Plot / Description

This commercial features Blake Griffin, #32 NBA player for the Los Angeles Clippers dressed up in a stunt suit with helmet. Another man sets up an old fashioned phonograph (record player) with a microphone next to it which starts playing an opera song. The guy then gets in a Kia Optima and speeds off. We then see that the car is attached to a rope that Blake Griffin, who is wearing in-line roller skates, is holding on to. As they drive down the track at high speed, the car pulls off to the side as Griffin rides up a huge ramp and flies and flips through the air. The guy from the car gets out and fires a basketball out of a cannon that Griffin catches and slam dunks into a basketball hoop that is 50ft in the air.
