commercial shown here  In it there was a
clipof me (picture here:
running with the USA flag at the USA v. Jamaica game.  I've searched
for a video of this supposed shorter/edited version of the original

There is no answer at this time.

hey, I looked around a bit and could not find you in any versions of
that commercial.. ( I found a dufferent cut in Spanish) BUT... all may
not be lost.. below is a link to an article called "U2's Cup runneth
over". In it they talk about the series of commericals we are talking
about.. ( with U2 narrating). I am thinking that maybe you are going
to be in this one:

"Director Christian Loubek filmed the commercials in Scotland and
South Africa and is shooting an additional spot featuring the U.S.
national team in North Carolina this month. That spot, titled "USA,"
will be voiced by U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jr., and may include the
song "Pride (In the Name of Love).""

As of right now I cannot find this commercial in any of the usual
haunts ( you tube etc..) So maybe it is new enough that it hasn't hit
the web...Your friends may have seen you in that commercial and
confused it with the other one...

These commercials were done by the firm of "Wieden + Kennedy" so that
may be a helpful search term for you. There are five in all, each
narrated by the members of U2... here is the list of all four..

"Anthem" narrated by Bono
"Ivory Coast" narrated by Bono
"Sick Days" narrated by The Edge
"Tartan Army" narrated by Adam Clayton
"USA" narrated by Larry Mullen jr..

hope you "find yourself".... I'll keep an eye out..
