According to Fleishman-Hillard, the Serena in this video participated in a G2 casting call to find Serenas with personal testimonies of how sports and exercise have helped them overcome a challenge or allowed them to reach and accomplish a significant, personal goal.
Serena Cuevas: "I've never been to Wimbledon."
Serena Williams: "I've never been in a car accident and watched my dreams spin out of control."
Serena Cuevas: "I've never been raised in an neighborhood where I had to dodge bullets."
Serena Williams: "I've never been told I might never dance again."
Serena Cuevas: "I've never gone from Compton, to #1 in the world."
Serena Williams: "I've never defied the odds at 120 beats per minute, but I've always tried as hard as I can..... Serena Cuevas: "To be the best the I can."
The commercial ends with an image of the new G2 bottle and this quote: "Low calorie G2:Less Calories, for more athletes."
The Serena/ Serena spot is the second G2 commercial to compare and contrast an everyday American with a star athlete. You may have seen the Kevin the swimmer & Kevin Garnett commercial, which aired two weeks ago. Garnett's quote "I've never received a pink slip", was interpreted as a condescending remark, rather than a sympathetic one. His quote didn't go over to well with some of our readers,who replied with furious comments.
I think the Serena/ Serena ad will clarify the new theme of Gatorade: Everyone is an athlete. Pepsi Co, (NYSE:PEP) ,owns Gatorade.
(13) Thoughts on New G2 Commercial Stars Serena Williams & Serena, the Average Woman
I want to take the average Serena out to dinner. She is gorgeous and I want to get to know her better.
