Cisco Ad

Have you seen this ad, for Cisco's "TelePresence" videoconferencing something-or-other? M.Bro and I have decided that the guy secretly hates his family, but they have no idea. Evidence: based on the order of questions (i.e., his girlfriend saying she misses him), the call must start just before the beginning of the commercial.

So why does he get off the phone so quickly? There's no line of desperate aid workers in front of the tent waiting to use Cisco's revolutionary whatever. "But J.Bro, maybe the relief org can only afford a couple minutes of airtime?" What am I, stupid? C'mon. You think they can afford $300 whatever-thousand of brand-new equipment, but not ten whole minutes of airtime on it?

What's going on here?
