Apparently Dwyane Wade(notes) is some amalgamation of a superhero in his latest Nike ad. It's a season-long campaign that will see Wade (not as "Flash," which is unfortunate because "Flash" was a super-amazing movie; but as "D3") vanquish all manner of bad guys (from the Lakers, Magic and Celtics; if we're reading this correctly) in advertisement form.
The clip features comedian Kevin Hart, and it's not bad. It's nowhere near as good as LeBron James'(notes) recent ad, though. A clear step down. Which probably means that Chris Bosh's(notes) upcoming Nike ad will merely feature him tying his shoes while whistling the theme from "Green Acres."
Actually, that doesn't sound half bad.
