"Adidas Muhammad Ali Commercial 1995"

Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

Muhammad Ali is my brother. When we was kids, he used to get me to throw rocks at him so he could practice ducking and weaving. I never did hit him. He had natural ability, but he was short on muscles, so he trained hard and got real strong. Maybe not as strong as Sonny Liston, just strong enough to be the greatest heavyweight of all time, that's all. 
I'm 22 years old, I must be the greatest!
