If I were Andy, I'm not sure if I'd be happy with AE "Mojo" commercial...

I just saw this commercial during CSI. Andy goes to sleep while some other actor playing his "mojo" steals his cowboy hat and goes partying in NYC. Next day, Andy can't find his mojo to practice on the court.

At first, I thought Andy was promoting some sleep medication, lol. Anyway, the guy playing his "mojo" comes off as gay hustler even though he has all these girls screaming and running with him in the streets (or maybe because of them).

This feeling is componded when I click to the American Express site where I'm asked "Have you seen Andy's mojo?" and his figure shows up in a white cowboy hat, in a stance like John Travolta from Saturday Night Fever.

What do you think of the ad? Here's the link (http://www.andysmojo.com/scale.html)

That ad is ultra corny. I am surprised Andy agreed to it. He probably has a contract with AE to do commercials without his input in it. The airline commerical was a lot better.

PS: His mojo does look ***.

I thought it was a boring comercial, but the Mojo didn't strike me as gay. I just thought that they should have featured Andy more instead of giving most of the action to that actor. If they bother to hire Andy they should feature Andy.

American Express commercials during the US Open make my life worth living. Love 'em.

:yeah: I also think that Andy wasn't that much in the comercial ... actually it is just like 10 seconds of Andy ...

I like those LEXUS commercials. There are two different women in different ones. Actually the woman have bigger parts in the commercials but they are very funny and although Andy doesn't get to say much he does his line with the right subtleness to make it fit perfectly and that's funny too.

Those seem better than the Mojo commerical where Andy is acting kind of dead. The funniest part in that commerical was when he asked Fish if you ever have a day when nothing works and Fish says no. (Too bad Federer couldn't have been in there in place of Fish.....because then the line would made sense.)

I wish Andy would imploy that roar when/if he faces Nadal. Nadal has the disconcerting capri pants and boxer shuffle......so Andy should try the ra-ra-ra-ra roarrrrr as his grunt sound. It would only be fair.

trophy falling on his head last year was a riot. He has a good sense of humor.

this mojo thing is really bad

here is the previous one http://www.visit4info.com/details.cfm?adid=23230 (this is the ending presuming he wins)
there is another one with the last few seconds changed --his spare seat can be given to a young woman-- because someone else wins and she says "she can't sit at the back becaus some jerk has a big trophy"

It was cool. I like commercials with Andy. They aren't the kind of ones that make you buy something/apply for something but they're just fun to watch.

stupid ad....makes him look so incompetent if u ask me cause mojo here implies andy's lacking practice for the open or his ferocity to his game, which suggests he's not a "big" player like he used to be. andy should be mad

If it doesn't make you want to buy something, it's a bad ad.

They should have had Andy play both roles that would have given him the chance to cut up and act like a show off as the Mojo.

That would have been funny if they let Andy play both parts, but I liked the commercial nonetheless. I mean, I thought it was funny. Not the best ever commercial, but it's not like its one of those "Ive got the world on a string" commercials that will be painful to listen to lmao

By the way, the website version and the TV version of the ad are different. American Express is even more prominently displayed in the TV version. If you couldn't tell just from the first part that it was an American Express ad, then I pity your cerebral capabilities. Seriously.

And I'm not even a big Andy fan, nor did I particularly enjoy the commercial.
