NIKE......Doomer commercial : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I was watching the WB network last night and saw a hillarious commercial from Nike. The basic jist was that a jogger got up on what was inferred to be New Years day and proceeded to jog his daily route. While jogging he passed by EVERYTHING, from crazy ATM's and streetlights to tanks to riot police to molitov(sp) cocktails to helicopters and even a stray missle. At the end he passes another jogger, they say hi, then the "Just DO It" logo appears. Fitting, those joggers will run through anything.

So far this commercial's got my vote for the funniest, I was LOL.

You're right, it is the best by far. A good laugh albeit at the expense of the unweary population.

I saw the same commercial (2x) on the WB network last night. Man, those Pollys must be pulling their hair out. I was ROFLMAO. What a great ad! Even if nothing happens (hear this God?), this will be a "keeper" for future generations--it was GREAT.

I was reading the thread below on GIs' tendencies toward thinking far in the future and in strange directions, and then I came here. Your post twigged something for me. Whenever I'm asked why I started running (past 10 yrs), I always say, truthfully, so that if I ever have to get somewhere on foot in an emergency, I'll be fit and used to travelling long distances. Does that count as a premonition?

Silver ion,

I admire runners, if not just for the fact that they have endurance I wish I had. I'm going to be tucked away in a remote place for the rollover--just in case, because I cannot run more than a few hundred yards without blowing a lung and bursting my side. So hopefully the only extremes I'll have to contend with will be the weather, it's cold in MN. Best of luck!

Does anyone know that commercial where the girl gets up in the morning, presumably to go jogging, and her pillow starts talking to her and says "I'm sooo comfy" and she looks at her bedspread and it says "I'm comfy too!" and then one says, "You don't need to go running, you had a salad last night" and the bedspread answers "Yeah! A salad!" and then she gets up and GOES RUNNING YEEEEEEAH jogging Could you let me know what the commercial's called, or somewhere I can download it..... anything, thanks so much :)
