Classy German Droid Ad Depicts Other Smartphone Committing Suicide

A German-language ad for the Motorola Milestone — that’s the European counterpart to the stateside Droid — depicts a depressed rival cellphone watching an advertisement touting the Motorola Milestone. Depressed by the Milestone’s superior features, the rival cellphone — we’re not sure what kind, but it looks like it has a 1.5:1 aspect ratio — begins to shake, flashes a yellow sad face on a red background followed by a yellow caution sign on a red background — and proceeds to commit suicide by jumping out a window. A cat looks on.
