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. :o

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

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.

OMG you make it out to be the worst thing since Cat Women, its not bad at all and there is nothing wrong with it and nothing to be embarrassed about, there are a lot worse ones out there.

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

Can someone post the cheerleader one The other one is not bad at all but i would like to see the other one.

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?

btw, my favourite Maria's commercial is I feel pretty. I can watch that one non stop.

PS. I also like Alexa is featured in that commercial. :bounce:

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.

Well I don't think there's something wrong with the angle. It's just not the best idea for a commercial. It's kinda lame. But I have seen much worse commercials in my life.

It ain't better. At least in that one Maria looked great and strong, not like a humble housewife carrying laundry to the washing machines.
I wonder how much LeBron got paid for this though.

Dec 26th, 2006, 11:02 AM
:lol: to me that was absolutely awful & lame. the way she spoke especially when she said "I bet you look cute in tennis shorts" & just the way it was set out overall.

don't blame maria, blame nike :tape:

the "I feel pretty commercial" was a bit better than that other one i reckon, but in the long run they were both lame i must admit :tape:

but they were both funny only cause they were lame :lol:

Maria should have done a Nike commercial with LeBron James in 2004 when they were both young breakout stars on the road to greatness. :) That was the time to do it because Maria was the female face of Nike and LeBron the male face of Nike. And their Nike television commercial should have included cross training with Sharapova shooting baskets and James hitting tennis balls. That would have been cool. :cool:

Her face is puffy and she looks old. In general the whole commercial is silly, it could have been much better.

I guess Nike and IMG want Maria to do different kinds of tennis television commercials like the "I"m So Pretty" commercial and her new Nike commerical mentioning LeBron James. But the truth is Maria has never done a commercial that I've been impressed with and that dissapoints me. :( I would rather have her do a powerful Nike commercial showing her developement through the years in film footage including highlights of some of her big wins and wonderful emotions celebrating big wins. :yeah: But instead we get Nike trying to do unique commercials for Maria. :scratch:

The best tennis commerical I have ever seen was Anna Kournikova's 1998 Adidas commericial from Moscow. :D The music was dramatic and the film footage of scenic Moscow and St. Basil's Cathedral from a distance was sensational. :) :cool: Her commercial also showed Anna practicing in a broken down Moscow tennis club in the wintertime. You have to see it to understand how good this commercial was. It was very impressive that the then 16 year old Kournikova could come up with such a fine hard hitting commercial that had nothing to do with her glamour or fame. :worship:

lame commercial indeed
it starts with this ...trumpet and ends with this sentence, by far the worst and most unintentional hilarious part of this commercial, which all really cracked me up, it was kind of ":speakles: ... :haha:"
"if I run more miles than you...", "If I DON'T beat you..." OMG, BAAAD ^^
neither imaginitive nor witty

I loved that commercial.
Another adidas commercial I liked was the one with Muhammed Ali fighting his daughter and the one with him jogging with all the adidas sponsered athletes.

I like the nike soccer commercials of Ronaldinho, Rooney and the Brazilian football team.

I think it's cute, and we're getting to hear more of Maria, which is good!

The make-up and lighting weren't good, and they made no use of that smokin' body and legs, a real tragedy.

They should reshoot it with some full-body shots and betting make-up and lighting.

So true. Maria is the most beautiful woman on the tour. With her movies star looks she's going to go a long way evern after she retires from tennis. :lol: :lol:
