I'm the guy on the backboard in the cervical collar (figuratively speaking).

There's a fine line between bravery and foolishness.

the dude going over the falls on paddle board... hmm, by my estimation thats about a 75 footer feet first ( wish shoes ) into water. 75 feet, estimations anyone? depending how deep it is there, that doesn't seem that nutter to me. just sayin. cool video no doubt.

Yeah. . . it's a shame it's not on national TV. . . seems, at this rate, it's just preachin' to the choir, as it were.

BEAUTIFUL!

IMHO it CANNOT be considered "the greatest outdoor ad ever" simply because it doesn't have a scantily clad woman in it...



JUST my opinion!!!...

If you can't make the sale in 30 seconds or less, you fail. The rest is just noise.

That was a noisy ad.

Let me repeat the mantra of the Stanford Business School, as explained by an elite alum.

Ads seek to reinforce commitments alrady made to a product to keep customers loyal and NOT to bring in new customers, which is only a trickle. They depend on the customers they have to spread the word and encourage friends, etc., to purchase the line.

Backcountry is an established name with ready customers who are being stroked here. How many different activities were covered in the ad? That is why is so long, would be my surmise.

There was one nekkid man. Good call, sorta weak on the skin, so NOT the greatest.

Is nudism an outdoors sport? I wouldn't call it a sport, but a way of living. Now climbing with no clothes, that's a sport.

Check with Dean Fidelman, Mr. Stone Nude, on this one.
