Michael Phelps has another important swimming event this week in Indianapolis.
But it seems everyone wants to talk about the Baltimore Olympian's new shampoo commerical for Head & Shoulders.
His Subway spots didn't generate this much buzz. But he had clothes on in those.
Okay, he's got some clothes on in the commericial. But in at least half of it, it's shot so that he looks, well, naked. He's in the shower, sudsing up in slow motion.
“So, what's Michael selling here? Sex? Swimwear? Shampoo?” wrote Instinct Magazine. “Put your toned sportsman in a shower with your product and we can guarantee we won't fast forward through the commercial!”
Phelps reportedly has a two-year, seven-figure deal with the company.
Reporters had a chance to see the commercials at a press conference a few weeks ago and they’re supposed to be rolling out now on TV, as we inch closer to this summer’s Olympics. Head & Shoulders is also supposed to be contributing to the Michael Phelps Foundation.
