Hey, I'd take their money.

I don't think Alex is exactly rich, famous maybe, rich, no . . .

I'm torn-- the commercial is great -- excellent footage of a classic route, but having a hard time reconciling this will the reality that is Citibank. Morally ambiguous, like much of life I guess. Citibank and it's brethren are evil, and while I hate that he's promoting them, I'm glad that if they are spending money on advertising, that it is ending up with Honnold..

Climb more, use the Visa less.

I have no problem WHAT SO EVER with Honnold making a fat paycheck off of Citibank .

Good for you Alex , take the money and climb as much as you can . The 99% of climbers on this forum who work 40 hours a week are slightly jealous ...

That's a funny commercial.

The best trad climber on the planet hanging off a rope laughing while posing in the poser position.

Mtucker sold out to the US goverment.....we all get to pay for him. If anyone doesn't like Citibank, or want a Citi card, it's easy: don't bank there. Don't get the Citicard with no blank out dates etc etc. Go elsewhere, there's lots of banks and Credit Unions you can chose from. However, we have no choice about paying for Mtucker, we must pay his salary: as with all US obligations that we are taxed for it's mandatory you pay taxes or you go to jail. I'll go with Honnold (a climber) and the voluntary choice to avoid Citi if I wish, as the clear winner on this one. Great commercial too.

Why bitch on this? Nothing to say on the trillions of our MANDATORY OR YOU GO TO JAIL tax dollars wasted on US adventurism and needless wars abroad that won't pay a nickle in return. We borrowed most of that scratch and it still needs to be paid back. I'd think bitching on this commercial is overlooking this huge and much more significant issue.

Thanks Bush.

I saw that yesterday, I didn't notice Honnold, I was wondering who's the chick?

Katie Brown as it turns out.

What's the rock?

Edit - Ancient art, yeah, thanks.

Old guy alert: anyone else remember the Chevy commercial on top of Castleton where they got a Chevy up on top of that pinnacle? "See the world today, in your Chevrolet" la la la la la !

More power to Alex.

But...
Hey Couchumper WTF?

Explain this please. Or are you emulating Cletus the fetus eater?

Maybe I watched the wrong commercial but it seemed to me the gal with Alex was featured almost more than he was. Alex didn't promote anything by talking. Promo talked about Citi points which I myself used to go to Belgium to visit my son and his family and cost me round trip @ $90.00.

Which of us have not used a card or bought from a company that does not tow the line of philosophy we do? Betcha' none of us are virgin.

Cheers Alex and company.

She's clearly better looking that him Lynne, they're trying to sell product after all:-) LOL

Philo, Please don't take this the wrong way, but you're really too much of a dickhead (needlessly so) most of the time to everyone else. As life's already too short, I'm not going to waste my psychic energy on discourse answering any of your questions or conversing with you. Take care! Heal up!

Right Couchmaster, but Alex is a cutey. I've got a couple nieces that could rock his boat. Think tho, Mr. Honnold has a major in his life. Least that's what was on the microwaves this summer. :D Cheers

That was Alex? I only caught a glimpse of the "boyfriend". Almost entirely about the girl. No big deal as far as I'm concerned.

It would be funny if they became an item due to getting to know each other that day. I don't know Alex, but saw him at the Facelift when Timmy O'Neill did that Talk Show sketch with him in it, and ever since I have been rooting for him to find a nice girl. Not to settle down, of course, but everyone deserves love.

As for c/cards - those who use the types with bonus points to make purchases, and then pay in full each month have my respect. I know someone who pretty much uses her card for everything(to the point of absurdness, such as going to dinner with a group and trying to finagle using her card to pay/collect cash form the rest, just for the points she'll get), but like Lynn, this person gains from the use. That she pays in full each month means she is actually getting more back than she put in. Better return than any bank will give on a savings account....
