    The Glide was used in a 30 second commercial ad as a basketball star in this week's celebrity apprentice episode. Just wanted to mention I thought it was cool to see him wearing a HOUSTON jersey. It was also especially nice to see that he was on the winning team (the losing team had Scottie Pippen in their commercial ad, haha). Did anybody else catch tonight's episode?

    I thought the girls won that competition hands down. This year's celebrity apprentice has been really good.

    And as much as I HATE Pippen he did well in his commercial, but at least he lost, so that's all that matters.

    Maybe now that Michael quit they can bring back some Rod Blagojevich. It's just so funny watching him politicking to everyone he sees on the street.

    I loved it when the Chef asked, "who is he and what team did he play for?, sorry I'm a Aussie."
    I thought Michael Johnson was gonna say Portland, but he said "Houston!". Then Clyde came out sporting his Rockets gear. That made my day.

    I did enjoy him beating Pippen, even though Pippens act was pretty good. But yes typical Clyde. Funny! :grin:

    Clyde was great, a truley class act, he seemed like he had a great time doing it. Both commercials were pretty cheesy though, very low production value. I coudn't see either one of them actually being used, they looked like a local lawyer or mattress store may have produced them.

    It was very satisfying to hear Michael say Houston (and not Portland)!

    I also enjoyed seeing Clyde beat Pippen. Chalk up another 'W' for the Rockets over the Bulls. :grin:

    Those commercials are produced in less than 48 hours. They are really just to advertise the product on an episode of celebrity apprentice but could possibly become a commercial if the ideas are good.

    Sweet. I've always liked the concept of the apprentice, and really enjoyed the 1st season of the apprentice way back when. I look forward to watching again

    Clyde was so goofy, but great. Was cool to see him on the show.

    Okay I hate Pippen and all, but I just watched these and I thought the "Funky Godfather" bit was hilarious.

    Clyde was pretty funny but I didn't like that one was much.

    I caught the show...and when I saw pippen was on there I spoke out loud to the TV and warned the women to be careful...scotty might quit on them. Wasnt ten minutes later he was talking about how he had to catch a plane and if they didnt get finished filiming in less than four hours he was going to leave. I guess they got it finished...but I still thought it was funny that he tried to quit on them before they even got started. Sounded familiar to me...

    Yeah Michael Johnson is from Dallas and went to Baylor so he's a Texas boy. I thought he'd say Portland like most of the country though. Drexler's best years were in Portland where he was basically like Dwayne Wade to Jordan's Kobe. He was an MVP candidate every year when they were good. In Houston he was like Pippen to Hakeem not the main guy.

    It was hilarious when Goldberg said "I love Clyde to death but I am getting annoyed of hearing his voice." I was thinking, join the club.
