    My Pitch to Nike

    I'm really banking on sending this pitch into Nike and making the big bucks by having them turn this into an ad on tv.

    Who are you?
    in one word...?
    in one sentence...?
    in one paragraph...?
    in one essay...?
    NO!
    in one life whats make you, you...?

    Just Do It!

    Let me know what you think, and don't be shy, feel free to tell me I'm going to rise to stardom with this.

    Ok, now I want to see someone else come up with an ad pitch to a company.

    I want to see a PSA on music pirating....

    And say

    "Download songs ileagally, We will catch you"...

    *At this point it looks all serious.

    "Then go after all of your parents for recording cassette tapes off of radio and records..."

    *Now you realize how sarcastic it is

    [edit]
    You do realize that someone could just take your idea to nike... Since you put it on internet and all

    That's the risk I'm willing to take.

    Well, in that case...

    I think it would be pretty good in a comercial. I smell Super Bowl air-time.

    It sounds very much like a nike comercial.

    It's all b/c that new Mia Hamm commerical with Gatorade got me in the mode of thinking of pitch ads. Then when I called my friend something (insert explicited word) jokingly he said I'm not that. Then I asked him who he was. That's when I struck gold coming up with that phrase. Oh yes, the not-so-brilliant process in the way my brain works.

    [edit]

    Here are some little phrases I've come up with that would be used during sports games or espn highlights.

    Torri Hunter says to the ball you can't leave, I glove you

    Eli Manning, the new G-Unit in town

    Coach Coughlin might catch a cold being down his player's throats all game long

    is that Kevin Bacon, from the movie Hollowman, out on the field bc the ball just went right through his hands

    John Lynch better run bc the village is chasing him after that stupid penalty

    the ref's calls rings of barry sanders' initials

    (an espn highlight showing barry bonds getting his 4th ball to break his own walks record) - now barry bond's has officially changed his name to base on balls

    It looks like Marshall kept his rabbit foot in the looker room today b/c that's just all skill

    I don't know what Martz is doing throwing the ball every down. there is a plan and it's called the Marshall plan: run, run, run

    Some of them aren't too bad I don't think, and might be funny if you know a lot about sports.

    I think you should try to do something else with your life...... cuz frankly those all suck. You're trying waaaay to hard and starting to sound like that gimp that failed miserably as a commentator because he made obscure references. No one wants to hear that crap.

    It's not my life; it was one half hour of boredom and talking with my friend online. If you ever watched SportsCenter, in particular Dream Job on ESPN, you would see that they aren't too bad, nothing great but still not bad. Now if your precious ears don't want to "hear" them, then it's as easy as not reading them.

    Ok, enough wasting time. Good bye.

    Some ideas are golden and will make you rich beyond your dreams.
    Some ideas will get your legs broken.

    Nike, look good for either.
