On one hand, it’s kinda great that Mengke Bateer, Jimmy King and Garth Joseph all made it in to an NBA commercial in the year 2011. That’s nice, and quite unexpected. Good for those guys.
On the other hand, this is a real commercial? It’s not some kind of parody from a weird Canada-only version of “Saturday Night Live” that’s being hosted by Tom Green? Nope, it’s really real, at least according to Melas, who filmed this clip with his own camera. (Hide your cords, bro.)
I think my good friend Barry Kleinfeld sums it up best when he says, “Who are the ad wizards who came up with this one?” I don’t know, Barry. I just don’t know.
