Ok, so I’m a sucker for Olympic commercials. I have always loved the olympics and what they stand for, okay maybe what they should stand for, but I try and watch and I always appreciate those sappy stories of the mom that took her kid at 4 am every morning through the snow to the pool, blah blah blah, you know the stories, they tell a million of them every Olympics. This weekend I enjoyed watching some good Swimming events with some pretty cool come from behind wins for the U.S. I’m a sucker for come-from-behind wins from the underdogs anytime, not that it’s usually the U.S. – I’ll route for any underdog, unless it’s against the U.S. Basketball team, sorry, even if that does mean I have to route for Kobe. Speaking of this years Basketball team, I really enjoyed the great Marvin Gaye rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner used by Nike in this one:
I thought that was alot of fun. The other fun Nike commercial (the one “I got soul, but I’m not a soldier”.) I saw quite a bit of this weekend featured “All These Things That I’ve Done” by the Killers off of their first album “Hot Fuss” (2004) you can check out the commercial HERE.
