Fun on a Friday: The best cell phone announcement ever.

I’ve got a love/hate relationship with the pre-show Cell Phone Announcement.  I love that it gets everyone to shut their phones off (sort-of).  But I hate that it slaps the audience with a “real-world” request right before we ask them to check reality at the curtain.

But we have to do something, because the texting/tweeting/talking that goes on during shows has to be curbed.  And just wait until everyone is wearing Google Glass or Samsung Watches!

One idea of what we could do is in the video below (click this link if you can’t see the vid).  Enjoy it, and enjoy this first Friday of spring!
