Seagal Mt. Dew Commercial

Have you seen the new Mt. Dew commercial with Seagal sensei? I think it is quite funny and probably the best acting he's done in a long time. Not to mention probably some of the best Aikido he's ever done on film.

Victims, aren't we all.

Re: Seagal Mt. Dew Commercial

I have enjoyed it as well. I think he looks trimmer in it too.

is there anywhere on the net that we can see this?

A real man does not think of victory or defeat. He plunges recklessly towards an irrational death. By doing this, you will awaken from your dreams.

Oh and Lloyd, that was a strange comment.

That was great! I don't usually agree with Sensei Seagal's "aikido in the movies" but I must admit I really like how he represented himself in this video. My respect for the man has just gone up a notch.

Not at all. That was some great ki extension he had going there.

That is awesome! I have been looking all over for that so I could download it. I knew all I had to do was post it and someone would find it for me. Thank you so much!

Aleksey - It was wasn't it.

I suppose you could argue about if he was really doing aikido or not. I just like to start stuff.

I was half joking only because his last few films he doesn't seem to do a lot of aikido. It looks more Jujitsu or kung fu-ish.

Don't really care. Seagal Sensei was and is my inspiration for staring aikido. I am very happy to see him in the commercial.

Huzzah!

Did make me chuckle a bit, but that hair.....

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

Warning:

I have a sneaking suspicion that the gator-company has something to do with the 'Accept' button on the page. That may result in spyware being installed on your computer. At the least it seems your IP and perhaps other personal info is being logged to the provider of the service.

I for one do not approve of that kind of sneaky behaviour.

Don't worry about the accept button. I just checked my cookies, and it's not for gator or a tracking program, it's for Method Studios who made the video.

PS - cookies are not Spyware or IP tracking devices. Aikiweb uses cookies to show you which forums have new posts, and which posts are new, and remembers your login name, etc... That information is stored on your computer. When you computer accesses a site that uses cookies, the site "asks" if there is a cookie for it on your computer. If so, your computer returns the information to the site, and all your preferences are "remembered." Cookies aren't bad, folks.

They are trying to have a legal way to stop people from redistributing their creations. you can't get to the file without agreeing not to redistribute the files.

it has nothing to do with spy wear like edward stated.

i don't see anything sneaky about it.
