kawasaki ninja commercial

Am I the only one that has (regrettably) seen the horrendous ninja commercial which sounds like dmx trying to rap something...

I'm all about whatever moves you on a motorcycle...but that commercial is simply dumb.

Dumb. Da dumb dumb.

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

You are not alone... so I am not the only one who heard that shit! Why does a motorcycle have to sound / be "gangsta" ?!?

I happened to look at Kawi's line-up earlier today too! Damn I wish I could afford a ZX-14R

My submission (just fucking now):


"I witnessed this short 32 second commercial featuring some sort of gravely voiced malcontent riding away into the night (amateurishly) vocalizing the typical for today hate everything, challenge everything garbage found in low life rap and grunge music and unrealistic Hollyweird movies and it disgusted me to no end.
I own a ZX10r AND a KLR650! Garbage like that abortion of a production has me wondering what the fu*k is going on with you people?

Am I in for a Damn Brand Change?

Sincerely:

Pissed OFF!"

Dude, my thoughts exactly. Stretch them out, big ass rear wheel, chrome it up. I remember seeing a bunch of stretched out Busas in downtown Minneapolis a while ago. I personally can't stand that shit, but whatever.

Preach! Love it.


Although, I gotta be honest, your mention of grunge really makes me want to go home, put the needle to my Nirvana Bleach vinyl and crank that shit to 11.

When I test rode the ZX-14R, I didn't feel very pimp, unless by "pimp" you mean hanging on for dear life Wicked ride though

You're not kidding man. I'm still kicking an old Sony 5.1 from 2001 with all 5 speakers clustered near the front because the room they're in has a doorway on either side of the stereo system and I don't have convenient access to the death hole called a "crawl space" under my 105 year old living room! Not exactly "surround sound" when all 5 speakers are clustered within a space of about 40".

"Your commercial panders to the lowest common denominator. The audience you will reach represents the worst examples of motor cyclists and casts the rest of us in a poor light. Those ruffians don't likely have the money anyway, it is we responsible types who act in a non thuggish manner who are far more likely to buy, so long as you don't alienate us first."
