The new Nike Kobe Bryant commercial sucks.

How embarrassing for you, Wieden + Kennedy. An unapologetic, classless, serial philanderer/probable rapist + a pointless bunch of celebs + a stupid yellow triangle diagram + a bad script = worthy of Nike basketball advertising? What the fuck.

Dear Copy Ranter,

Take a look at the video posted here. It's part of Meritus Hotel's newly launched campaign.

There's a part where the text in the video says "The Perfect Shade" and that is timed simultaneously with a visual that showcases the model's skin colour.

Hmmmm. Racist much?
You be the judge

Cheers! Keep up the good work, by the way.

Is this *supposed* to make us think of Tom Cruise in Magnolia?

I usually agree with you, but I think (hope) this is more a try at ironic self-mockery than anything else, especially with the Tony Robbins cameo. I actually almost sort of not really laughed.

That said, F Kobe.

Awesome, Copyranter hating on people who have what he doesn't have. Jealously, tsk tsk.

Maybe if you spent your time actually working instead of judging others.

I didn't hate that one. But I love Kanye and Aziz. I do love the people accusing you of not liking it due to jealousy. You think the copyranter gets jealous? Maybe, but not over that. Dummies.

On a side note: What does the copyranter get jealous over? We know what he hates. But what does he like just enough to want it, and therefore feel a pang of regret when someone else has it, and he does not? Like what I feel when I am not further up in the line for my Sea Salt Fish Tacos?

I don't have the same problems with this ad that you do, copyranter, but I do have two issues: 1) Were there no successful women to feature and/or speak? and 2) If I were Jay Z, I'd be consulting my legal team. The "Kobe System" hand gesture looks a lot like HOVA/Rockafella hand gesture.
