I think I get it - think it's somewhere in the neighborhood of we all try our hardest to get through our different life struggles - regardless of whether we are old, overweight white dudes or NBA champion basketball stars - and could never do so without the assistance of a certain energy drink.

Could be wrong though - and also think it's a pretty crappy ad.

THIS is the KG video that should be shown many, many times per game during all NBA telecasts:

That's great. Looks almost like a WWE interview.

I get what they're trying to show, but what a crappy commercial. I have no idea who thought that would be a good spot to run.

That KG video is funny as hell though. "you should be butt-ass nekid"

heh... i thought that it was a ok commercial, there are not to many good commercials to compare it to, the SOBE superbowl commercial was the stupidest thing that I have ever seen.....

but this was ok, i mean it had the, we all have different problems but we have different ways of dealing with them, and at the end we all like gatorade...

I agree with Ramesh - lousy ad - and with JJ - we all like Gatorade.

Think one of best parts of the KG / Sager video is when he throws in 'lime thong' on the list of items to burn :laugh2:

I could do without KG telling me how awesome it is that he's never had to deal with "hard news" and such.

@patrick - yes, the lime thong was good touch. :laugh2:

there are only so many ways you can sell a sports drink, guys. especially in a country where hardly anyone actually needs a "sports" drink.

I'm with ya there, brother. Embarrassingly lame.

I like that KG commercial much better than this other Gatorade campaign:
