In addition to the much publicized Wipeout, ABC is ready to premier another of their newest reality show creations in just a couple of weeks. The show is titled I Survived a Japanese Game Show and it should provide a hearty helping of laughs as Americans try to compete in whacky Japanese-esque stunts and contests. However, after seeing Rafael Nadal’s and Pau Gasol’s performance in these Spanish TIMEFORCE commercials, we’re wondering if I Survived a Spanish Television Commercial might make for a more entertaining 30 minutes.
Game 1 of the NBA Finals was spectacular on Thursday night with the Celtics topping the Lakers by 10 points, 98-88, in Beantown. From Paul Pierce’s four-point play to his injury and heroic comeback to Kobe Bryant’s alley-oop flush late in the third to Kevin Garnett’s monster two-handed dunk off a rebound that basically sealed the victory, there were a whole lot of memorable moments in the series opener. However, there’s no doubt that this was absolutely the best 30 seconds of the night.
Listen up all you guys with wives and girlfriends. With new episodes of American Idol and The Real World running tonight, you’re going to have to be pretty clever to pry the remote control out of your ol’ lady’s hands. Let’s face it, you know you want to watch the pair of Game 5’s in the NBA tonight and you know you want to watch them on the big screen. So, if you need a blueprint for how to get the tube to yourself then just watch this.
Lots of kids look up to Kobe Bryant. They want to talk like him, dribble like him, dunk like him and attempt to force trades like him. But what most kids don’t have that Bryant does is some serious hops and a crew of special effects guys.
A lot of people have given Kobe Bryant crap about being a selfish jerk, but he’s taken numerous steps to improve his image both on and off the court and nowadays you might as well scratch selfish right off your “Reasons Why I Hate Kobe Bryant” list. Bryant has been the ultimate teammate this year, playing through all sorts of pain in order to benefit the Lakers as a whole. And the mentality isn’t just limited to hardwood; he’s dedicated himself to his sponsors in the same manner. You know that recent commercial he did where he hurdled a speeding car? Well, that wasn’t exactly all peaches and cream.
Everyone knows Kobe Bryant is more than a superstar, he’s a superhero when dons the Lakers purple and gold uniform. And just like the original Man of Steel, Bryant can leap tall buildings in a single bound. Okay, so maybe he can’t, but apparently he can leap moving Aston Martins in a single bound.
A golf ball, a golf club and a hacker are a very dangerous combination. Throw a couple brewskis into the mix and we’re talking downright scary. Thank goodness for cans and innovative Heineken commercials.
Shaq is totally confusing us. One minute he’s on the bench with the Heat, the next he’s heading to Phoenix for a physical. And sandwiched in-between the two, Shaq strangely spent some time as a horse jockey. (Poor horse.) Apparently, he didn’t stick with that career endeavor because there was some serious jealousy and hostility going on in the locker room. Turns out the horses aren’t the only ones hung like horses.
You know it’s almost Super Bowl Sunday when the chitter and the chatter progresses from on-field issues to off-field satellite stories. For example, when instead of hearing about defensive philosophies, you start hearing about the cost of 30-second commercial spots then you know the big game is about a week away. And once you move from the ridiculous money changing hands for a GoDaddy.com ad and into the dark, secret realm of commercial spoilers then you know kickoff is right around the corner.
Sometimes the Super Bowl and the ads are all about noise.
But, one humorous Pepsi ad will be silent.
It’s in American Sign Language with captions.
The actors are really Pepsi employees who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
It shows a couple of guys in a car driving down a residential street in the evening looking for their friend’s house.
Both of them forgot to bring the address.
So, they think up a quick and funny way to narrow down which house does “not” belong to their friend, who’s also deaf like they are.
The ad is called “Bob’s House” and is expected to run in the pre-show before the game begins.
“Expected to run in the pre-show before the game begins”??? Oh, no, no, no. We happen to know some people who know some people who know some people and we got a hold of a pirated copy. Shhhh, don’t tell anyone where you got it, but let us know if you need some more.
