During the Olympics, we celebrate the world's top athletes, but Vitaminwater France is pushing people to celebrate amateur athletes instead. It has just rolled out a humorous commercial, created by agency Sid Lee, that focuses on everyday athletes.
In the commercial, a real sports commentator hides behind street lamps and bushes and uses a microphone to make live comments on the actions made by various amateur athletes around him. These include a lone basketball player, a swimmer and a pair playing tennis, just to name a few. The athletes featured in the commercial are real people, so their reactions to the comments are authentic. Afterward, Vitaminwater France rewarded the athletes with a free bottle of Vitaminwater. As Popsop puts it, the free drink isn't "a gold medal, but still a very nice award."
