speaking of rear-entry boots

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
and other antique gear, have you seen the new Nextel ad? Dude falls into a crevasse, and is greeted by a bunch of dessicated folk who have fallen in throughout the last 30 years or so. Whoever produced the ad has been skiing for a long time. Might not mean too much to non-skiers, but it's a subtle hoot. Who can ID the various equipment and clothes?

"It's not a sandwich."

I love that ad!

Notice the guy eating a bowl of snow!

Yeah, the period clothing is perfect. Either someone knows thier skiing history or did some good research.

Maybe this ad was the one positive to come out of the Olympics?

I love that commercial! Night of the Living Dead in retro ski gear. The commercials during the Olympics knocked the snot out of the Super Bowl commercials. There was another good one where a streaker steals some guy's Budweiser just as a large bear is about to make a meal out of him.

Aside from the skiing one, my other favorite is the cell phone commercial where some CEO type is boasting about his new cell phone plan to one of his underlings:

CEO: : "...It's just my little way of stickin' it to the man."
Underling: : "But...you...are - The man."
CEO: : "I know."
Underling: : "So,...you're stickin' it...to yourself??"
CEO: (refusing to admit, but realizing that he's probably just made an ass of himself) replies, : "...maybe..."

That one kills me, and the acting is great - which isn't something that usually strikes me when I'm watching a commercial.

That commercial was a hoot. It had me laughing out loud. Can't ID the gear, though. Couldn't see it well enough from the sofa : .

This one cracks me up as well.

Son: But dad, its summer.
Dad: What are you? A weatherman?
:

Have you checked out the tips on dads skis? Looks like someone shoved them into a wood chipper and pulled them back out.

Anyone know what resort this was filmed at?
