    this should be a new poll, but on friday afternoon i am too lazy:
    which is more irritating, the lacoste ad vs. "i've got the world on a string, sittin' on a rainbow..."

    Don Henley is turning over in his, uh, bed. What a horrible rendition of "Victim of Love." Listen closely. Or don't!

    Natasha Thomas, singer from Denmark. Apparently she was only 17 when the commercial was filmed. I thought it was Jewel the very first glance I had of it. Doesn't hurt for the ladies to have Clement to look at, so the commercial is far less annoying than both of the AOL commercials and the Mercedes Benz commercial.

    The AOL commercials are worse. Everyone in there look like fuc*ing retards -- check out this girl's face when she says 'all of them'.

    I just can't stand it when Madison Av. try to humanize corporate culture in America.

    I agree, the MB, Lacostel, and AoHell commercials are very annoying and repetitive. I usually mute it all between so I dont get irritated.

    Yeah, I'm still recovering from the pain of the "I've got the world on a string" commercials. At least the Lacoste one is less nasal, and it puzzles me to no end: what exactly is the storyline in that commercial? Is she pissed because Clement was at tennis practice too long? Does she live in a recording studio? Why are they then suddenly at the airport? And what does Lacoste have to do with anything? (I really thought it was a cell phone ad the first few times.)

    As long as we're on such topics, did anyone else notice the Halliburton logo on the side of the main court at Houston this year?

    I think the storyline is that Clement was playing at Roland Garros. The girl is a recording artist in New York, and they haven't seen each other for a while. So, Clement takes a cab to the airport, the girl flies in, and after a phone call to make sure he's coming, the girl and Clement finally see each other. Of course, both are wearing Lacoste gear.

    Yes, I noticed the damn Halliburton sign. Doesn't surprise me. By far the most annoying commercial of the Masters Cup coverage is the US Clay Courts commercial featuring the dulcet tones (*cough*) of Jim *Mattress Mac* McIngvale. Ick.

    Yes, tried it, Lacoste has stand-alone stores. Meant Master-series gear.

    Why do you guys call the line Lacoste....its called IZOD :D . Its just a generational difference....we used to call them Izod's back in the 80's.

    I really felt old the other day. I was in an elevator and a group of young girls were giggling and talking, when one of them says :
    "Can you believe my Mom calls them Izod"....that hurt.

    Izod had a distribution deal with Lacoste back then -- in the US only. Not the same company, never was.
