Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

To be honest, we didn't think he had it in him, but in a new Vitamin Water Web ad, Steve Nash proves that Shaq and Charles Barkley weren't the only Phoenix Suns with a sense of humor.

Nash plays himself, "Canadian celebrity Steve Nash," as a gruff-voiced infomercial spokesman that would put the late Billy Mays to shame.

Check it out here.

Vitamin Water is allowing Facebook users to create their own flavor in an application called Flavor Creator and if Nash's SNL-caliber performance isn't enough to make you want to try it, we don't blame you. It's gimmicky and dumb but Nash is hilarious.


Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
