We know what Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash has been up to during the NBA lockout: making a commercial that rivals the hilarity seen in spots starring Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.

While making fun of himself, Nash is pimping Vitaminwater.  And it’s funny.  The spot asks viewers to submit a video of themselves to prove they are “Nash enough” to co-star in a commercial with him.

I don’t think it’s enough to push the NBA to end its lockout, or enough to earn Nash a gig as host of Saturday Night Live, but it’s enough to make you chuckle.

And – it’s an instant image-maker.  Are you Nash enough?  There are some other instant image-makers.  What are your favorites?
