Mavericks channel Run-D.M.C. in tremendous new promo

Friday October 31st, 2014

The Dallas Mavericks are very good at basketball, but they are amazing at making promotional videos, and the team's newest work continues its years of video genius, putting together a reboot of legendary rap group Run-D.M.C. with Dirk NowitzkiMonta Ellis, and Chandler Parsons.

The Mavs nail the look and cadence of mid-80's rap, if not the actual talent, but that is secondary to the joys of seeing Monta Ellis in a bucket hat with thick, square lens glasses.

It was really only a matter of time before the Würzburg hip-hop scene got its proper respect from the mainstream, and it looks like that time is now.
