Just curious. Do any of you think that Yundi Li Nike commerical is peculiar? It just strikes me in a weird way as I feel that the advertisers make me feel so . . . typical, like I should be in that audience of the "typical" Chinese (I'm speaking in circles, I know).

no of course not. They don't need those shoes for pedalling...but I think nike choose yundi li cos they see him as an icon, like since classical pianist is wearing nike then you should too, or something like that....

The commercial is interesting and entertaining. I don't necessarily think it will hurt Yundi Li's piano playing, so it shouldn't matter. He'll make money from that commercial, so that's good enough. Maybe it's unorthodox for a classical pianist to make a commercial for a company like Nike, but perhaps it might get some people into classical music.

I haven't seen this commercial yet.
But I don't really think it would get people to like Classical music, unless they Yundi Li is playing a piece in the backround of the commercial (which I doubt happened).

there are also some commercial factors for picking yundi ,since a lot of chinese think he is a japanese idol look-alike(good-looking),i even saw him in a HK fasion magazine. in the adv, he is more a star than a musician.

but personaliy , i think he is getting kind of dressy. and i noticed that he changed his hair to that beethven-style after he won the comp.

What I hate about that is that he is slowly conforming to the "looks" based in HK. Also, do you think maybe gov could be paying him for his ability? I heard something about how the Chinese athletes who do well in the Olympics as witnessed in the Diving Olympics get gov-mandated money on the Chinese radio station this morning. You'd be surprised at what people would do for money.

No, I do not think that it is peculiar at all Wink. He has to promote himself somehow in today's blatlantly ignorant world, and being a virtuoso pianist is not enough to pay the mortgage Neutral. I really do not care whether he does such things or not, however; as long as his musicality does not suffer in the long run, which hopefully will not.
Best Wishes,

I'm not talking about technique or so, about starting to do this commercials, and appearing in fashion magazines...

Man, I hate Maksim Confused

The saddest thing is Maksim Mrvica did have great potential, but he wasted it Sad. Hopefully, the same will not happen to Yundi Li.
