Slow clap.

I am totally okay with this commercial, although the shorter versions (about 30 seconds) are better because they get right to the gag, without as many "ooh, culture clash!" anvils falling on your head. First, it features a celebrity poking good-natured fun at himself; and secondly, In Da Club translates rather nicely to an orchestral arrangement.

Thank you, Vitamin Water. I probably won't drink your product, but I do enjoy this ad.

Until they mentioned Vitamin Water, I was thinking this was going to be one of those Holiday Inn Express commercials.

Yeah, took a while to get around to mentioning or showing the product. I assume that issue is solved in the :30 spots.

But, are a lot of symphonies really commentated on?

I've seen this commercial a bunch of times. But after his performance at the BET Awards last week, I'm just annoyed by his shilling. Vitamin Water is just glorified sugar water.
