Vitamin Water: "Horse Race"

by JJ Hawkins, posted Feb 3rd 2008 9:15PM
There's something ridiculously funny about seeing a 7'1" athlete attempting to perform an act typically performed my much shorter members of society and that's exactly what Shaquille O'Neal did in this amusing commercial.

Watching Shaq on the back of a thoroughbred was particularly hilarious because in reality you'd probably have to have a Clydesdale or maybe a Centaur to be able to hold up his 325 pound body (in mid-gallop no less).

It was also pretty entertaining watching Shaq place his gargantuan hand across the chest of the smaller jockey mimicking his moves in the low post when he's on the verge of throwing down a nasty dunk. Riveting stuff.As for the Vitamin water part...since this is "Vitamin Water", would it have made more sense to have somebody that's known for being weaker - and having them perform extraordinary feats thanks to the beverage? I know Powerade covered that type of commercial a few years back, but it's such a good concept I wouldn't have minded seeing it again here.

Anyhow, it was a good commercial and it was even nicer seeing the Diesel still raking in the endorsements several years out of his prime. Shaq-fu forever!
