Blake Griffin is awesome.

Not just because he’s added a respectable midrange game and very good handles to his already high-flying dunks (he’s come a long way since entering league, often his critics haven’t watched him play a lot in recent years). It’s because he has figured out how to do great dry comedy and market himself that way. He can be subtle (the opposite of his team’s new owner). His ads are often worth watching.

Enter the slam dunk poetry ads for VIZIO. These are beautiful. Plus there just are not enough tributes to the tearaway pants. I’m not sure there ever can be. But the bobblehead one is good, too.
