San Antonio Spurs Face Off in Cooking Challenge (Video)
Things haven’t been going well for the San Antonio Spurs this season. Not that its much cause for concern, since everyone knows they don’t really try until February at the earliest. That being said, they are looking especially old this year, with injuries piling up and their vaunted defense looking slower and slower. Apparently, though, they had time to film this ridiculous commercial. It’s funny, but it could definitely use more eye candy.
The commercial takes place on the set of a show that is based off of The Iron Chef. It features the Spurs big three, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker, as well as George “Iceman” Gervin. They are dressed in full chef gear in order to participate in some sort of mock HEB ice cream competition. Each creates his own “creamy creation” for the competition. The creations they make are disgusting and funny. Duncan’s Curry and Sweet Cream and Parker’s French Vanilla with Brie cheese are hilarious, but Ginobili’s unintelligible Chocolate with Chimichuli (Chimichili? Chilichumi?) is the weirdest looking.
In a sport where on-court talent translates to a movie career, this isn’t all that out of the ordinary. The truth is these guys have all the time in the world for fake cooking competitions, since all three of them have missed time already in this young 2009-2010 season. Keep cooking up great ice cream and silly commercials though guys, and I’m sure your team will have no trouble climbing out of the early hole they have dug themselves.
