T-Mobile Taps SNL Star Bill Hader For New JUMP! Marketing Spots

Screen Shot 2013-07-10 at 3.29.00 PM

T-Mobile’s new JUMP! commercials are awesome as we welcome Saturday Night Live star Bill Hader into the Magenta mix. There’s plenty of detail about JUMP! available in a earlier post, but you should really watch these right away.

P.S. T-Mobile, if you want to do a commercial with Ball Hader as Stefon, I’m totally ok with that.

    These ads are just spot on…..

  • Chris

    This sounds awesome. I’d love to be able to do it but I’m not sure I wanna spend that much money…

    • KreepyA$$Kracker

      Spend much money on what?

      • Chris

        You have to pay the “new customer” price for the phone every 6 months or however often you trade in for a new one. That’s at LEAST $200 if you’re getting flagships every time. More when you talk about something like the Note. It’s not cheap is all.

    Finally! Some good marketing spots from T-mobile! The fictional character things were pretty good, but these are great!

  • Juan Pablo Darquea

    Contract plus huge Bill equals you paid the same thing for your phone but you cant upgrade any time before the 2 year period HTC one 200att plus Bill like 30 or 40 more then tmobile thats 360 more a year two years thats more then 700 tmobile HTC one 640

    lmaooo I love it all. 2 of these commercials reminds me of my best friend, she goes through phones like crazy.

  • TMoFan

    These ads are hilarious! Can’t wait to see these air.

  • Alex Lopez

    If they do a Stefon in a nightclub in New York with a buch of his insane characters, then that would be the greatest commercial EVER!!!!

      “Come inside a T-Mobile store and you’ll be greeted by a human Roomba!”
      “Human Roomba?”
      “It’s that thing where a midget rolls around on a skateboard eating garbage off the floor.”

      • Alex Lopez

        “In addition to Human Roombas with every new line of service we will give you a free Human Boombox”
        “Human Boombox”
        “It’s that thing when you carry a midget on your shoulders and sings gangster rap to everyone.”

    For those that talk about Samsung’s “gimmicks”, the air gesture would have been mighty convenient in the bus stop commercial! LOL

    • LOL true

    • bleeew

      You wouldn’t pick up the phone.. The iPhone would have cut the man though.

  • Adrayven

    So this replaces t-mobiles smartphone warranty basically.

    If you already pay for the t-mobile warranty, $2 more/mo is a no brainer. Might as well.. Doesn’t mean you HAVE to upgrade every 6 months.. could be 8 or 12 or 13.. Just earliest is every 6 months..

    Might get more people seeing some value in their T-Mobile extended-warranty. Probably more attractive to those that don’t want to Craigslist or eBay their phone…

    • Oleg O.

      This exchange is only 2 times per year. Warranty exchange can be done 100 times per year.

  • not for me but choices are always good.

  • Scott

    Well, that was a waste of Hader.

  • JB

    Where was this style of marketing when they launched the UNcarrier campaign?? We have to agree that this is better than Rob Kardashian and Xzibit (spelling?)

  • taron19119

    I like them right to the point matter fact it explains the point of using tmobile

  • MO

    WOW i saw the whole Tmob blog online the whole time and i am highly super impressed i am glad i made the switch to TMob a few months ago from ATT,, NJ here and i have 35 down and 15 up …. Great markerting all the way around…

    These are pretty funny but Urinal and Bus Stop are kind of false advertising. Fine print from T-Mobile’s Jump page, “Your current, financed handset must meet the following conditions: be in good working order, no liquid damage, no broken or cracked screens, and the device must power on.”

    • ProductFRED

      JUMP includes phone insurance as well (hence why there’s a deductible if you lose or break the phone). It’s an upgrade and insurance in one.

  • steveb944

    These ads are phenomenal! Great to see these.

  • kalel33

    Didn’t that last ad, where he was constantly have the to recharge the phone because the battery was junk, just slam phones without replaceable batteries?

    • decalex

      Man, I think it’s perfect. It’s surprising how many people just “get used” to having a phone that lasts like 2 hours (once their battery is EOL).


    Well done…

  • chum lee

    Um. With Jump you can’t upgrade if you break your phone….it goes through insurance….these ads are very misleading.

    • Zach Csolti

      Actually, if the phone is damaged you can pay a deductible and upgrade your phone. It is insurance and this upgrade program in one.

  • rob

    These are gold
