Took me a couple viewings, but I think I get it, it's a hipster-off:
"Hey ladies, look at me with my antique phone."
"Hey ladies, look at OUR antique phone, it's so ancient we had to find a landline jack."
I used to know a guy who walked around with a rotary handset hooked up to his cell phone back around 04 or 05, it mildly amused more than impressed.
Then a guy farther down the bar sent them a telegram.
Then another guy set off smoke signal warning "C.L.A.P"
Shortly after that, a man in the parking lot laid siege to Carthage and sent them a scroll on foot by dispatching his swiftest Persian boy.
Then a cro-magnon slapped a hand print on the building across the street.
They make rotary phone attachments for the iPhone. It's for when your Hitler youth haircut doesn't say "hipster" loud enough.
They work with any cell phone. I almost bought one because old handsets are much more comfortable to use than cell phones, but changed my mind when I realized how it would make me look.

I miss the days when having a cellphone would mark you as an out of touch prick.
