Nokia: Buy A Lumia 900 Instead Of An iPhone And Get These Russian Callgirls Free! [Video]

Here in America, AT&T’s rather desperately trying to convince people to buy the Lumia 900 by saying it’s a “notch above” an iPhone.

In Russia, though, Nokia’s taking a different tack and trying to get people to buy the new Lumia 900 with this advertisement, in which they seem to imply that being locked into a two-year contract with a garish Lumia phone is like being entombed alive in a metal box filled with bad techno music, seizure-inducing flashing lights and half-a-dozen garishly made-up Russian call girls covered in glitter and reeking of cigarettes and vodka.

What iPhone fan could disagree with that metaphor?

    It’s like the Nokia marketing execs got together and said “hey, people don’t want facts, they already know phones are boring, let’s just have funnnn!”

    it troubles me that you can fins such negativity in being trapped in a small space with overly friendly Russian hotties. But then again, you are Brownlee.
    lol develop a sense of detachment would you? No one takes you seriously, because its always the same thing: Apple is gods gift and everyone else is trying and failing too hard. I sincerely hope your not trying for a job as an actual journalist. Because this stuff is gonna turn Time right off…
