Radio Spot Dials Hotel Phone Number For Your Lazy Ass

As if we weren't already lazy enough what with voice activated menus and all manner of click and swipe, we can now sit on our ass even longer and have a radio ad dial our phone for us.

And come on! It takes more energy to get the phone than it does to dial it. This seems like a lot of work: Getting off your ass to get the phone. Pushing the button for a dial tone. Holding the phone up to the radio's speaker. And actually being able to make the decision you want to dial the phone with just thirty to sixty seconds of advance warning.

Oh right. We don't have to write the number down and we don't have to waste any valuable brain power to remember the number so we can then dial it if the radio spot didn't do it for us.

And the march towards Idiocracy continues.

And what's with the strange Barry White-ish voice over on the demo video?

And...just becasue technology makes it possible doesn't mean we should do it.
