USA Today has news today that Blake Griffin is paying homage to the greatest basketball advertising campaign in history*, the Michael Jordan-Mars Blackmon spots from the 1980′s. Here is a photo from said shoot.
*says I, but surely you agree
I don’t know if this is for an upcoming commercial campaign (USA Today only notes it is a photoshoot), but it does make me wonder — would you consider a new commercial featuring BG and Mars to be a fitting tribute to MJ, or would you consider it blasphemy? I say I’m all for it, and not just because I think Griffin is the most exciting player to come into the league since MJ — I just love me some Spike Lee as Mars.
What do you think?
