Those Poor Deer!

I went to see Intolerable Cruelty today with my mom. After playing the trailers for the coming attractions they played an ad for Nextel mobile phones. It was the one where they describe building their national walkie-talkie service by attaching antennas to thousands (millions?) of deers' antlers and show images of frolicking deer complete with suitable radio gear. Halfway thru the ad I look over at mom and she has this very confused look on her face. I had to contain my laughter.

No, Mom, that's NOT how they did it.
