Lebron's new Nike commercial (aka vommercial) is terrible

Have you seen LeBron's new Nike commercial (aka vommercial)?  Here's the link, if you happen to be living without a TV and only use a computer:

According to youtube, this commercial is only 1 minute and 32 seconds, but it's so schizo with a flashback to The Decision, St. Vincent-St. Mary, and a re-enactment of the large mural smoothly coming down in Cleveland.  Anyone who was following the saga knows that there was nothing smooth about LeBron's "decision" to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers.  Yes, he was free to go.  I'm not going to argue that.  I get it.

In the commercial we see LeBron at a podium speaking to an empty room.  Yes, LeBron, in my opinion you did ruin your legacy.  Yes, you're not a role model.  You're a misguided basketball player who made poor choices and should really let your game speak for itself. 

The acting and soulful poem crap demonstrate the narcissism since that is the same crap (aka shtick) that he used in his Sprite commercials.  Oh, and nobody cares about the tattoo on his back.  Don Johnson...  Seriously?!?!

In the commercial, LeBron asks "What should I do?"  Here's an answer: Pull that stupid, extended re-mix of a vommercial that makes me long for the days of the MVPupppets. 



  1. Spot on Sarah. I immediately put up a Facebook comment about it upon seeing it, echoeing pretty much everything you said right there. Why does he think everything is about him? Put on a damn TV show to announce who your fucking over? Why? And now this stupid damn commercial...what a joke. If he wants to fight through this shitstorm...he should just go out, score points, win games, and build a new fan base. I used to really like the I could care less. And the one's who's love he had earned...he's lost it.

  2. nice to see i'm not alone, since i'm often referred to as a bitter cleveland cavaliers fan! i saw the stupid vommmercial again today during/around the time of pti and it looks like nike chopped the time in half. i have news for you nike ~ the vommercial still sucks! anything short of a championship will be a tremendous disappointment, and i hope the bandwagon jumpers in miami are ready to be disappointed... i can already here the excuses about lack of playing time together and injuries. sorry, but that's life in the nba. SHUT UP AND PLAY!
