Justin Bieber leads T-Mobile’s #UnlimitedMoves ad for the Super Bowl

If you’re going to run an advertisement during the Super Bowl, you better make it flashy. The 30- or 60-second spots during the biggest sporting event in the United States are always meant to be memorable since so many other things are going on at the same time. People are in front of screens watching the game while talking, laughing, and eating. Because of this, it’s advertisers make the most of their multi-million dollar purchase by putting together big-budget ads.

T-Mobile, who typically runs high-energy ads throughout the year, is back again for Super Bowl LI with an ad featuring Justin Bieber, Terrell Owens, and Rob Gronkowski. It focuses on the history of the touchdown dance from the beginning of time to today.

In case you’ve forgotten, tomorrow (Jan 20th), is the day that the 45th President of the United States is sworn into office, with the President-elect, Donald Trump, becoming the President for the next 4 years at least.

With this in mind, AT&T has announced that it has spent 2-years planning planned for the day, with LTE capacity set to be increased by 400% in the area.

Sprint’s branding relaunch of Virgin Mobile is still coming in 2017

Sprint has struggled to stay competitive in a quickly changing market, especially since T-Mobile has been incredibly aggressive on the lower-end of the spectrum. This has forced the carrier to focus on just one segment of their business at a time, and since Sprint has itself spread over multiple brands, some portions have lost quite a bit of ground to competitors.
