I hate those commercials. He's great but these commericals talking about his slam wins in '00 and '02 is boring.

we need Closure Pete. Worse than Maria's PowerShot commercial.

Ha, they are, aren't they? I was quite surprised the first time I saw it: I was thinking, "Woah, Zombie Sampras?! :eek:"

Believe it not, there are enough fans who live in the past and can't move on. I guess these ads target them.

I don't get the point of these ads, unless the aim is to annoy me. In that case, it's working. :(

These commercials bite big time. Between these and Hypeapova's camera commecials I can't decide which are worse.

you know, that Wimbledon 2000 commercial doesn't bother me too much. But the commercial where he brags about making 8 US Open finals (but not in a row like Lendl/Tilden) really bugs the crap out of me.

You can at least mute and watch the Sharapova commercial. This one has no redeeming qualities. You made it happen, Pete. Good for you. Now stop.

I think RBS spent their entire advertising budget on Pete and had nothing left over for the commercial itself. At least, I hope that's what happened.

i saw this ad for the first time last night and i must say that i changed the channel in disgust. then again just the sight of the Android tends to have that effect on me so i really can't blame it entirely on the commercial :devil:

the only good commercial i've seen is one with Andre in black and Steffi in white teaching 2 groups of kids to play tennis. awesome and funny. their ads are so classy. :worship:

I know. The ad says almost nothing about the company itself. Stupid.

My commercial says, "If you're as busy as I am, you don't have time to deal with feminine itching and embarrassing odor. That's why I use Vagisil. Vagisil is clinically proven to stop itching and odor on contact, so you can have a fresh, clean feeling that lasts throughout your busy day. *commercial ends with me going to bed with my husband smiling*

*Disclaimer - Do not use Vagisil for more than 2 weeks. If symptoms continue, see your physician. Creamy discharge, and/or burning may by symptoms of a more serious condition, e.g., a yeast infection or Chlamydia. Vagisil is not intended for use as a treatment of STDs or other infections.

Is it a surprise the commercial is so bad? I like Sampras, but he has the single worst commercial from an athlete I've ever seen. That, of course, is the yogurt commercial. He serves, he eats yogurt. That's it. Say what you will about other players, I have yet to see a commercial as lame as that one.

The worst part of the commercials is that they make no sense.....what is the point??? OK He made it happen and so does RBS...but what the hell is up with the eight grand slams one...hes just putting himself down....i feel like im missing some vital piece of information

But come on guys...as bad as these commercials are...they are nowhere as bad as the Roddick lexus and mojo ones.

THe roddick lexus is by far the worst. He just sits there in a car you can tell hes not driving as fake scenery moves by. The an idiot next to him babbles stupid stuff totally unrelated to lexus. Then you see the lexus logo....thats it...thats the entire commericla.

how could this possibly entice anyone to buy a lexus? totally stupid and a waste of money.

Pete's commercials svck wind. At least Andy had a mojo to lose. Pete's just never showed up. He has always done commercials that prove he has no personality.

And BTW I like the Andy driving commercials. His facial expressions are hysterical.

The Lexus commercials are bad, but nothing matches the android blabbering on about his glory days.

I am not a Pistol Pete fan by no means and I love current players both on the men's and women's side, and am looking forward to what Nadal, Gasquet, Sharapova and Young might do in the future... But you represent the kind of soul-less, ADD-riddled moron my generation is comprised of - for whom nothing is sacred or even worthy of respect.

Tradition, history, achievement, greater society - who cares, right? It's all about here and now, it's all about me-me-me... Um, what was I talking about, again?

So fuck you and your ilk. You will be the downfall of mankind.



:D

What's it all about? Commercials always target someone. I guess there are enough people who are happy to watch Pete saying " I did this and that.." Other people like to see Andy's Mojo, or Sharapova's power's shot. Some people are taking a refrigerator break during commercials. Nothing wrong with people's choices.

As for me, I respect history. I had favorite players 10-15 years ago. I remember their achievements. When I need a reminder how great they were, I watch old tapes. Commercials in a mood " I made it happen" don't work for me.

Just to return you a favor - пошел на хуй. :wavey:
