Get Your Basketball On

Posted by Double M




For the last few days, I've been seeing this picture as an ad in some of my feeds in Google Reader featuring Charlie Murphy in a ridiculous pose with a basketball.


Well, last night, I saw an actual commercial for the ad and I have embedded it below.


Based on that ad, I had no clue what was really being sold, so I went to the website, GetYourBasketballOn.com and learned nothing. There are some really funny things on the website including this image:


If oyu haven't figured it out from the commercial, that image should give it away as a Nike marketing ploy. The whois for the domain indicates this as well.

It doesn't really matter to me - this seems like a funny advertising idea and I like Charlie Murphy, so I'm interested to see where this goes.
