NSFW: Jonah Hill Congrats Bill Hader For T-Mobile Marketing Campaign

When Bill Hader left Saturday Night Live, many were left wondering where the funnyman would show up next. Low and behold Hader shows up as the face of T-Mobile’s JUMP! upgrade program, an appearance which had a few pundits scratching their heads. Well, Jonah Hill breaks down Hader’s decision in this Comedy Central clip straight out of tonight’s roast of James Franco.

Xzibit Is Back And He Wants To JUMP! Your Phone

Oh yes, Xzibit is back and while I resist ALL my desires to insert a “Pimp your Ride” joke, he’s one of a half-dozen or so new videos T-Mobile has released promoting JUMP! and #hate2wait. Other videos include Olympia Sanya Richards Ross, Sean Rash, Joe Johnson, Rich Malambri, Ike Taylor and Julissa Bermudez. In all honesty, I’d love to see T-Mobile bring a stronger name to bear with this campaign, or at least one that won’t … [read full article]
