What Spanish Speakers are watching: Funny commercials


If you tune in to the Spanish tv stations, chances are you’ve seen this commercial. For those who have not, glad to share it with you guys. It’s a Degree ad featuring Andrés Guardado from team Mex/ left midfielder with Deportivo La Coruña, Spanish League.

(For more info on Andrés: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andr%C3%A9s_Guardadohttp://www.goal.com/en/teams/spain/127/deportivo

The commercial’s storyline is simple, yet very silly & entertaining : Some crazy fans break into Andrés’s home and snatch his deodorant.  Andrés swears by his Degree & can’t do without it, so… The chase begins! Throughout the commercial the whole city unites for one goal: Successfully  play keep away with Andrés’s deodorant xD Why? Because the products slogan is : “Players should sweat, fans shouldn’t”


ORIGINAL COMMERCIAL

BEHIND THE SCENES :

Lol at Andrés driving the forklift. His driving it has nothing to do with the ad, but I bet he asked the director if he could and of course, how could they refuse? =)

ANDRES’S STUNT DOUBLE

Ha! The stunt guy has a twin, so Andres says, “so now there’s 3 Andrés Guardados” Funny.

El Tri’s World Cup uniforms unveiled


Speech from Mexico’s coach Javier Aguirre:

I would just like to mention that the moment that I decided to take on the charge of leading the National team I asked for 11 warriors on the field. This is exactly what I am witnessing  & have witness before my eyes during our previous, and current  matches, training, &  activities. Warriors with  hot blood running through their veins, with unbreakable bones, and fiery legs.

Everyone of us has such an eagle warrior within us, that warrior who leans on the strengths of : concentration, determination, and the desire to win everyday. Today I urge more than 11o million Mexican warriors to join in the daily battle. May we all who are present here today be ready & disposed to fight on. Let us not think twice & chase after the “ball” that motivates us everyday.  I invite you to fight on as the true warriors we are in: your jobs, your homes, with your people.  Let us not loose for an instant the purpose for which we wake. Win, win, win absolutely in all we endeavor!

It moves me to know that behind these young men stands a country, our Mexico!  A country with an unmitigated &  unyielding courage & hunger, with a heart that will beat so loudly that we will hear it everywhere. Let us believe in ourselves, let us believe that we are a country that was born with everything necessary to triumph. Let us believe & understand that we are warriors and as such we will return. Thank you very much & good night.

vamos chavos echemoles galleta !

azteca, de sangre guerrera!!!
