    There was so much going on in that commercial, I couldn't tell if the athletes were real or actors, and I completely missed Robby. Hopefully, I'll see it again and can keep an eye out for him. Thanks for the heads up.

    Yea saw that one too.
    Its advertising like the espn phone or something like that.
    All it has is him sitting on a bench dribbling a ball on his racket, waiting for a bus being pulled by some guy

    I wonder how much he got paid to just sit there for 5 seconds.

    Yeah, I saw Ginepri in that commercial and at first I thought it must be an ad for Under Armour since there were several other athletes in the ad, but it turned out to be an ad for, what? ESPN Mobile and/or Best Buy? What the heck? :confused:

    I think it's a cell phone that is either s special ESPN model or that is pre-set to get ESPN video content. Or both
    I saw the comercial, and I think they are all athletes, but I missed Ginepre in it.

    he was sitting down on a bench waiting for the bus, bouncing a tennis ball with his racket. The strongest man person, pull the bus up to the bus stop and he got up.... presumably to get into the bus.

    The main character, some average joe looking at his mobile was sitting next to him on the bench.

    the ad was for ESPN mobile. I think some kind of sports content push to your cellular. I'm guessing here but media companies are trying to get people to use cell phone like a tv once they have broadband wireless.

    I assume folks in Europe and Asia have this already? Any one here?

    Someone already mentioned Baron Davis, who was dribbling a basket ball all over the place. I saw a golfer, some racers Auto & foot racing. I saw a couple pitchers and some other baseball players.
    I saw the comercial once then fastforwarded so I didn't focus on who they were.
    Just a hodge podge of atheletes doing their thing.

    I noticed, he was sitting there with that glum look on his face and I was wondering why they picked him.

    He didn't look glum to me, he looked like he was concentrating on bouncing the ball. Or that could be how his face looks all the time?

    Just saw the 30 second version this morning.. Ginepre made the short list. He's standing in a glass bus stop booth bouncing a ball with his racquet, but not up and down, more like Mac used to do getting ready to serve.
    The funny part of this section was just to the right, out side the booth there are 4 soccer players standing, protecting their privates like they are getting ready for a penalty kick. They are wearing powder blue. What team is this? And who are the players? Are they FIFA, or are they MLS?
