    Anyone else see this one? I've been bombarded with it over the last 6 hours.

    It's a virtually perfect recreation of the first courtyard fight scene with two women fighting over a can of Mountain Dew ala "Crouching Tiger"

    Hokey I believe is the term I was looking for.

    It's superbowl 'ad season'. Most weird/good ads come out around this time. Too bad there's no more adcritic.com, I would like to check that one out soon.

    I like how at the end they put the little disclaimer stating they are not affiliated with any movie.[​IMG] Instead they just ride its coat tails.

    I thought this was a fairly old commercial. I've seen it quite a few times. Nothing really wrong with it...it was fairly well done.

    Yeah, this commercial has been on for quite some time. I thought it was a fairly well done parody. Definitely better than the lame "spaceship" Mountain Dew commercial that they were showing for a while in movie theaters.

    This commercial has been out since Crouching Tiger was released on DVD. I find it about as silly looking as the movie, even though there is "supposedly" no relation between the two.

    Think about it, this commerical has been out for over a year! That's got to be some sort of record in the advertising world (short attention spanners).
