    Default Badminton Commercial in US

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfwqSBWDW_A

    Personally i just think this is partly the reason people think badminton is an easy sport --;

    the two "asian" guys are actually Howard Bach and Bob Malaythong, the #1 US MD pair.

    despite that, the commercial itself is pretty lame.

    i doubt he designed and directed the commercial. he was probably hired to do it without knowing any details.

    I want the 30 seconds of my life back that I just wasted watching this commercial!

    That's probably the lamest and visually most unprofessional commercial I've ever seen. I mean, just look at the bald fatso diving to the net . What the heck why didn't they just hire 4 professionals instead of just two?

    I feel sorry for Bach having taken part on this.

    -looks like the receiver faulted by moving before the shuttle is served.

    Default Yup, that's the one...

    ...thx for providing the link i was quite surprised also when i saw Urlacher launching himself for that birdie, without helmet, padding...anyways, it's just a pointless humor at badminton..

    yeah, haha, i mean him no insult .... he was prolly unwittingly a part of this.

    still, badminton's image must have taken a hit in the states.

    No wonder ESPN rank badminton lower than baseball.

    I'm sure that commercial will have done a lot of good for badminton, since there are 2 "famous" baseball players in it. Besides, it's better for people to think it's an easy sport instead of a hard sport, if it's easy more people will be tempted to try it out =p
    what we need is some badminton commercials in the UK with famous football stars...

    what the crap was that? LOL

    I was laughing too hard to understand what it was about...

    edit: oh nvm... it was about water come on guys, it was obviously created for amusement. Seeing a football player & baseball player doing their own routine was funny. Oh, and I want to smash like Ortiz ROFL

    I wonder if Bob and Howard had second thoughts about the commercial. Granted they really need the extra money, but the way it was done put badminton in a very bad light and it was very lame.
