Wow, forget the gadgets, CES this year is all about the DRAMA! First Michael Bay’s onstage meltdown and now this? I’m surprised TMZ isn’t there right now. Anyway, on with the story!
Last night at CES in Las Vegas, AT&T (a.k.a the Evil Empire) was hosting an exquisite party, complete with a performance by none other than thrift shopper Macklemore. The drinks were flowing, attendees were hobnobbing when suddenly an alarm sounded, meaning only one thing. An intruder clad in a magenta t-shirt and a blazer. It was John Legere, T-Mobile CEO and head of the rebel alliance.

Needless to say, the guards quickly caught up to Legere and ejected him from one of the nearby airlocks. No problem for Legere, however. Just moments after being thrown into space, a helmet quickly covered Legere’s face, and a flash of light was all that was seen by onlookers. One word: jetpack. In an instant Legere was back in rebel space, safe from the AT&T baddies and that god awful song about thrift store shopping.
This comes just days after AT&T announced a plan to offer T-Mobile customers up to $450 if they jumped ship. This sort of move was rumored to be unveiled by T-Mobile at CES this year as part of their Un-carrier strategy, and it looks like AT&T’s spies got that info and decided to copy T-Mobile and try to beat them at their own game.
T-Mobile will be unveiling Phase 4 of their empire squashing Un-carrier plan tomorrow at CES in Las Vegas. For Legere, it should be just like shooting Womp Rats back home.
