendre and all.

  1. I’m an active call blocker. I dare Rachel from Card Services to call me again. Ha! I’ve blotted out that entire range. It’s a little Android app called Blocker – allows pattern based blocking in a limited fashion, but it’s very effective.

  2. I love the graphic.

    I am old enough to remember answering services – think “Company” – Another Hundred People. ” “Look, I’ll call you in the morning or my service will explain.”

    What we do is everyone has to place their iPhone, Droid, Blackberry, tin cans and string on the center of the table.

    All must be powered up.

    The first one to respond to their phone pays the WHOLE check. I have been subject to some weird ringtones – some kept playing over and over again – the group then allows the device to be powered down and removed from the tower. It does require that at the end of the evening the offender is responsible (before tip and tax – this is our game not the server who is putting up with us) for 25% of the bill.

    We have a couple of physicians that are on call and they play the game too – it costs $25 per device (your iPhone, Droid, Blackberry). We give a pass on pagers – but the pager must remain at the hostess stand. And if they have a patient in a critical situation they are excused – but the media stays at the stand.

    Funny we get very few rings.

    Fewer rings than the Broncos – you had to know there would be a shot ;) GO PATS!

    But it is a fun way to have dinner with a group of beloved friends and enjoy once again the way years ago without the chains.

    We also do the same thing when we dine at one another’s home.

    The fun thing we do is that when a guest is welcomed into our (a) home the phone / device is gift wrapped out of sight of the owner.

    It makes great use of the 90% off of holiday wrapping paper.

    It is a test of how well you know your ring tone ;) LOL

    Enjoy – there are so many ways to make dinner parties fun!
