Under Armour is rolling out their "I WILL" campaign featuring Bryce Harper. The ad, one that begins with a quote from Harper himself, depicts the young star of the Washington Nationals doing exactly what you'd expect in an Under Armour commercial - training and working out.
Slow motion, weights and music that's designed to pump you up. Not only is that a description of the Bryce Harper Under Armour commercial you see above, but it also describes nearly every athletic apparel commercial we've seen in recent memory. Aside from some fancy neon lighting, Harper's commercial is what we've grown accustomed to. It's the stereotypical sports advertisement.
It's unfortunate as Harper's personality - both on and off the field - could result in a memorable, unique commercial if given the opportunity. Instead, it's just more of the same.

A lot will be expected of Bryce Harper as he enters his second full season with the Washington Nationals. To help prepare for the upcoming year, Harper reportedly put on about 20 pounds over the winter. He belted 22 home runs in 139 games last season, but a rigorous workout regimen could have that number on the rise in 2013. “I take a lot of pride in my workouts,” the 20-year...
Another day, another Under Armour commercial featuring Bryce Harper as part of the #IWill campaign: "I don't have 'gears.' I play one way. That's all I've ever known."

Under Armour is featuring Washington Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper in their new ad campaign, and that's a smart decision considering Harper's budding level of superstardom. The one minute commercial is done very well, featuring Harper working out and preparing for the baseball season on a diamond in his hometown of Las Vegas. Then, you get to the 26-second mark of...
One game into Spring Training, and it's already time to begin compiling the 2013 Bryce Harper highlight reel. Harper registered a hit and made a juggling circus catch of a Kirk Nieuwenhuis liner (video above via MLB.com) in the Nats 5-3 loss to the Mets on Saturday. "Bring on the dancing bears" said one of the Mets announcers on SNY.
Meanwhile, a "geeked up"...
Bryce Harper is going to be the Nationals' every day left fielder in 2013 after spending nearly all of 2012 in center. Of course, after the team traded for Denard Span, Harper was shifted to left to accomodate the new acquisition. Anyway, in today's Spring Training opener against the Mets, Harper got a rough introduction to his new full-time position. In the bottom of the...
Washington Nationals sophomore Bryce Harper is probably going to be one of the best players of this generation and possibly the best player with a faux hawk in Major League Baseball history. So it’s only natural that we’ll soon be saturated with endless ads proclaiming how amazing the 20-year old phenom is, and the campaign will begin with his new Under Armour commercial.Harper...

Incredible O.J. Mayo Defense Turns Into Offense Video Of The Day
It was a glorious day for baseball fans everywhere. After four cold, depressing, baseball-less months, there were live games on TV again.
Though the Washington Nationals lost their first game of Spring Training to the New York Mets, 5-3, it allowed us to see what kind of shape each player (and his facial hair) was in coming out of the offseason.
Only four regular season,...
