The 'Reach for the Gold - Pole Vault' Hostess Ad is Hysterical

The hilarious 'Reach for the Gold - Pole Vault' Hostess commercial makes one thing absolutely clear -- it is not an Olympic sponsor. The hilarious reverse commercial parodies the ongoing Olympic commercials from actual sponsors who pump up their athletes, teams or nations in their various ads.

Showing a pole vaulter miserably failing in a comical sense, the hysterical commercial is a break away from the pack of Olympic commercials anyone who's been watching the games has been bombarded with. This genius clip is a nice, comedic relief from the intensity of the Summer Olympic Games.

The London 2012 Games have had some major ups and downs and have been a fascinating event to watch. The various sporting events thus far have featured some amazing athletes and have had some majorly exciting moments. Stats for Comical Anti-Games Commercials Trending: Older & Mild
