Usually I see annoying travel-related ads and I just grumble. But I’ve decided to share them as a regular series so we can talk about how badly they suck. I’m going to start with this new one from the latest issue of Wired magazine. It’s probably running lots of other places too.

I get the point they’re trying to make—that AT&T has the best international coverage. That’s something worth touting.

But if you’re going to England just to keep chattering with everyone from home on Facebook, then…why go to England? ¬†Wouldn’t it be better to talk to new people instead—ones in the location where you are standing and walking?

This is so wrong. It’s not a vacation if you’re still tethered to home.

Hey AT&T, Can we go back to the cool painted hands ads instead?
