  1. I thought the commercial was not very effective. particularly the low quality of the video and the way it abruptly ends, with a You-Tube logo..

    I mean what are they trying to advertise? Nike+ or You Tube?

    Very poor. I can’t see that helping the sales very much.

    I like the idea, and what they’re getting at.

  2. No Irony: Have you not seen the commercial on TV? There is no YouTube logo at the end. The YouTube logo is on display here because the video is made available via a YouTube player.

    I have to disagree, I think the ad is very striking and attention getting.

  3. No Irony is right. The You Tube element is very distracting. I wish Nike just stuck to the Sport Kit without the You Tube stuff in the commercial. A lot of TV viewers will be confused. Otherwise, great ad.
