Blake Griffin Takes on Marvin the Martian in an New Nike Ad (Video)

Marvin the Martian

Back in the early-mid 90s, the Air Jordan brand took a pretty weird departure (likely around the time of Space Jam) in which it seemed all of Michael Jordan‘s commercials involved Looney Toons and the lamentable “Hare Jordan.” It wasn’t the finest hour in the history of the Jordan brand.

It now looks like it might be making a slight return, if this Blake Griffin ad is to be believed. He appears on the outdoor courts in Venice, CA, squaring off against Marvin the Martian in some sort of interplanetary dunk contest.

Here’s the weird, long video:

The only thing I can think of is that this is some long-term precursor to Space Jam 2. In fact, that almost seems likely.

I guess in the future, we should be careful what we wish for when it comes to sequels for nostalgic movies that REALLY weren’t that great in the first place.
