Seriously though, that was by far the best commercial that I saw.

It's Jason Wheeler from Russian Legion.

these guys need to look at youtube, find a couple of aspiring guys/gals who make the best paintball vids, and hire them to make 3-4 spots each and ROTATE THEM. seeing the same commercial every few minutes is just irritating. seeing the same bad commercial every few minutes is like a descent into madness.

also, the empire army one is blech.

to me that one at least looks like a real commercial. some time and effort went into it, unlike the spire commercials which look like bad voice overs played over a few powerpoint slides.

Spire is probably the worst, although most of them are pretty brutal. Only one I half enjoy is Raza

Coming from a marketing/design/creative background:

G.I. Imperial commercial - I don't know what that crap is in the background.... but its NOT music. Find whoever made the creative decision to use that track, and fire them.

Virtue - Come on now. I like and use the spire but the commercial is awful. It's like they walked around 2 hours before the webcast started, and recorded a few players giving random endorsements with an iPhone. Then they put the sound over a magazine ad. The endorsements are clumsy at best with people stumbling over their words, stuttering, and making terrible jokes. Seriously... what the hell is with the retarded "get shot with a shotgun on the field but your spire will still work" line? Did they actually think it was good and or funny? Fire that person too.

You could have given away one of your $200 loaders to someone here on the Nation and gotten a better ad.

The JT ad - for its target market, I think its pretty good. It seems like a commercial you'd see on Saturday morning during cartoons when kids will see it, similar to Nerf commercials, etc. Although no one thought about the audience because I don't think anyone watching the webcast is going to buy one of those. It makes more sense to me to be playing something about the new Impulse considering you've got a couple running on XSV and people interested in watching the webcast are more likely to buy a high-end.

The RAZA commercial - It's slightly obnoxious but 110% RAZA and that humor/attitude is why we love the company and Todd. Well... that and they make good stuff.



Overall the commercials are getting old, after one day. Think about what it will be like on Sunday.... The production of the webcast is phenomenal and I personally think its better than we should have ever expected, ESPECIALLY for free. You'd think who ever made the decisions on the webcast to feel so professional would have put the same consideration into requirements for commercials from these big companies.

PBA, don't be scared to demand quality from the companies who sponsor the webcast. The advertisers are taking away from all the detail work you've put together. Everything you're doing from the new dorito-side camera, the onscreen graphics, down to the professional back drop/desk and matching shirts for the announcers, is all being brought down a peg by terrible and incessantly played commercials (and the chick that continues to eat/scream at the mic during interviews.)

/rant

I'll now go back to my day job, and watching the webcast, for free, thanks to PBA and their fine sponsors

The virtue with the RL player. "If you go out on the field and get shot by a 12 gauge shotgun you will go down but your spire will keep working."




Anyone else experience the empire army one with 187 has some problems with the audio quality? Every time it comes on the audio would fuzz like if you turned up a small speaker too loud.

The one that's getting me... the Spire commercial that sounds like it's in Russian. Really making me want some vodka.

I like the NCPA one best personally. That fat kid with his pack resting between his beer gut and his ***** tits makes me laugh every time it comes on.

Dye and HK ones are the most professional (expected though, they've both got pretty high powered media dept's). The rest look really rushed.

When the two masks appeared in the e-vent commercial, I thought we were going to see them get it on. The crash/explosion was a let down...
