I’m pretty impressed with K-Swiss and how they’ve kept this ad campaign going. Most companies seem to stray from controversial people like Powers, but K-Swiss embraced him, and let Danny McBride and Jody Hill run with it no matter how controversial it happens to be. Then again, I did just watch, and made you watch a 5 minute commercial, so I guess they won a little there. I doubt I’ll buy a pair of K-Swiss shoes anytime soon, but they got me considering them at the moment the next time I get some running shoes. It’s tough to pick out a favorite part, but three stood out. The fact he was dressed like Steve Jobs is classic, watching Patrick Willis tackle a cheetah, and KP interviewing Bruce Lee. Have a great weekend everyone!

This is supposedly the last season of the show, so hopefully they give us at least 10 episodes before Kenny falls into obscurity…
I never understood why HBO put Eastbound and Down on during October and November when they could easily have it on during the actual baseball season. Whatever the case I was looking for stuff about the third season, and found out that it could be the last installment of our irrational hero Kenny Powers. I hope it’s not, but it got me looking up some youtube clips this morning, and I stumbled across some K-Swiss commercials that were pretty good. Not sure why they didn’t push these on the sports channels like they did with the Terry Crews commercials, but here’s him signing his contract and one of his better K-Swiss commercials with Patrick Willis.
