Sprint Overdrive Commercial Features Masticating Actor and iPhone 4G Connectivity

In this recently released commercial from Sprint, altruistic "Matt" grants his friend "Steve" (ha!) 4G speeds on his 3G network iPhone by way of the Overdrive mobile hotspot. Then he eats an apple—so clever!

Cleaver, yes, but why do I get the feeling Sprint would love to take more than just a symbolic bite out of Apple right now?

As a surprisingly coherent YouTube commenters points out, however, this service is only available in 25 markets.

Maybe one of those markets is yours though, and soon you too will be recreating campy Apple-esque commercials on sound stages with strategically placed actors and props. Maybe! [YouTube via TUAW]
