If you've been waiting for the first playoffs-themed NBA ad that's a spoof of an already successful television commercial, then you wait for some pretty oddly specific things. Nonetheless, the Mavericks and Caron Butler(notes) have you covered. Covered in fragrant Mavs Musk, that is.
Two thumbs up, five stars, every other accolade imaginable — this video deserves it all. The original commercial is amazing, so an NBA version is just awesome icing on the excellent cake.
We should all be thankful that the Wizards traded Caron Butler to the Mavericks. Dallas' PR department must have been waiting months for someone to join the team with a voice that would match that of the original. Then Caron just waltzed in to their lives, making this video possible. If Butler were still in Washington, we'd be deprived of this 34 second slice of paradise. And that, my friends, would be a genuine tragedy.
