For a while Tabby was dating one of the chipettes bit alvyn got all sore at him, and polly pocket turned out to be a cleptomaniac. Shulda called her poly pick pocket. Now I hear he's trying to get the power puff girls into a burlesque dance troop called the Tab-letts. Stay tuned...

*LA TABADOR*-The female version would definately be an awesome way to wake up the typical koodo commercial as we talked about --Hope that the higher powers are listening:)

Without showing her hands/thumb up of course, but Koodo is a man, he cannot become a woman neither be Human mascot. he should be graphically designed mascot - I won't vote for this amzonian beauty.

You know - El Tabador may like this amazonian beauty - but big problem - Many of our customers would not - and that is who we are aiming this idea at.

Also, can you see El Tabador and that Amazon tango-ing down the street together?

i'm a straight white female and i would totally vote for her - i don't care if *I* like her, i think el tabador would go completely gonzo.

i envision a series of commercials that follow a story arc where el tabador thinks he's the shiznitt and she's leading him a merry dance bec she's got (gasp!) independence and (eek!) a mind of her own!

You just said that is the Big idea, if only Koodo can come with El Trabador tangoi-ing with That beauty together, it will attract both men and women to buy Koodo products to be in harmony with each others - I guess.. that what it should be!!

I think he's good alone personally. He's able to communicate with humans and is obviously enjoys himself like in the party commercial. If I felt bad for anyone it would more likely be the android robot

This all sounds like a great idea, however let us remember that El Tabador is a no strings attached and a no commitment kinda guy. So, it would be hard to introduce a woman :) Unless they have an open relationship LOL

"no strings attached" and "no commitment" sounds great - until you start thinking of it in terms of loyalty to the customer. then i start thinking "easy come, easy go" and it doesn't feel so great. after all, any relationship is a two-way street, regardless of the type.

i think a "romance from afar" - where he's completely and absolutely in love with her but she sees him as the reliable, dependable Big Brother Best Friend would be great for new commercial ideas.

Maybe he could live with two women in a rented san Francisco apartment. They could just tell the landlord he's a homosexual. Each commercial Were could be a small miscommunication that ensures hilarity will arrive. Aww who am I kidding...Threes Company.
To be honest, I am getting pretty bored of the El Tabador commercials. It's usually the same phrases except for the new "El Flabador" phrase for Christmas lol. I would really like to see them bring in new characters, or even people for a change.

Maybe you should introduce her in a commercial drawing attention to the fact that commitment isn't such a bad thing when you want "the best" (referring to the contract options on the iPhones, etc)

El Tabador needs a villain or enemy, a wannabe luchador that represents another carrier. and they compete in a match, for fun of course, but Tab doesn't really have to enter the ring, he's smarter, and sends in a body double to settle the physical stuff, while Tab sits back and watches, with maybe...."El Tabitha", sharing a corn on the cob with mayo....

While many have spoken on this, it lacks equality. Why should El Tabador be with a woman? What if he wants to be with a man? (Seinfeld said: "not that there's anything wrong with it")

Toys R Us had their Mascot: Geoffrey (ironically he came out when I was 4) but eventually they added a whole family. (first a girlfriend, then they married, etc)

"A" mascot is a singular. Add to it, and you dilute your brand. Either use it, or move to another.

El Tabador is a womanizer and thus probably wouldn't choose to have a mate as his mate.

I think adding a girlfriend they could mention that the get free calling between the 2 of them on the same account somehow. As Koodos whole thing is no contracts / no strings attached it would have to be an open relationship between the 2 of them though.

Oh... C'MON!!! When is this society going to grow up and evolve beyond the dark ages??? El Tabador is short, gross, fat and is sexually inadequate with an ego as fat as his belly.

Get real, guys! The Amazonian would NEVER have anything to do with him in the real world. You all seem to think that you are desirable to any beautiful woman you see. No matter how ugly, creepy or disgusting you are at whatever age you are. Stop the delusions! Buy a new mirror!

If El Tabador is going to be paired up, then show some equal gender rights and pair him up with a female more appropriate to his stature, weight and behaviour. NOT someone completely out of his league.

Or better yet... show just how contemporary you are, Koodo, and pair him up with a boyfriend! You'd be the first!

Paul hardly anyone posts their own picture as their avatar, it's called protecting yourself on the internet. Chad if you are gonna talk about how you aren't a good looking guy etc.; then why do you not have your real picture posted? He is still talking about looks regardless of which side it is on. The only person you called out is Lesley? And Chad, let's see your wife? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I have heard of many men speak of their "smokin' hot wife" and yet not so much. The Amazonian image being presented here is a societal stereotype and all Lesley was pointing out is that if we want to get to a place in the world where this isn't the ONLY version of beauty, then we have got to stop making this particular face/body the constant source of what is considered female beauty. Koodo is diverse in their plans, service, and much more which is why I have been a client for so long. So I hope that they don't cave to this stereotype and become just like the rest of the cruel media that causes so many people to feel insecure about their bodies.

And Chad, you are overcompensating your point with the "moans of ecstasy". You are clearly trying to prove something (PS: Women fake it all the time, just an FYI)

1. I am using the picture provided to me by koodo because I am a member of the program mobile master and they asked me to use it.

2. I never said I nor anyone else was smoking hot

3. Clearly I was using sarcasm with the ecstasy comment.

Chad,

Do you mean me, the part time Santa isn't smoking hot?

I mean the suit is really warm on a cold day: in a mall with kids, it's boiling hot at best with steam. Smoke, well, I am sure it has happened.
