Sprint continues its mockery of the holidays


In September, Virgin Atlantic sought your awkwardest vacation photos in a collaboration with the blog Awkward Family Photos. Now, Sprint has gotten on the awkward wagon and is giving you a chance to make your own awkward portrait with four great templates from the same site. Options include: the ever-popular holiday-sweater nightmare; a kid with an afro and footy pajamas in front of a painted winter scene; someone dressed as a giant present; and an inexplicable picture of a woman in ski gear who's been hogtied with Christmas lights. Awkward Yourself may never reach the pinnacle of holiday inanity that is Elf Yourself, but it certainly fits well with the humbug spirit of Sprint's other holiday ads. And the picture options really are awkward. I only wish my own holiday-sweater pictures were so ho-ho-horrendous.
