Unentertaining Video Promotes Sprint's Mobile Entertainment


Hoping to cash in on a bit of Numa Numa and William Hung viral fame, Sprint has launched a knowingly goofy video clip in which a bunch of guys get all jiggy with themselves in an attempt somehow...that's it...sell phones! That's right. Sprint has seeded the goofy video which points to gothookedup.com, a site that promotes Sprint's mobile entertainment services it feels are far more entertaining than lame online video clips. It's a nice sort of nudge-wink effort that does it's thing without being clandestine about it. Whether it goes anywhere, only Sprint will know.

Just got a new sprint phone actually and I got a free trial of the "Sprint TV" feature. It is aweful.

Anything good you have to pay for and theres only a small selection of clips that you can actually access. I's a complete rip off..anyways not worth the 20 bucks they charge for just the Sprint TV feature (they charge you a couple bucks to watch a preview of a movie?!)

Needless to say I won't continue the free trial after the month.
