If there was ever a way to sell or promote a product, it's with a sexy woman—and if you combine that with sports, you'll have hundreds of thousands of men's undivided attention.
I own a pair of Shape-ups and I don't even know why. And what am I supposed to do with this sports bra? All I know is, I needed it. Along with this Bud Light Lime.
I'm helpless, and you will be too, after watching the following 30 commercials.
I need a Pepsi...
This commercial caused quite a stir, mostly because some people just couldn't handle the bare back of a woman, but for those of us who could, there was this "scandalous" commercial between Terrell Owens and Nicollette Sheridan of Desperate Housewives.
I was more offended by having to ever see T.O. in a sexual scenario. And don't even get me started on his acting.
Brandi Chastain will forever be remembered for taking her shirt off after her game-winning goal that gave the U.S. the Women's World Cup title.
Unfortunately, it left some people thinking that she only knew how to celebrate victory one way...
Maria Sharapova feels pretty, as she should, and the rest of the world is singing what they're usually thinking when she walks by.
And then, well, just watch the ending.
Jillian Michaels is known as "America's Toughest Trainer," but when she's not kicking America's fat ass into shape, she's looking hot in Go Daddy commercials.
The Vancouver Whitecaps officially became the 17th MLS team in 2009. And to get their fans excited about the team, they released this promo featuring a woman getting the team's uniform painted onto her body.
Some were outraged by the promo—go figure—but I made it through it feeling just fine about the world. Hopefully you do, too.
If someone put a gun to a man's head—don't worry, this is going to get better—and asked him to sum up what makes him happy in 30 seconds or less, he'd say to watch this commercial.
Football, beer, barbecued food and women in scantily clad clothing—hell yes!
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to read War and Peace and solve our current economic dilemma.
ESPN says poker is good enough to be on their network, and if it's okay for the "Mother Ship," it's good enough for me.
Who doesn't love a game of strip poker? Everything was going well, too, until the Shyamalan-esque ending.
Sometimes there doesn't need to be a twist.
Given their uniform, it's hard for any volleyball player not to be sexy. And if there was any place I'd like to see them play, other than the sand, it would be the snow—as we see Misty May and Kerri Walsh do here.
There was a time when people died playing their sports, and that was in the days of the Roman Colosseum, with the swords and the shields and all that good stuff.
What the hell happened, America?
Check out this video featuring Britney Spears (when she was still hot and only partially crazy) and Enrique Inglesias (pre-mole removal)—he changed after that, man.
Also, Beyonce and Pink are there.
If I were Anna Kournikova's agent, I would get the wrong idea, too, if she told me she was playing "fantasy sports."
Maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea to create the Lingerie Tennis League.
SportsNation recently debated whether or not this commercial was offensive, and luckily both Michelle Beadle and Colin Cowherd agreed it wasn't—I love you, Michelle—but Georges Laraque, who is now a retired NHL player, really took a beating for it.
It's mostly his fault. He should never have apologized for being in a harmless commercial. That'll teach him to play street hockey with beautiful women. What an idiot.
Ana Ivanovic and Daniella Hantuchova are as beautiful as they are crazy in this Sony Ericcson commercial, leaping from building to building in a death-defying game of tennis.
I'd like to believe they did all their own stunts.
I don't think Anna Kournikova knows how to do anything without looking sexy. I can throw her the remote and tell her to change the channel and it would blow my mind.
I've been trying to figure that remote out for months.
Here she is in a black and white—that means it's artsy!—K-Swiss commercial talking about her "personal style" of shoes.
There's nothing hotter than a confident woman who knows what she wants and is willing to work hard to get it. But it's a plus when she's beautiful, too.
Check out Allyson Felix (track star), Julia Mancuso (American skier) and Sofia Boutella (Algerian dancer) in this Nike promo.
I don't know about you, but I've always considered dancers to be athletes. I personally don't know too many people who wouldn't. I mean, there's a reason they're that fit and talented.
It takes athleticism.
But that's the question asked in this commercial. Also, the chick's hot.
Watch a day in the life of Yu-Na Kim, a Korean figure skater, as she wakes up, brushes her teeth, weighs herself, makes breakfast, rocks out—look, she gets a lot done.
And she looks good doing all of it.
Women boxers are hot, as long as their faces aren't bloody and swollen, and luckily this boxer's face is not.
But she is cute and sweaty. Watch her beat the hell out of a punching bag.
I didn't know a woman could move like this in a teeny bikini without something breaking loose, but I stand happily corrected.
Wait, no, I'm very unhappy!
It must be the power of Gipper, which is a soda—I think. It could also be an incredibly powerful skinny man.
This is what happens when they make things ambiguous.
When Arianny Celeste, UFC Octagon woman extraordinaire, isn't holding up ring cards, she's rolling around naked in hundreds of limes, which is—as far as I know—America's greatest pastime.
I know you're looking at the subhead and thinking, "Ronaldinho!? Ed, no!"
But don't worry. Though he's the star of the commercial, his ugly mug takes a back seat to the scores of bikini babes running around him.
And there's Trident gum in there somewhere.
I don't know if this commercial is about the shoes or the television. All I know is this: Those girls can sure juggle a soccer ball in their underwear.
And that's really all that matters.
Everything about the steroids era was a bit of a joke, with all of the lies (despite the obvious physical growth of a number of MLB players) making it easy to mock.
Here we have Danica Patrick and the Go Daddy girls—I still don't know exactly what that website is about—denying that they've "enhanced" themselves in any way.
Do you ever wish women would exchange shirts in tennis after a match? You ever wish they weren't wearing anything at all under those shirts?
Then this is the commercial for you.
In all seriousness, the Lingerie Football League is for real. Those women don't take it easy on each other. And if you don't believe me, just check out this promo.
It's as close as sexy and violent can come without being sadistic.
Sketchers has their "Shape-ups," Reebok has their "EasyTone"—and they both have incredibly hot commercials to promote them.
I personally enjoy this one over Sketchers' Kim Kardashian promo because, as far as I'm concerned, multiple toned butts are better than one.
I don't know if I'd agree with Serena Williams being "The World's Sexiest Tennis Player," as the commercial claims—that's reserved for Anna Kournikova and Maria Sharapova—but she seems to be doing her best to earn that title.
This commercial was never supposed to see the light of day, allegedly being too racy for television. Frankly, I've seen worse on Baywatch, but then again, I'm not paid to be a censor.
Adriana Lima, one of this website's favorite models, is in lingerie playing with a football, and I have no idea why and don't really care.
It had something to do with...something...umm...hamburgers? No. I give up.
Breakups are never easy, especially when you're leaving a relationship for a shoe. Hold up, let me watch it again.
Yeah, Kim Kardashian left him for a shoe.
She and the shoes broke up 15 minutes later.
I don't know what's hotter, this video or the sequel—oh yes, it has a sequel.
The model is Candice Swanepoel, and I'm completely sold on whatever it is she's selling. I don't care if it's the spandex clothes or the hand wrap or whatever.
I'll find a way to make it work.
