What the F*CK is this?  How does this sell your service, Sprint?  G*DDAMN!  MY EYES AND EARS JUST THREW UP IN THEIR FIGURATIVE MOUTHS.  I now know the meaning behind that "What Is This I Don't Even" meme.

This was ineffective because I have no clue about anything that happened during this commercial.

Where are they? Why are they dancing? Can they understand the gerbil?

This commercial could be used as a weapon.

This whole commercial series is just mind bogglingly confusing. What does this have to do with their product? Can just anyone attach themselves to your plan(I mean, I remember one commercial where GorDON just showed up univited, and now he's seemingly part of the plan)? Where does the talking gerbil factor in?

I think this line of commercials is written in crayon on the wall of a mental institution during rec time.

I think she's supposed to be a Disney princess stereotype or something. The most punchable one yet if she were to star in a movie, but still...

What a hodgepodge of random people, random activities, and just plain random nonsense.

You all are just sooooooooo unperceptive!!!! 

The point of the commercial is that if you are white & you use Sprint, you'll think you're black!!!!

We must not be on the right drugs. One of us should break into the Sprint marketing brainstorming room and find out exactly what it is they smoke before making one of these.

I was actually almost sympathetic to the hamster in his first appearance, it seemed like he was going to be the sole voice of reason in his whole family, even questioning the use of the word "framily".

I guess he got drowned out and absorbed by the rest of the family, he's never said anything remotely intelligent since.

I don't know what the hell is going on throughout the commercial, but the final shot of 
GordON pushes it past the limit, IMHO.

Why can't they simply advertise their services in a way that intelligent viewers could understand?

I haven't decided who in the framily I want to punch/kill the most, but it's probably a close race between GorDON and Frenchie girl, with Deliverance boy not too far behind them!

I dunno where the hell this family of hipster millennial oui-oui rats came from, but they need to take an extended vacation ASAP ... a very extended one.

I'm not sure which is more of a waste of air time - these dolts or the various KFC home videoing families, though at least the latter gives you some idea of what the commercial's supposed to be advertising.

He sure did.  He was trying to say, "Sonovabeetch, you fruckin' framily idiotas, you make-a me a crazy with this-a disarespectful display."  Fell on deaf, and rather stupid ears.

I watched it again twice, are we supposed to like this crap?

What's the point? The only part that's informative is at the end, but unfortunately it's done in rapid speak.

Because intelligent viewers are not who they are trying to reach.

Intelligent viewers are not their target audience or likely part of their customer base.

They understand that they are trying to appeal to idiots.
