Serena Williams acing volleyballs. Agassi singling into left. The Texas tickler. I can't believe that everyone's not talking about this one. What a great commericial.

By "great," you meant "long," right?

I dunno, I guess I can't get as excited about CG as I did back what I wasn't such an old curmudgeon.

It's not the CG that gets me so much as the feelings the commercial evokes- the excitement in the announcers' voices and the final line about Armstrong able to do anything get me fired up to hit the road and trian for that next race.

I love that commercial too. I really want a Micheal Vick hockey Jersey. Nike has consistently done some of the best commercials ever IMO. The Charles Barkley " you cannot win without the ball" and the Marshall Faulk ad wheres he being chased by the "government" are two of my favorites.



I don't want you to be the guy in the PG-13 movie everyone's *really* hoping makes it happen. I want you to be like the guy in the rated R movie, you know, the guy you're not sure whether or not you like yet. You're not sure where he's coming from. Okay? You're a bad man. You're a bad man. You're a bad man, bad man.

I was hoping to see LeBron in goofy checkered golf pants and matching hat hitting a hole in one :)

Kenny Wheaton's gonna score! Kenny Wheaton is gonna score! 20, the 10, Touchdown! Kenny Wheaton on the interception, the most incredible finish to the football game!"

Or Tiger Woods doing a slam dunk. Hello. That's one of the best commercials I've seen.

While the Nike commercial is cool, there are times when it's painfully obvious there's some CGIness going on. However, the Ali adidas spots (which premiered first) are much better technically. There's two-one where Ali (in footage from When We Were Kings) is jogging with several athletes, his daughter and Kevin Garnett among them. And then my favorite, where Leila Ali is boxing her father (from Ali/Foreman, I believe).

Nah, the new one is about as impressive as it gets. When they cut to Agassi in the dugout and it looks like he's got a dip in, I was like WHOA now that's good work.

I like the commercial, but I don't like how they're playing it ad nauseum. I really have only been watching wrestling, Angel and Survivor over the last few weeks and I've seen it way too many times for me to really dig it anymore.



Maybe I should put something clever down here....

Nah.

I thought the commercial was a nice novelty when I first saw it, but now it's the Return of the King of commercials, seemingly clocking in at a whopping 4 hours 45 minutes and 37 seconds.



Caped Boy: Excuse me, ladies. You may remember me as the guy who came to dinner a few weeks ago with underwear on my head. My name is Keith Stat from Milbourne, New Jersey. State bird, the mosquito. And as you may have heard I am recently a crowned class B dungeon-master. So if any of you would like to play D&D today, please speak now or forever hold your peace.
[He chuckles, and there is an awkward silence at the table.]
Caped Boy: Anyone? Alexa!
[Alexa gives him a withering glare.]
Caped Boy: Maybe you would like to join in? We do need a druid, and you have definitely cast a level 5 charm spell on me.
Alexa: In your dreams, douche-bag!
Caped Boy: Douche-bags are hygienic products, I take that as a compliment. Thank you.
[Keith walks off]
Alexa: Ewww!

CRZ!?! I have to agree with you on the LONG part. Sucker is like a minute and a half. Everytime it comes on it is like a time warp.

Ditto, by the time all the footage is shown and the darn "Just Do It" pops up...you feel pretty damn lost.
