Nike Commercial = Reality T.V.

Have you seen Adrian Peterson’s new Nike Alter Ego commercial?  If not here it is:

Now I wasn’t a big fan of it because I thought the music was boring, the style was trying to be too artsy-fartsy, and Adrian looks like he developed some sort of new disease that would sideline him for the season.

However, once Sunday rolled around and realized that the ad was actually reality television… it has grown on me a bit. Compare the video of the commercial with Adrian’s performance on Sunday:

Sidney Rice said it best.

“I told him after the game, I was like, ‘You relived your Nike commercial,’” Rice said. “That’s exactly what I told him because he was just out there doing some amazing stuff. It’s not only our job to catch the ball but it’s also our job to block defenders and give him an opportunity to make big plays for this team. It was an amazing run. After he passed me on the first level and I got back down field right behind him and I saw him grab the guy by the head and just throw him out of bounds. I’m turning back on the block to push the guy out of the way and I knew it was over then because he was 3 yards in front of everybody and it’s going to be real hard to catch him if he’s 1-yard ahead.”

    There is a better clip of the same Nike commercial but with much greater quality. Link to that instead
