I came to Thinking

Today i was sitting around watching tv. And i saw a T-mobile commerical. And i came to think. Hmm who would be a better spokes person Cathrine Zeta-Jones or JAN. I know hes German and all But sub-titles are cool.

I would say Jan personally. That Ladys getting annoying.
Whats your opinion

Hate to say it, but it would be rather pointless for T-mobile to use him as a spokesperson when the majority of their audience would just consider him one of the generic no-name spokespeople on so many other commercials. Far more people know Catherine Zeta Jones than Jan Ullrich.

I like Jan but you've got to really, really, I mean really be into pro cycling to prefer seeing him over Ms. Jones.

She's hot.

He would be a perfect spokesman for them. Their whole pitch is on using your minutes whenever YOU want to. I can just see it. . .

"Hi, I am Jan Ullrich, winner of the 1997 Tour de France. Do you get tired of people telling you when you have to do things? I do to, it's always like (in whiny voice) "Jan, lose weight now. Jan, train more now." Well, I've made a career out of waiting to lose weight and ride those valuable base miles whenever I want to, and T-Mobile can help you do the same with your cellular minutes."

And maybe Jan could apply some of those "free" minutes to reduce his TdF times

I would LOVE to see Jan pitching a T-Mobile commercial. As tall and big as he is, they could do some kind of physical comedy. Somehow, he just strikes me as someone who would be cool with doing some kind of comical commercial.

Besides that, I think Jan is so hot... damn, that boy makes me think such thoughts sometimes that seriously I could not put on these forums.

My god... don't get me started! I've been ranting to my girlfriends about Jan... basically comparing him to a soft serve ice cream cone, and lemmie tell you, I don't want kids, but for him... I'd go for it! Well, I would still need a nanny, a babysitter, and a housekeeper, but I'd go for it for sure! Wow, he's a stone cold fox, that one.

I don't think that Ullrich's steroidal voice would fit well in a commercial.
