Sprint's weird Frobinson framily tries to sell the public on its Framily plan
Sprint has done well with its framily plan. Starting at $55 a month for unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data, you can knock $5 off the base rate for each person you bring into the plan, up to $30. You are allowed ten people on the plan, but the lowest your rate can go to is $25 a month. If you want unlimited data, add $20, and Sprint will also allow you to trade-in your phone for a new one after one year.

While Sprint has been advertising the plan since it was first available, lately the nation's third largest carrier has gone off the rails with its marketing scheme. The carrier wants you to Meet the Frobinson framily. This is a framily led by the Dad, who is a hamster. We don't even want to think about what goes on in the bed room.

The rest of the family is just as weird. A daughter, continuously shadowed by a trio of animated birds, speaks only in French. And don't forget the hillbilly son. Can this collection of weirdos sell the public on Sprint's plan?
