Too forced.

The whole likening of Nascar racing to boxing is totally uncalled-for and asinine.
Fans of either sport won't appreciate the "forced" association, no doubt.
I love watching boxing on tv. I used to box for years myself. And I find this campaign rather offensive...
This is nothing but a cheap "wordplay", never delving deep into the spectator psyche. Y&R/Chicago did a WONDERFUL Nascar campaign a few years ago. One ad in particular stands out from the rest. It's the one with a guy (an ordinary Nascar fan) proudly holding a tire that came off of a vehicle in a crash during the race. The line said "Suddenly, a souvenir ball seems kind of lame." That, to me, speaks to the heart and soul of the target mentality towards the sport.
This campaign's superficiality, when compared to Y&R's work, does "seem kind of lame"...

No I didn't. You are right.

But the ad is really bad.

Nope. Try again.

Seriously, would you advertise the final four of NCAA basketball by calling it a '4-person Texas Hold 'em?' Don't compare sports with other sports.
