    Nice commercial but not for Adidas. For some body spray.
    It is a bit weird that one of them has an epee and the other has a saber......
    If you give a man a fire, he is warm for the night.
    If you set a man on fire, he is warm for the rest of his life.

    They're both sabres, actually (freeze the vid and you can see it at times). The reason they put one guy in epee whites with the Adidas stripes and the other guy in a sabre lame and mask was simply to differentiate the characters on screen.

    Am I the only one who watched the video and kept saying, "And, there's another red card."?
    It's all fun and games until someone loses a tip screw.

    Fencers don't just get angry... they get piste!

    It's an Adidas' body spray. This seems like a really pointless distinction.
    I now dangle to the left....my tassle. Get your minds out of the gutter.

    This is at least the 4th time someone has "discovered" this ad and felt the need to start a new thread on it.
