Steve Nash and 50 Cent get you to make your own Vitaminwater

Posted on Tue Sep 22 2009

Add one part gruff-voiced spokesman and two parts too-soon Billy Mays parody, blend until frothy, and you've got this spoof infomercial for Vitaminwater. If you have trouble taking vitamins the old-fashioned way, "Canadian celebrity Steve Nash" and his gravely voice want you to know there's hope. This mildly amusing spot is for the drink's "flavorcreator" Facebook application, which you can use to design your own variety of Vitaminwater. To promote the app, the company goes so far as to give a cameo to Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, who designed his own flavor a while back. Throughout his 20 seconds on camera, he delivers countless gems such as, "I mean, I'm so paid, man." The funniest part of this ad is undoubtedly the actors' facial expressions. If Vitaminwater could bottle them, it could finally make a good flavor without the help of its customers.
