Joel McHale and Vanessa Bayer are the latest comedians to team up with T-Mobile—the brand has previously worked with Sarah Silverman, Chelsea Handler and Bill Hader—and they're really excited to tell you about its new and improved Jump program. 

Introduced by Bill Hader in 2013, Jump allowed T-Mobile customers to upgrade their phones twice a year. Now, with this $15-per-month option, they'll be able to update their phones whenever they want.   

In the new spots, which McHale helped craft, the host of The Soup and star of Community uses his brand of acerbic humor to convince consumers to try out T-Mobile's new deal. 

"We think Joel is a great fit for our brand," said Andrew Sherrard, chief marketing officer for T-Mobile.
