Check out two new ads for Sprint including one Pokemon Go themed spot
Last month, we told you that actor Paul Marcarelli landed a new gig. Marcarelli, best known for saying "Can you hear me now?" on Verizon's television ads from 2002 to 2011, now appears on commercials for Sprint. The nation's fourth largest carrier is trying to get the word out that the reliability of it's network is within 1% of Verizon's pipeline, but costs less than Big Red's service.

Sprint is slowly building up momentum. Today the carrier announced its fourth consecutive quarter with a hike in net postpaid phone subscribers. And the company reported its lowest churn rate ever for the postpaid phone category. Sprint also revealed that it rolled out its tri-band LTE Plus service into 23 more markets during the three month period.

Besides reporting its earnings today, Sprint unveiled a couple of new ads that star Marcarelli. Amazingly, the first spot that aired in June drew 8 million viewers on YouTube thus proving that we are all suckers for nostalgia. Meanwhile, we've embedded the new ads for your viewing pleasure. One of them shows Marcarelli playing Pokemon Go. The second spot shows the pitchman taking an Uber-type ride sharing service when he gets recognized by the driver.
