Figliulo & Partners Rolls Out More ‘Framily’ for Sprint

Figliulo & Partners continues their slightly absurd “Framily” campaign for Sprint.

The agency launched the odd, nature-defying campaign back in March with a series of four ads. Now they’re back with two additions to the Frobinsons’ story. In “Count On It” (featured above) Chuck is out on the road with framily member Gordon (pronounced Gor-don) when his motorcycle breaks down. He calls his father (who, you might remember, is a hamster for some reason, voiced by Andrew Dice Clay), who he assures Gordon always picks up. Despite being in the middle of a frame of bowling with the wife, the father answers and rushes (or rolls) to the rescue. Yup, this campaign is still a frucking weird one.

Another spot, “Spin Off,” features Hamster Dad and NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon. Stick around for credits and that spot after the jump.
