Want to see how to treat a lady? Of course you do, Urkel. In this new four minute-ish Nike "After Six" commercial, LeBron James — aka Biz LeBron — turns up the sexiness with his new LBJ kicks and the Pussycat Dolls' lead singer, Nicole Scherzinger. Smooth music, dim lights and a sexy lady in sneakers — yes, soft core Nike has arrived, people.
I can't believe people are already calling this the greatest commercial ever. Are you kidding me? Why? Because it's got a Pussycat Doll in it? Wow. Look, don't get me wrong, the ad has some funny lines — I especially like the "genuine leather" quip at the end — but overall the commercial was too long and way too boring. Get Nicole in the pool, and then come see me.
