Derrick Rose schools Ken Jeong in Adidas ad

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

You've wondered, on occasion, what would happen if Derrick Rose and actor Ken Jeong played a game of one-on-one.

It's natural curiosity, after all.

The good people at Adidas have provided video evidence in the form of a 30-second commercial featuring the guard and the naked guy from "The Hangover."

It's part of the marketing campaign for the adiZero Rose.

"It was fun, man," Rose said of the shoot. "Just being with the actor, Ken Jeong. He's a good guy. The adidas staff, they're doing a great job with advertising the shoe, giving me updates about the commercials and everything. And everybody's been talking about [the commercial], so I guess it's pretty good."

Rose noted that he didn't have a favorite commercial of his own, but he realizes just how powerful they can be.

"I'm not really a big commercial fan like that," he said. "I don't need to look at a commercial all day, but some of them are funny. I love funny commercials."
Why am I not surprised Jeong went "skins" in this game?
