Christian Laettner Steals the Show in this AT&T March Madness Ad (Video)

Christian Laettner

Christian Laettner might not be coming up in regular conversation, since it’s been about 25 years since he was at his most notable, but he is enjoying his notoriety around March Madness time. In this AT&T commercial, a group of very prominent athletes (Shaq, Clyde Drexler, Dr. J, Laettner) are sitting around musing on what it takes to succeed in the NCAA tournament.

Rather than ruin the joke, I’ll let you guys watch the video first:

Pretty funny stuff, actually. However, I have to take issue with Christian Laettner saying he LITERALLY built that hammock out of laurels. He didn’t. If he had literally built it out of laurels, it would have been made out of “any of a number of shrubs and other plants with dark green glossy leaves.” 

Nope. It was made out of nets. A figurative”laurel.”

Ok. That’s enough sucking the fun out of this ad. Sorry about that.
