I'm glad they used that bluff that overlooks Camp Pendleton. It really is a great view onto a nice venue.

Awesome to see UA bringing some attention onto paintball as a sport.

posted in the video already but it is cool they made a commercial and it posting it on youtube is one thing but actually showing it on tv is a different story and hopefully it makes it to tv.

Little to no chance. Google 'under armour paintball' first result is a thread from 2007 lol. Nothing on underarmour.com in regards to paintball. Video is posted from PbNation's youtube account, not UA's. To say this is an Under Armour commercial is a stretch...

Agreed-

The ambiguous thread and video title make it seem like UA produced the commercial and that it featured paintball- when really it is a paintball video promoting the fact that ANSGear.com now offers UA product.

Clearly the production value isn't of UA standards and I have my doubts that this project was approved under a corporate marketing procedure on behalf of UA- it's just PbNation using UA in an ad for ANSGear.

Going to have to question why PbNation would put up their credibility like this to bait Under Armour. Pretty sure you can't obscure advertising like that to the point that an association with the name brand was the producer of the marketing content-

Production quality was great, I don't care if UA produced it or not. Very cool footage, way better than basketball/football/baseball............ Commercials.

This. Also, some of the most boring paintball footage ever. Doesnt look like paintball takes much athleticism based on this. Literally 100x better than what's given above:


but really, this is the best paintball commercial of all time.

The footage was good, the ad not so much. I highly doubt this was paid for by underarmour. This ad was obviously geared 100% towards paintball players only "I train like an athlete".. really? i could write a better script in my sleep...

I agree the link bait is below the PBN standards

John you are the man! I love seeing videos like this and hearing about the growth of our sport. Hearing that under armor and Nike and other major companies starting to sponsor teams or at least give them free gear is HUGE and a big step in the right direction....I will share this and hopefully I will see you at Gateway this Sunday.

Don't get me wrong, I think this new UA commercial/promo is dope AF and only shines light on this amazing sport we all play, but .... this Cam Newton UA commercial is def one of my favorites. Not to mention that's araabmuzik showing off his skills on the drum pad.. And of course all of the Cam haters are going to say it's garbage, but whatev.

The hate is real... Instead of talking **** about the production and whether or not UA backed the commercial, try sharing this and spreading the word that paintball is now beginning to get a little bit of exposure.

But if UA isn't actually behind this then it's not the exposure/support you assume it is - it's more inbreeding and appropriating the UA brand to move shoes (possibly without UAs permission).

Hahahah so, " I love paintball and its great, but **** this commercial its not even legit" Do people even hear themselves talk anymore? Know what a contradiction is? Or are we so use to acting how we want and still getting what we want? Me thinks that changed in the last few years. How bout we be the slightest bit humble like ole Greenspan himself and appreciate that someone would even make a commercial for the sport.

Yeah, I don't really understand why there have even been any negative comments. The production quality was terrific and this is a great eye opener for loyal customers of the UA brand and a big step forward for the sport.
