The black and white is nice but in some versions makes a few of the people look very strange-in some cases ugly. And I really don't care for Lil' Wayne's VO no matter how "G" it may be. Use of the Jabawokeez is pretty cool though.

G the new logo looks like Georgetown's but with lightning bolts.

I really don't care much for those spots. I had no idea what G was and what the spots were for until someone told me what G is. What a waste of money. Go water.

Fail. Jabawockeez saved the ad for me, what a waste in high paid celebs for a weak ad.

Get back to class. You will never have a chance to work on anything this big. Put your next class project on here so we can see how great you are.

I'm totally put off that product.
Why are so many people involved? What away to piss your money away and dirty your brand.

I've never seen so many credits listed on this site! And for such drivel, too.

Jesus, the creatives who did this need to get fired. Is this what we are to expect from gatorade from here on out?

Guest's picture

- Hey guys, we are spending a lot in sponsorships, can we show that in our new campaign, please?

I watched the whole thing. I watched it more than once. I enjoyed playing "guest the sports star" (I got MJ, Serena... or maybe that was Venus, Jeter, Misty May Trenor and Kerry Walsh, and Ali), but it was the guys at the end, who I assume are a breaking crew, that intrigued me and made the imagery memorable. I agree with Natalie, I can't connect with these spots. If not for Gatorade's familiar bottle, it would be really hard to figure out what the hell was being advertised and why so many celebrity athletes were paid to bring nothing to the table.
