Can Dale Earnhardt Jr. Text?

Hilarious new Sprint spot and app promotes safe driving

Editor's Pick

This absurd mystery out of Leo Burnett and directed by Hungry Man's Scott Vincent tries to get to the bottom of a puzzling text message a mechanic receives. It reads, "Dale Earnhardt Jr. can't text." But who sent it? Dale did. What?

Exactly. The spot's a hilarious demo of Sprint's new "Drive First"app, which blocks and responds to texts while you're on the road, letting people know that you're unavailable to connect at the moment.
