I won't even touch on him learning Chinese in 3 weeks, but I couldn't help but notice he has the same 'vagina' looking mouth that Jared Fogle and the Quiznos guy has.  It just hauntingly draws you to it.

I am beginning to think the swimmer is a bit over-exposed. Maybe he won't be such a hot topic until 2012.
Closing logos! Now that's something I can watch on TV.

I have nothing against Michael Phelps but if he's promoting learning Chinese from their program, why doesn't he say at least 1 Chinese word in the whole commercial?  I would think that he would have at least said hello or a simple phrase in the language...just to prove he's learning something  Confused

I agree.  The only part in the whole commercial where you see him using the product and supposedly speaking Chinese, you can't hear him because of the stupid voice-over.  Suspicious!!

Nee How Maa!

He could've said. Actually I think he looked like a total doofus with that headset attached to his laptop.

I got sick of this guy during the Olympics. He seems to be a complete tool. And I hate the over-exposure.
