Nike released a new LeBron James commercial. This commercial seems like a last minute plea to save LeBron James’ image before the 2010-2011 season tips off today. In a way, it’s weirder than Tiger Woods’s dead father talking to an expressionless Tiger in the middle of a field. Watch the commercial first, then let’s discuss.
LeBron for the love of St. Vincent-St. Mary, stop asking questions! This commercial almost makes me want to dislike you more. Honestly, right when I was starting to forget how much of an ego-driven self centered guy you were, you come out with this commercial to further remind me that you are indeed all about yourself.
Why not just make a minute and a half long commercial saying “Like me! Like me! Like me! Please, like me!” No one is going to, but it’s a better chance than trying to get people to feel sorry for you. Did you really expect that?
“Awww, that LeBron guy is really in tough predicament. Poor guy. We should give him the benefit of the doubt.”
No, instead, it’s, “Good gosh, will LeBron just give it a rest? I’m tired of seeing his face. I’m buying Reebok.”
If you want to win us over, just show a minute and a half of your best highlights. At least that would be fun to watch. Instead, we have LeBron trying to be cute which is like Rosie O’Donnell trying to be sexy.
I would tell you to just suck it up and act your age, but then I remember you’re 25. You just became eligible to rent a car.
If you want to win America back, do us all a favor and just stay quiet and play basketball.
