Firstly for those who know who Gavin Henson is why is he in this advertisment??????

Nadal top 2 in the world!!!
Henry arguably him or Ronaldinho the best in the world!!!!
Gavin henson NOT EVEN THE BEST IN HIS COUNTRY, he is annoying!!!!
He lets the ad down Badly!!!
I know there is a longer version with a basketball player aswell??

What do you guys think of the ad if you have seen it???
Wheres Roger?? I think he is a little to hairy for this ad!!!

You can watch it here: http://www.nike.com/nikeproeurope/gateway/

I don't know that rugby player very well but I don't really follow that sport.
The basketball player is Dirk Nowitzki from Germany.

During the presentation of this campaign, a journalist asked if it wasn't odd that the number two of the tennis world was chosen and not the number one.
A Nike representative answered that they did not have the feeling that they had to make a choice between those two but they just went with Nadal because the ad seemed to fit him more.

Gavin Henson is really annoying. I've noticed that they've cut out the basketball player in some ads, but show him in others.

I get it now!!!

Henson is only big in the uk because he is dating a pop star!!! I am not suprised you haven't heard of him in your country, he is the Rugby equivelent of say C.Rochus in terms of talent, basically he doesn't merit an ad featuring some of the Worlds Superstars!!!

Frédéric Michalak or Wilkinson should be in it instead of this latin lover wannabe but it would have meant two Frenchies or two references to an English thing (after the best striker of the EPL ...) so...here we are. He is shown here since rugby is a big sport i don't know about the other countries...

okay yeah. He must have been involved due to his hot body and his gossip famousness. I think it's the same why they involved C.Ronaldo.

The NikePro shirt fits most with Dirk Nowitski. Seeing Nadal's back muscles makes me cringe because it's a bit creepy... he young to have muscles like that.

The reason that Henson is in the ad is because he is the most marketable Rugby player in the world ATM. Have you guys not seen most rugby players? They are mostly 6'7, 15-20 stone animals that have missing teeth. Henson is the most groomed rugby player out there, and he attracts the interests of women.

Nadal, again, is a more marketable person then Federer. He wears the vests, has the 6-pack, the muscles and everything, whereas Federer has more of a pot belly.

Henry. Well, everyone loves Henry!

Yep the same who's cocky, shaves entirely and gets UV and makes a fool of himself...There are loads of better Welsh players in the 2005 6 Nations Grand Slam winning team.
