Last week, CBS started airing TV spots like this one during the NCAA men’s basketball tournament to promote Strikeforce: Nashville. While it’s good that they’re getting some visibility among sports fans, the ads themselves leave a little to be desired. Let’s break it down:
— Does the ad look like it was filmed in one location in less than a half-hour? Check.
— Are cheesy sound effects added when the fighters are hitting the heavy bag? Indeed.
— Does the swooping edit of Dan Henderson entering the frame at 0:12 make you laugh? LOL, yes.
— Is Dan’s delivery of "I’m comin’ for that belt" strangely passionless? Unfortunately so.
— Are the other two title fights on the card mentioned anywhere? Nah, son.
— Does it end with a Chad Kroeger-esque singer going "yeaaaaaah"? Man, does it ever.Read More DIGG THIS
