Found August 22, 2013 on Player Perspective:
This week I got my laughs from two commercials. The first one is the EA sports commercial for Madden 25 that features Texans RB Arian Foster (newly released from PUP! yay!) and Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch. Foster and Lynch get all made up to play their “fathers” Darian Foster and Marshawn Lynch Sr friends who trained their sons to later compete against each other at the highest level. The entire commercial I kept thinking about Martin and Eddie Murphy in the movie Life. The other commercial for Footlocker you’ve probably seen already. The OKC Thunder’s James Harden recording a song in the studio as a way of keeping his career fresh but being surprised by his own voice when Golden State’s Steph Curry has producers play the track back. If your ears can take it, you can listen to the complete Harden “song” here. Not sure why you’d want to do that though. Not sure why I did it.
