Probably belongs in GT, though.

It was ok, but did they really need Ortiz and Urlacher? They could have just used any large men instead, and the commercial would have been just as good or better. What is the point of having celebrities if you can't get a feel for their personalities?

That's a good point. Now that I think of it, I would feel exactly the same way about the commercial if they just used random guys instead. I wonder how much money they wasted getting Urlacher and Ortiz :-b

I laughed when I saw it, and remembered who the commercial was for (even though VitaminWater is too watered down for my taste), so it did the job it was supposed to do. ;-D

Because no one's going to talk about it if it's two random guys. The fact that two high profile athletes were in it got people talking about the commercial (obviously...a thread was even made about it) and then people start to talk about the product.
