Chuck Norris featured in Czech T-Mobile ads
posted by Ken N. / Nov 06, 2010, 4:33 PM
The star of Missing in Action and Walker, Texas Ranger has been the subject of humorous lore for years now. Our favorite saying is that Chuck Norris' tears can cure cancer, but he'll never cry. We think, by comparison, this mobile marketing thing should be a snap.
T-Mobile USA has been airing a negative ad campaign, targeting AT&T and the iPhone. While we appreciate what they're trying to do, we wonder why they didn't adapt a Chuck Norris campaign for more markets. If Chuck Norris told you to buy a myTouch 4G, wouldn't you listen?

Please add translate of the ads: 1)Man: "Ou yeah...in TV everyone can be sharp." And voice in background says: "Sharper then Chuck Norris. New satelite TV from T-Mobile." 2) Man: "Are you there?" "Yes." "You'll gaze." And voice in background says: "Chuck Norris will not give anybody anything. T-Mobile give you netbook when you buy two services." 3) This is based on lingual misunderstanding. Women says: "Please can you make a photo of us? It's his first skating." In czech "skating" means "bruslí" and when you say it, it sounds like Bruce Lee. Thats because Chuck said what he said. And voice in background said the same as before. I hope I described it well and with minimum grammar mistakes. :)

to skymitch89: Our official languague is Czech and not everybody speaks English, so there is no reason to shoot an English commercial. We all understand Czech. to Rick: I've read an article about this and it says he got around 400,000 dolars
