Get on the phone to AT&T now and screeeeech at them for being *glitter* H8RS. Tell them that their efforts have failed, because the big unicorn will fly high above the corn fields one day soon. Seriously, AT&T has probably been flooded with calls from vicious Glamberts ever since The New York Times published their Idol conspiracy theory article last night.
The Times says that AT&T dropped by several viewing parties thrown by Kris Allen fans in Arkansas to teach them how to send “power texts.” Power texting allows you to send 10 or more texts at once just by pressing one button. AT&T, who is the only carrier you can use to send votes by text, also gave Kris Allen fans phones to use.
The company confirms that they did have reps at two parties after the final performance episode last week. They said: “In Arkansas, we were invited to attend the local watch parties organized by the community. A few local employees brought a small number of demo phones with them and provided texting tutorials to those who were interested.”
So why would AT&T and Idol do this? Well, some say because they didn’t want a sparkly precious unicorn prince to win (translation: not the gay).
You know, Glamberace didn’t need the shiny crown anyway. He will be have an illustrious career screeching rock versions of show tunes in Las Vegas. And Kris will become the most requested coffee shop chanteuse of all-time. They will both be fine.
