Remember the bad LG G5 commercial that we trashed on pretty heavily last week for being bad and a bunch of you acted like you were offended? Remember the creepy guy in the video that was way too excited to be watching donkey-sheep clips? Remember how some of you suggested it was Jason Statham? IT IS. It’s Jason f*cking Statham.
LG announced the partnership or sponsorship or whatever it is, this evening, saying that the first spot “will portray Jason Statham experiencing the G5 in exciting and fun ways” and that every “character in the commercial is portrayed by Mr. Statham, an amusing mise-en-scene consistent with the G5’s Life’s Good when you Play More tagline.”
Oh and we have Statham quotes!
“I think the concept that LG is putting forward with the G5 and its modular design is going to catch on with consumers.” Jason Statham knows what the consumers want! Damn.
