Roll Over, Beethoven's Mom

Whenever this commercial for AT&T's Rollover minutes comes on, a call goes out throughout the entire house and everyone comes running to see "the mom look". We laugh, and laugh, and laugh . . . apparently, according to my sons, she is me.


Ellen Stewart (aka Ellie/El) said...

I think we all have one of those, but I have not been compared to this lady.

My son does tell me I use a teacher voice out in public to "correct" little kids. I know I also have a teacher look that's pretty potent...

Too funny, maybe you could file for royalties...

Truth be known, as Ellen said, we all have that "look." It think it's in the genes...It is funny and I have laughed out loud myself!!! Thanks! Cathy

Yeah, that actress must be a Mom; she has it down. I guess mine is a variation on this look, with a a bit more creasing between the eyebrows going on, and a smidgeon of "eye bugging" -- a little something extra I learned from my dad... (Oh, dear... Some picture I just painted of myself, huh? )

Quando ho finalmente capito cosa volevi dire, ho riso come una matta e sto ancora ridendo.
E' vero, sei tu, soprattutto all'inizio del video. ah! ah!
ah! e ancora.. ah! ah! ah! non riesco a smettere.

So funny you should say this!

I never related to this commercial until, while staying with friends, the husband exploded into laughter during "the look" part of the commercial --- He said to his wife (my dear friend), "Honey, that is so you!"

Then I could picture it. And now I look forward to the commercial . . . but we are back home with no cable so I guess I'll have to look on YouTube.
Now I will be picturing TWO of my (hmmm, interestingly enough, Italian) friends!
