This is Derrick Rose’s newest commercial for his newest adidas shoes. The shoes look great. The idea is great. The dunk at the end is very, very great. But I am a little confused.
If Derrick Rose is a bull and these Lakers and Celtics bullfighters are trying to matador him up, then isn’t the cheering at the end for those guys? Nobody roots for the bull in a bullfight, except for maybe other bulls if they are watching from their pen. Or if they are cheering for Rose, then maybe that’s a little premature since the toreadors aren’t going to stop until they’ve killed the bull, which seems like a pretty gruesome ending to a shoe commercial.
I guess there is a small chance I’m thinking about this too literally. As long as Salvador Dali makes a beautiful surrealist painting about this, I’ll be happy.
