    More Bodybuilders are needed in commercials


    Have any of you seen the "Bank One" commercial? It's a commercial where Bank One is advertising their "Maximum" strength checking account. Bank One uses normal looking people that discusses the advantages of opening a checking account with them. The commercial says something about "powerful banking soultions begin with Maximum Strength."



    The interesting part is at the end of the commercial. The person does a double bicep shot which demonstrates the strength of the bank. My question is why Bank One has not used any bodybuilders for these commercials? This would be PERFECT because the double bicep pose being done by a bodybuilder. What better way to demonstrate strength?

    Well if you use someone like Mark Dugdale or a up and coming NPC like when Richard Jones won the USA that would be perfect. I'm not saying to get someone like Dorian, Ronnie, Cutler but using a guy who's around 5'7" and 212lbs is a good idea.

    What do you guys think?

    Or because they do not want to asociate themselves with a subculture that is riddled with drug use. (not that that's a bad thing.) Did anyone see the comercial for XM Radio with Dave Pulumbo in it? I thought it was the coolest thing til I heard he got busted for distributing GH.

    It doesn't do any good for public perception of bodybuilders.

    Actually, I do not believe it was fake but rather I believe it was "generic".
