Sprint Capitalizes on Internet Cat Craze with Adorable New Ad


I'm endlessly intrigued by the recent stream of cat advertising for items completely unrelated to cats. The latest example of this growing trend is a commercial for Sprint, promoting their new Nexus S 4G phone. The ad promises a device so powerful, that now you can "fill the internet with even MORE cats!", and features glimpses of viral video stars such as Nyan Cat, Kitten Eating with Chopsticks (Our friend Cooper from Sweetfurr!), Surprised Kitten, and Kittens Playing on a Slide.

I probably still wouldn't switch, but hey, they got my attention!

Thank you!!! I have it and have been busy trying to figure it out...so far so good!!! They have the cutest kitty app you can download (which of course I did lol).....you talk and he repeats what you say. You can feed him milk, pet him...sooooooo cute! Thankfully Sprint gave me an upgrade a couple of months early (of course they did cause it is the most expensive phone they have, which I found out today)....thank goodness for the upgrade though! I am still figuring it out...should keep me busy for a while! :)

Maru shoulda been in the commercial too! Ah, but he's probably under contract with Fresh Step.
