And why do you think that someone made a coke joke? Three guesses Laggard, and the first 2 don't count.

Look at that freakin' outfit. How can it not draw out jokes? He must have been on some sort of recreational drug to even put it on.

Well, lame if you want, but I think he's serious about that part, which is sad. It means he doesn't even have a clue on the nature of drug addiction.

amen bro. but i'm sure he knows...or at least has been told numerous times. he just isn't ready to get serious yet. i mean what's the worst thing that's happened to him so far as a result of his behavior?

Doesn't look like he's enjoying himself very much... I've never taken ecstasy or coke but I kind of figured it would at least made you smile. The ad would be a lot more effective and less embarrassing if he were having fun with it.

It's a f'ing ad people. He got paid to look silly and promote this product. Lots of famous people with no drug use at all have done dumber looking things for a few bucks. Trying to make some connection between this ADVERTISEMENT and drug use is just stupid.

Hell, Armstrong is pushing some five hour energy drink. Maybe he was a speed problem? Maybe he needs the extra cash to fund his EPO habit? What's next Lance? Colon cleansing infomercials?

Good grief. Why are cyclist ads so cheesy?

Contador's new LOOK ad is much cooler.

You missed Schleck x 2. They were frolicking with dolphins as well.

I liked the Northwave ad featuring Stefanao Zanini and another Mapei rider (Bettini?) as The Blues Brothers.

If Boonen is a drug addict, he must be one of the most successful one ever! He continually functions at an elite level in an athletic endeavor. By definition, he does not have a drug problem.

Yeah, no one has shown any evidence that he is a drug addict.
