Your First Look At Nike's "Train Like LT" Commercial Starring Kimbo Slice And Random Appliances

Saturday, August 16, 2008

Okay, Nike has done it again and whoever came up with this idea is a freaking genius. The new campaign is called "Train Like LT" and features LaDanian Tomlinson heading over to Kimbo Slice's house to train the "old school way". Via Yardbarker....



First of all, that car that LT rolls up in is badass. Second, when Kimbo swung the freezer door open, I just lost it. Outside of that "I've got soul, but I'm not a soldier" ad, I can't think of one Nike has put out there that hasn't been awesome. Great work again, Swooshers.

That was actually a bit lame. Was it supposed to funny? I am sure that lDt was trying to be funny, but I love when people my age talk about the "Old School". Classy stuff!

Could AA perhaps decide between having the "via" be part of the link or not, and not keep saying "Via Via Yardbarker" as though the name of the site was "Via Yardbarker"?

Hahaha.....point taken. As long as you make the editing comments funny, I'm all for them.

Is that the same back yard where Kimbo knocked that guy's eye out of its socket?

"This is only my little sisters car" is one of the best work out taunts I have ever heard. :-)
