Magnited We Stand! In Ignornace You Fail!

Kudos, props, thumbs-ups, and cheers to Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas!!! Alamo Drafthouse is well-known for it's non-tolerance of ANY texting or cellphone usage during it's movies. They have humorous "Public Service Ads" before every movie showing explaining what will happen if you are caught using your mobile phone or texting during a movie - YOU WILL BE THROWN OUT.. PERIOD..

One of Alamo's newest PSA/Warnings played before the movies begin features an angry voice-mail from a "texter" that had been toss'd from one of their theaters. The video, which is NSFW perfectly illustrates what is wrong with America/Kids/Texters today.

WARNING - this video is NOT SAFE FOR WORK - if you are offended by foul language, stupidity, ignorance - or if you think it's ok to use your phone during a movie, DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO.

I whole-heartily urge every one of you to go to the Alamo Drafthouse Facebook page and give them a "Like" - and/or if you have an Alamo Drafthouse in your area, support them by going and watching a movie!

.. Oh.. I would also like to hear from any Rtards that defend the actions of the 'texter' or that think that texting/talking on the phone during a movie is protected by the United States Constitution and/or is a God-given right.

 I caught a shortened and censored version of this last night on Anderson Cooper 360's "Ridiculist".  The unedited version is priceless.

I was going to post this!  I freakin' LOVE it!  The sad thing is, the dolt that left it is probably pretty proud of herself that she is "famous."  *insert eye roll*

I'd be willing to bet she tries to sue them in some moronic attempt at vengeance... she already seems to have some skewed idea of her 'rights'...

Re: Magnited We Stand! In Ignornace You Fall!

My friend posted this a few days ago on facebook... It makes me sad that I've never been when they were all around me... I still can't figure out why she tries to say she was only using it to find her seat, and then later admits to texting... or what she thought her message would accomplish...

Personally I wonder if it's fake...

I get so annoyed by people who think they have the right to do whatever they want, everywhere they go... there's a difference between a free country and private property.

I think theaters should be allowed to put cell phone jammers to use.

Magnited States of America !

I doubt it's fake.. although, if it was, it might help renew my faith in the future of America..sadly, i think she is all too real. Alamo has been doing these PSA's for a while now.. and heck, just take a look around and you'll see there are (too many) people that really ARE this ignorant/stupid/clueless/moronic..

I wonder though, if she mispoke on the Magnited States of America .. Gawd, I hope it was just a trip of the tongue...

Re: Magnited States of America !

That wasn't the only slip up she had with her words... I'm more inclined to think she was trying to say too many things at once and just tripping over her words... when I get annoyed/angry I end up butchering sentences/words/grammar out of frustration...

I also think whatever odd accent she had is part of the blame... she sort of sounded like Sandi (president of the fasion club) from Daria...

On top of the Alamo Drafthouse's probably somewhat exaggerated attempt to make her look like even more of an idiot (not that she needed help)... we tend to be more likely to hear a word pronounced a certain way if we see it written in that form... kind of like how if you put subtitles under a dogs barking/singing/whatever that sound a little like english words, we start to 'hear' those words.

Or maybe she's a complete idiot that really thinks we live in the MSA
