The Washington Post report:  Sprint’s latest ad, which features Sprint chief executive Marcelo Claure asking a customer what she thinks of Sprint’s competitors, specifically T-Mobile.

“I’m going to tell you a carrier name, and I want you to basically tell me what comes to your mind,” Claure says in the video, while the screen displays the words “Real questions. Honest answers.”

“T-Mobile,” Claure continues. “When I say ‘T-Mobile’ to you, just a couple of words?”

The customer, a white woman, immediately replies, “Oh, my God, the first word that came to my mind was,” before pausing, “ghetto!”

“That sounds, like, terrible,” she follows up. “I don’t know. … People who have T-Mobile are just, like,” she takes a long pause, as if carefully planning her next words. “Why do you have T-Mobile?”

Then the short ad ends with the Sprint logo fanning out as the screen fades to black.
