Thanks Ad N.
The 'Narwhales' must be some mythical uni-sharky thing.

Actually they do exist, I've seen pictures of them and no I'm not talking about this animation.

Wait a minute is it Narwals or Norwhales or Narwhals! *breaks brain*

"Good luck forgetting that"

Unless, of course, you already watched this video over 5 years ago and already forgot about it in the meantime, right?

The horn Narwhals have are actually a tooth that grows through their face.

No clue what it's purpose is, but males rub them together to bond...

What a stupid commercial. Just saw it during the Sprint Unlimited, expecting the screaming goat again. Makes me miss the pin drop by Candice Bergen. Those were the days.
Sick and tired of Charter Spectrum (and Flo!)

Yeah. I was also assaulted by it. Twice! I would expect something like that from a local used car dealer or furniture store. Come on Sprint. I know you have more than fifty bucks in your marketing budget!

Sprint digging up old memes in a desperate attempt to get "with it" and being smarmy, smug jackasses in white text on silver background again...business as usual.

What in the world does this Narwhals thing have to do with selling cell phone plans?  All they do is irritate, annoy and repulse potential customers and chide them into having to forget what they just saw?  It makes no mention whatever of the plans benefits or that Sprint is the best choice.

I'm pretty shocked that a Weebl's Stuff animation made it into mainstream advertising. Most of the stuff on the site has been taken down, so maybe Sprint picked this up at some sort of going out of business sale.

Isn't the Narwhales thing like 5 years old or something like that? Can't they find a more current meme if they feel obligated to go that route?

Sprint, you've hit a new low! These things in this abortion look like Unicorn limpet hybrid fetuses! Also reminds me of Beanie And Cecil. (from early 60's) This one may be bucking for a worst of 2015. 


And here is this awful piece of sh*t
The singing sounds like some drunk druggy rock douche wannabes croaking as they take it anally. Was never a fan of Sprint. (personal poor service)
I approve this message.

Now I'm curious what was the other videos on Weebl's site. Were they just as annoying? Were they explicit? Were they more entertaining? Dang it man I need to know!!!!

Most were pretty annoying, but I don't remember anything explicit. Some of the "On The Moon" toons were kinda funny, but the site is riddled with broken links and deleted videos now.

Their most famous video and the one that put them on the map was "Badgers" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIyixC9NsLI

They've never really updated their style since, EVERY song of theirs sounded the same, I'm not surprised they seemingly dried up and we haven't heard much of them for a long time.
