Rave – Tyson gives Holyfield his ear back!

mikeear

It isn’t often that television commercials get major sports figures to make fun of themselves so openly but this new commercial for Foot Locker does it repeatedly and BRILLIANTLY!  It has major athletes (and a commentator) correcting their biggest blunders.  It features Craig Sagers (veteran sideline sportscaster known for wild suits) burning his wardrobe, Brent Favre knowing when to say when, Dennis Rodman deciding to move to Korea and – the most brilliant one of all – a rather repentant looking Mike Tyson returning Evander Holyfield’s ear.  He then exclaims “I kept it in formaldehyde.”   Kudos to the ad agency which wrote this spot and kudos to the people involved willing to poke a little fun at themselves.
