  • We've all been there.


    You think you're phone's turned off, or at least in silent mode, only to have your mariachi ringtone go off in the middle of a movie, a speech, or at work.


    But unless you've been yelled at by Hugh Jackman, chastised by the President, or have otherwise had your mortification bandied about YouTube, it can't be as bad as these cellphone ringer fails.


    Here we bring you the top 5 biggest cellphone interruptions ever caught on film. Some a cringe-inducing and awkward, while others are hilarious, but all pretty epic. Enjoy!


    5. Alizé Cornet's tennis match interruption


    In a tennis match against Caroline Wozniacki, Alizé Cornet's concentration is broken by a ringing phone as she prepares to serve. The kicker? It's her own!



    4. Hugh Jackman freaks at ringing phone during live performance


    During a live performance in a Broadway play, Hugh Jackman and a castmate are interrupted by a cellphone. Obviously annoyed, Jackman breaks character and calls out the rudeness off the offender. Oops!



    3. Darren Criss' own phone halts live concert


    It's always embarrassing to have your phone go off during a live concert, but just imagine how you'd feel if you were the one performing.


    That's exactly what happens to Darren Criss in this video of him performing Katy Perry's Teenage Dream. Wait for Criss' reaction at 1:20.



    2. Obama responds to "duck ringtone" interruption


    It's Obama versus a duck in this one. While giving a televised speech, the President is distracted by a quacking cellphone, and his reaction is priceless:


    "Where do you guys get these ringtones, by the way?" he quips as his audience laughs.



    1. Best ever response to a cellphone interruption.


    This could very well be the best reaction a performer has ever given to a cellphone interruption.


    The violinist in this video keeps his cool after being interrupted not once, but twice, by a pretty loud Nokia ringtone. Just watch it, we don't want to give away the rest.

  • Blendtec is back with another "Will it Blend?" video, this time pitting the iPhone 5 against the Samsung Galaxy S III

     


    Are you ready for a  ridiculous and nonsensical test which has no merit and which proves absolutely nothing?


    Then, the iPhone 5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S III blender test is for you!


    While most of us are just trying to get our hands on one of the newest and best smartphones, Blendtec, a maker home and professional blenders is busy pulverizing them.


    It's pretty much what it sounds like. With a few of these "Will it Blend?" YouTube videos under his belt already, Blendtec's Tom Dickinson asks the question again, pitting the "the latest," i.e. Apple's iPhone 5, vs. what Samsung "claims to be the greatest," the Galaxy S III.


    The iPhone 5 may have a retina display, and the Galaxy S III may have a bigger screen, but which will withstand the blending?

     


    Tom describes both smartphones, highlighting their most attractive features, and then unceremoniously chucks each into its own Blendtec Total blender.


    While the iPhone 5 starts shattering pretty early on, the Galaxy S III holds in there for an impressive amount of time, but eventually meets its end in much the same way as the completely obliterated iPhone, in a pile of black powder.


    In the end, as the blender lids are removed and toxic-looking black smoke wafts up, we're left having to agree with Tom, who concludes: "I think the real winner is the Blendtec Total blender."



    The whole stunt kind of runs opposite to what we do at Pure Mobile. But even though we've got a mission to help people protect their devices, we can't help but get some sort of sick pleasure out of watching this total and utter destruction.


    Though we'd have to agree with Blendtec's disclaimer: don't try this at home!

  • One need only look to the recent iPhone 5 hysteria, the raging legal battle between Apple and Samsung, or the righteous tone adopted in ads for most of the latest smartphones to know that some people take cell phones pretty seriously.


    Thankfully, however, there are still a few good laughs to be had when it comes to mobile devices, and Pure Mobile is counting down our list of the best and funniest cell phone ads throughout the years. They're a good antidote to some of today's more buttoned-up advertising, which deals in hard facts, or promises some great technical advancement for mankind.


    As much as we like heavy hitters like Samsung, Nokia, Apple and BlackBerry, we'd rather watch a middle-aged French woman breakdance, or the little green Android mascot burp than hear about specs any day.


    Korean Android ad


    We're not really sure what's going on in this Korean ad for Android, but the OS' little green spokes-alien sure sounds like he enjoyed his sandwich.



    AT&T's Family Rollover Minutes


    A mom guilt-trip at its finest. But the funniest part of this commercial isn't even seeing mom's typical “no waste” lecture framed in the context of cell phones, it's dad's resigned and exhausted little sigh. Watch for it.



    Motorola's Stripping Wife


    This older Motorola ad works the obvious appeal of an attractive woman removing clothing piece by piece – imagine the effect on a larger Galaxy or iPhone screen – but there's also a refreshing little punchline at the end.



    Postbank's Rich Husband


    This one isn't actually actually an ad for a cell phone, but we couldn't resist including it in this list, if only for the way it leads you astray right until the end. The ad's rich also handles things like a complete boss.



    Vodafone's Mom Ringtones


    This Vodafone ad from France has a mom acting sexy, looking like a zombie, and breakdancing, all at the switch of a ringtone. Classic.



    T-Mobile's “Who's in your 5?” ads


    These two ads from T-Mobile are so hilariously awkward that they definitely make our “Fave 5” cell phone commercials. One has two buds at odds over a secret crush (note the sly “foot massage” reference to Marcellus Wallace in Pulp Fiction.)


    The other shows a teen boy hopelessly intimidated by his girlfriend's dad. Pops is a little scary, but somehow, you feel for him.




    Dutch Not-So Refreshing Dip


    This Dutch cell phone ad shows that IKEA doesn't have a monopoly on funny Scandinavian advertising. It's got an ick factor, but it's certainly, erm, refreshing.



    Vodafone's Breaking the News Quick


    Sometimes, less is more. So we'll follow the example set by Vodafone in this ultra progressive, ultra-abbreviated ad, and leave things off short and sweet. Hope this list gave you a few chuckles!
