OK, Enough with the NBA Playoffs Split Screen Commercials

June 9, 2008

It’s getting about as played as that “Ok, let’s vent…LET’S Veeeint” Coors Light foolishness. I was down with that NBA split screen commercial when it first came out. Sure it was inventive and definitely got that “heart of a champion” feel in there. But then it got too good to ya.

See that Nash-J Kidd joint pretty much sucked. Maybe it’s just something about the different color eyes and hair cuts, but it’s not right and both of these dudes are barely relevant at this point. I will concede that the Zohan/Baron Davis joint was pretty cool, but you should have left it at that.

Now they’re hitting us with the Larry Bird and Magic Johnson installment. Just terrible dude. First of all, these cats look like some horrid beast sitting along side of each other.

Jeez. Talk about a Pan’s Labyrinth special with extra ugly on top! I mean, the crazy baldy v. fluffed hair and brown eye v. blue eye dichotomy is predictable and ok, but that lip v. no lip wasn’t something I was ready for. And that double wide saggy face with the extra meat up in the tank top. It just all needs to go away. It’s all too much. Why not put those dudes in suits or something. I get what you were trying to do, but it’s too far. That’s will be enough.

Now you know what Commercials are hilarious? Those GMC joints with the dude from MadTv.

That cat is funny.
