I'm getting into this commercial. Bill Russell is a straight-up god in my family. Ali is an American icon. A. Rod is baseball. Just the pan across of all these big famous names is great.

Then... there's a trio of fucking clowns and I have no idea who the fuck they are.

Who are these bozos, and why are they in an ad with Bill Russell?

They're the JabbawoceeZ dance crew: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JabbaWockeeZ

And I think that's Jeter in the commercial, btw, not A-Rod.

What's "G"?

Uh, gay?









It amazes me how much companies blow on advertising that looks like it was done by 5th graders. And I typically like Gatorade commercials. Maybe they hired a new agency, but they're not doing them any favors with this stupid shit.

I can't imagine I'm alone in saying that if a company has a stupid ad for their product, I avoid buying it at all costs.

They've changed Gatorade to G. That's it. So now when you are trying to buy G2, you'll get excited because of all the flavors available; then you'll realize that nope, they only have about 2 fucking flavors at ACME and all the other ones are only G. FUCK YOU ACME and fuck you G.

Someone should probably tell you that dance is wildly popular amongst urban youth these days. Someone should also tell you that dance is wildly popular with older demographics, too, judging by the number of television programs dedicated to it recently (Dancing With the Stars, et al).

I'm looking at a bottle of "G" branded Gatorade, and it says the full name "Gatorade" on the label 5 times.

I didn't play anything, I embedded a video. Besides, I embedded that one because it was relatively simple (not a a lot going on), making it easy to focus on the uncanny blend of rhythm and fluidity that the dancers possess.

That's what I always thought. But in my experience with the marketing world, it's always surprising how the best of commercials actually suck, and the worst of commercials are actually remarkably effective. Case-in-point, I almost barfed when I learned that those stupid Capital One commercials actually tested through the roof on recall.

I dunno. The ads are weird, but you have to admit, it's generated a ton more discussion than any of their ads with Jeter or Tiger Woods. How many people remember one of the Tiger Woods commercials? How many know about the G commercial?

The commercials don't make much sense, but I think they're actually pretty effective. At the very least, I'm sure Gatorade recognized that their main audience is a more urban, hip hop crowd, so while people like myself may not identify with it, there's probably a large segment of people that do.

i just got one of those recorder things Monday.
i don't have a clue how to use it.
heck i still can't use the stupid dvd thing! when i want to watch a movie i tell my child "ManChild, please play this movie." and when it's done i call out to him "ManChild please put the tv back on" he just rolls his eyes at me, but he still fixes the damn thing.
