Just saw Maria's new Nike commercial...

and very unimpressed to say the least. She's flurting with LeBron James in that commercial although he is never in the picture in person.

first, she is very close-up in this commercial and not her best angle, so she looks unattractive imo. second, she talks a lot, but doesn't sound too convincing. perhaps because of being nervous? finally, it's not funny or cute. so, overall, it sux. Sorry, Maria, I like you, but it's the truth.

PS. The agency responsible for this embarassment should be fired IMO.

Re: Just saw Maria's new Nike commercial;;;

I saw the other one, with the cheeleaders. That was even worse.
This one is on youtube, it's been posted already. It looked like a high school kid was doing photoshop on it.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

Re: Just saw Maria's new Nike commercial...

I thought the cheerleader one is much worse.
Nike is trying to be artsy, but the cheerleader reading the statement, it's unwatchable.

I think Nike is going to film a lot of these. They look very low budget.

Why, it's the Maria's blemishes that show?

Re: Just saw Maria's new Nike commercial...

Well, it's not that much the angle or the close-up they shot, but rather the strain on her face, caused most likely by forcing herself to talk fluently and to use that stupid intonation they probably asked from her.
It's definitely not her style of talking. And the photoshopping is crap. I find the cropping of the water bottle over the USO cup wich Maria holds almost insulting. At least they should've cut out the cup entirely. In one word, f**k you nike and your lack of ideas.
