Last Commercial Post: Classic Honda TV Commercial
Whenever I feel lazy or sleepy I will now watch these videos, vicariously play football, and “tackle” my assignments.
Nike has always been on the cutting edge of advertising and these two commercials only add proof to that statement. I appreciate how the first commercial celebrates hard work and discipline, two character traits that have lost weight in today’s society. Unfortunately, Shawne Merriman is featured in the second ad, not really a guy who exemplifies these traits. A known violator of the NFL’s steroid policy, Merriman should not be glorified.
