Stunning accuracy. Sure, Jamison looks a little blocky, but everything else is perfect. I think that’s Steve Francis with his head turned, not watching the play. They captured the magic of advertising with a TNT ad right next to an NBA TV ad, and there’s a T-Mobile ad thrown in for good measure. Most importantly, look at how they’ve put empty seats in Madison Square Garden.

Bravo! Standing ovation.
