Track star Michael Johnson may face some swift competition this summer in Sydney, but at least he won't be overshadowed by a range, as is the case in a commercial for Maytag Corp.'s new rapid-cook Accellis 2X. The product cooks food twice as fast as a traditional range, and in the :30 from Leo Burnett USA, Chicago, Mr. Johnson arrives at the table just in time for a chicken dinner.
