I dreamt of a magic screen that took a half hour to download a two minute video and then crashed 5 seconds into it. I dreamt of a magic screen that it's 4G capabilities were slower in speed than it's 3G network. I dreamt of a magic screen that the cost DOUBLED in three years. I dreamt of a magic screen that would piss me off on a daily basis. And after all of that dreaming, here it is.......... SPRINT

+Robert Mitchum Perhaps I'm a year late - but your literate, and I might add, hilarious response to the wordplay of the commercial cracked me up. Good service?.....Dream on.

This one has always stuck with me.
Steven Baldwin (2 years ago)
I remember when none of this technology existed. so yes...it is a magic screen indeed regardless of the carrier.

good work Jamie!
JustAFocus (8 years ago)
Arrgh, why do some people have to be so awesome? XD I'm just barely learning how to do long exposures and trying out my first mediocre attempts at light painting in "bulb" mode with my camera -- and then I stumble on this video which completely blows me away. My God, that must've taken FOREVER to set up. Just stunning work.
tuuu15 (8 years ago)

Carmen Rojo (9 years ago)
es muy buenoo..
Leftwinga91 (9 years ago)
Light painting, it's a photography technique. I wonder how many pictures were needed to do this, as it could range from 10 seconds to 30seconds+ per shot, and they decided to make an animation out of it. Damn this is good though
Nick Beecher (9 years ago)
indeed it is a form of stop motion
3ntertainer (9 years ago)
yes it is

DaBoel (9 years ago)
That's too much O.O AWESOME :O
Jordan Santos (9 years ago)
jpkm7992...if indeed you called and Sprint has records of it (in the notes), it would've been adjusted. Sprint takes full responsibility of validated billing errors. I work for Sprint that's why I know. I understand you for feeling that way but you should also take full responsibility of your usage. If you have spending limit in your account, Sprint wil automatically shut your service off to protect you from overspending. You'll be prompted to call care.
Derick ILEDAN (9 years ago)
Sprint doesn't suck. It's a very wonderful service. You just need to know how to manage your own acct usage.
fredo69 (9 years ago)
this commercial is awesome...too bad sprint sucks.
Sarah (9 years ago)

Very neat commercial, but having a "magic" screen in my pocket that could do all that wasn't at all a dream of my childhood.
Judah (10 years ago)
Love It!
Dreamer (10 years ago)
Just in case you guys want to know the artist, this is Architecture in Helsinki's song, "Souvenirs."
Martin Sanne Kristiansen (10 years ago)
Architecture in Helsinki - Souvenirs, from the album Fingers Crossed. Nice song, super-nice commercial!
Sudak - Jeff (11 years ago)
does anybody else realize that sprints moto now is something like "download things at the speed of light" ... wireless signals can't move at the speed of light.. I hope people realize that.. false advertisement???
icemaestro (11 years ago)
Can somebody please upload the new sprint holiday commercial?
icemaestro (11 years ago)
Can someone tell me where I can download or find a clip of the new holiday sprint commercial? With the skating?
Conner Bourgoin (11 years ago)
whats it called?
Matt Beebe (11 years ago)
It's an actual (amazing) song.
Conner Bourgoin (11 years ago)
Is the song specifically made for this commercial or is it an actual song?
Ed F (11 years ago)
As much as I don't dream about cell phones, this is simply a beautiful ad. It's just soothing, between the visuals and the music. I usually hate advertisements, but this one isn't so bad.
SGTBizarro (11 years ago)
If you think back when you were a young child (for those of us old than 15 :P) you never actually thought that these things were possible. Hell, when CDs came out, it was incredible! And now we have a superfast, omnidevice that responds to our every whim. It IS almost magical
buttagood4you (11 years ago)
this commercial is so relaxing and just amazing to watch lol is there like a song, or music to this beacuse i love it!
Chad Warden (11 years ago)
I love this commercial
mobiusnight (11 years ago)
The Sprint Flashlight-animation commercial is simply beautiful; both the visual and the musical. The minute I saw it, something inside me knew I needed to be able to see this whenever I wanted...sort of like a good feeling that you never want to go away.
sadie0814 (11 years ago)
i love dis commerical
Charles L. (11 years ago)
This is such a creative commercial. All the lights in video seems as if they really existed with the people due to the portrayal of lights bouncing off of them and the ground. It's something so simple and sloppy looking that could actually elicit a soothing, thoughtful feeling. I like.
jamygabb (11 years ago)
someone that actually knows the song. thank God.
Thomas Bock (11 years ago)
what city is this in?
