Good ad for those it's aimed at, being people who have never played before, and probably play too many video games.

Now I want to go play, and get a paint grenade to work, even though they never do...

This is great. Big thumbs up, Tippmann. Nice when a Big Company in the sport is also so consistently a Good Company, too. Video made me want to pick up a Pro Carbine.

The only thing I would have added would have been to show the group of friends out together afterward...everybody had a good time.

Agreed with the good Dr., but otherwise, surprisingly accessible and fun looking.

Finally you guys in marketing do something useful!

I think this is great, a positive way to promote the sport to new players and something that no one else is really doing (or has ever done, as far as I have seen).

I agree. That commercial was very well done. It will definitely attract new players to the game. The only problem I see is that the normal paintball games are not like what was shown in the commercial. I hope they won't be put off after a normal game.

Tippmann is also going to be working with local fields and stores to add contact info to the end of the commercials. We're still waiting on info on that.

Eh, "normal" McDonald's burgers don't look like the ones in the commercial - they do okay. Besides, would we really want the sport represented by walk-ons standing around the staging area for half an hour wondering where their ref went?

I'm a psych major, so maybe I read to much into things. I'm alright with it though. They made paintball look fun and safe. They gotta do some advertising, after all.
Hes still within reason. Walmart Camos and a cheap pod pack is all he had the others didnt.
