Announcing a Sprint… Kind of

Last week I noticed a Sprint Wireless ad that featured a track announcer narrating a phone call as if it was race (or something like that). It sounded like Trevor Denman (one of my favs… I LOVE it when he says “and he’s FULL OF RUN!!”).

I’ve only seen it once and haven’t been able to dig it up via google or Sprint’s site. Is there a racing meme in advertising? (sorry, I’m not an academic, I swear!). I think it’s interesting given the Claratin ad with the Jockey.
