Over the years there’s been a huge bombardment of advertisements, from shameless web commercials to Google ads, and it makes you wonder how far companies will go to push their products. The Onion Google Phone Parody answers that question with this hilarious video about "ad-supported phones from Google meant to drive down the device's cost."

This video really outdoes itself with its believable content. Throughout, you’ll have to constantly keep telling yourself that it’s just a parody and these phones aren’t real. The best part is probably the ring tone that mimics your voice while it advertises. Stats for Shameless Phonevertising Trending: Older & Warm
