Strangest. Basketball. Commercial. Ever.

Sometimes you see a commercial and you realize you are not the target audience. Like every time I see a shampoo ad.

Or this one… where I have no idea who the target market is. Hoops playing botanists? Or maybe I do not understand Argentinian culture and marketing well. Clearly, they spent some bills to get quality production value on this and got Carlos Delfino and Luis Scola to be in it. But the plant thing….. I was expecting an ad for Round-Up. (Via the leg-en-dary Trey Kerby of Ball Don’t Lie, and Nice Kicks)

    For one thing, it’s Chinese, not Argentinian… And Chinese got some of the wackiest ads ever. But yeah, I’m lost.

    Might as well have been a Visa commercial.

    reminded me of that terrible terrible “movie” called The Fountain starring Hugh Jackman.
