I have never seen the G2 commercials. Instead, I offer you the following Vitamin Water commercials.

YouTube - steve nash "the spokesman" - the office

steve nash “the spokesman” – photo shoot on Vimeo

Steve Nash is one funny hoser.

That's the thing about watching as much sports as some of us do. You're subjected over and over (and over) again to some of the worst campaigns. They say the ads that stick with you are the best and the worst. Saved by Zero, Five Dollar Footlong, G2: these are some of the worst.

The Diane Wade one is on a different level than the Zo spot. Why are these people laughing? It's like the end of the Phelps Rosetta Stone commercial when he clicks a stopwatch and says "I told you guys. Under a minute." and everyone laughs. It makes no sense.

Incidentally, has any superstar ever had as little charisma as Phelps? I was hoping after Beijing he'd just go away for the next four years.

Little charisma and the fact that he sounds like he has marbles in his mouth when he talks.

He has a commerical where he doesn't even talk - he just stands there. But hey, he's making mucho dinero and I'm not.

He actually has two commercials where he doesn't talk now: the AT&T one you mentioned and the new Guitar Hero.

Man, this guy is the worst: YouTube - Phelps TV commercial for Rosetta Stone-Funniest/Best Quality

I was just thinking this on my car ride home. I feel mildly homicidal when I hear that jingle.

Bill Simmons' mini-rant on the "Saved by Zero" commercials in his recent column is worth reading.
