  1. I seriously think she's trying waay to hard to fill the Anna K. void. Either that, or her PR people are marketing her like that in a vain attempt to make women's tennis more marketable...it's just tired tired tired.
  2. I totally know this is trivial, but that commercial is inescapeable.

    Haven't seen it. I think Maria is prettier than Anna K and she's a far better tennis player!

  4. Yes, I admit she is leagues ahead of Anna in ability, and she just may be more attractive, but the whole commercial is just waay to obvious and gratuitous...I almost feel embarassed for her, she comes off really flakey.

    If you do see it Brad, you'll know what I mean.
  5. hot, hotter than anna, IMO.
  6. Can't she be hot and trying too hard?
  7. No. you either are or aren't. :smug: at least in my world of polls. ;)

    havent seen it, but Maria seems a lot less fake than Anna, I find she seems more down to earth. Anna seems to have a bit of a prima donna attitiude which I find seriously unattractive.

    I'll probably go with Leinad :D

    edit - I need to see it really though I guess. Therefore I added nothing to this thread... :bag:

    She reminded me of Paris Hilton (in a bad way!) at the end of the add, so yeah, she's HOT but she is trying too hard.

    Paris Hilton? Scrap my last comment, I don't want to see it :D
  12. And I did?

    Mon Rominee, is your sig from Pretty Fly? If so, hats off!

    Perfect example of me adding nothing to a thread again, sorry.

    I'm not hot, and I don't try! By that, surely she can be hot and over-trying? QED! :D
  13. Naw, sorry, it's from that Def Leppard classic "Rock of Ages"

    edit: ah yes, Offspring did sample that for Pretty Fly... my bad...so yes. :D

    I don't know if I find it funny or pathetic that The Offspring felt they needed to use that catchy sample so badly they paid $100,000 to Def Leppard for the rights to use it.

    Nah, you're not blacklisted, YET! :D

    Hard to keep your mind on classic Def Leppard when you have those constantly flushing urinals!
