Gomez Commercial

I posted a few of these on the Devils forum last year. I think he has 3 or so new ones and this one is probably the funniest. I might have to troubleshoot it so if you don't see the video right away give me a second.

im sorry but thats a terrible commercial. i mean, i get trying to market to the rangers audience or whatever, but what the hell is that?

thats the best they can do?!

i was in advertising for a while, and id be ashamed to even present that as an ad to a client.


This, is a great commercial taking advantage of a name player, a big market, and showcasing a product/service very well....

Yeah but this is for a local cable company. And they are basically just using his name you can't even get the nhl network or center ice to watch it. The best we get is VS and HDNEt.

still, its quite poor.

just my personal opinion, i just hate ads that make me roll my eyes. i think commercials have been taken to a new level since the superbowl started showcasing the great ads.

im actually a person that really appreciates good advertising, so to me, this is a real letdown.

I'm not arguing that most of his commercials are pretty corny. This was just kind of way out there and you kind of have to do a double take and ask yourself if you actually just saw that.

didnt mean to jump all over you bro.

ive been talking to some idiot yankee fans (yes im a yankee fan) who blame tonights loss on a-rod (yes im an arod supporter).

its really frustrated me, and made me an angry person right now. trying to talk to spoiled yankee fans is akin to rectal surgery.

Nah you weren't. I understand your point but you have to realize this is a small time cable company and they probably didn't put too much into the commercial other than just to get Scott on tv.

i dunno, like i said, i was in advertising and marketing for a few years, and one thing that strikes me is, if youre going to shell out all the cash to get a major sports player (semi major maybe?) to endorse you or your products, (and believe me, its never cheap) then you should spend a lot more on making sure the ad is great.

if i were scotty id be annoyed with my agent for making me do such a retarded commercial. why would you want yourself associated with poor production quality like that?

I think they sponsor alot of stuff he does. That's probably why or how they got him.

Ouch..well I don't think they will sell one phone with that horrible attempt of a commercial.

Yeah it's hard to say as AT&T is coming back plus GCI's coverage isn't the greatest. If you didn't see the rest here they are.

I've always like the McDonalds one from the 80's with Larry Bird and Michael Jorden playing Horse.

best. video. ever. Well, not quite, but it's pretty freakin funny, and I think it's exactly the sort of commercial that could work to attract people to the game (certainly much better than the stupid warrior commericals from a couple years ago).

I just hope that the NHL pays to place these adds at sometime other than during a hockey game. Have you noticed that? Why would the league place the ad at a time where it's going to be seen by people who are ALREADY WATCHING THE GAME?!? Gotta admit, I've never really understood that one. A great time to play these would be during other sporting events - the baseball playoffs, football games, etc...

How corny. The best thing about that commecial is the toasted/roasted marshmellows, which I havent had in like 20 years. Damn they looked good.

Guys, there is a big difference between a commercial for a local cable company, on a budget of a few thousand dollars, and a commercial for one of the world's biggest telecom companies, or a sports league with international reach. It's like someone showed you a bicycle and you say, "that's pretty crappy, I like this Maybach." Judge something on it's own merits, don't compare it to something that was produced with completely different constraints.

It takes a huge amount of money to make even a 30-second spot work: not just filming, but writing and editing take up a lot of man-hours, which adds up to a lot of cost.

The Gomez commercial had a decent idea, and just the sort of production you'd expect, considering it's undoubtedly limited budget (and it wasn't aimed at a Rangers audience, it was aimed at Alaskans).

unless gomez worked for free, i highly highly HIGHLY doubt the cost was just a few thousand dollars.

also, good writing doesnt have to be super expensive.

heck, you could go to a local college, and find a creative writing class, and as a contest ask them to submit ideas for a commercial. the winner gets $500. i bet youd have a TON more ideas that are better than this, which cost less to make.

That is the best NHL video Ive ever seen, so fricken funny and would really attract more people to the game imo. These are all the stars of our game, shown to be like normal people, and could really appeal to new fans....
