“The Inner Workings of a Creator”

A three-way collaboration between Adidas, FreeDarko and Chali 2na from Jurassic 5 spawned the following commercial, which mimics the style FD’s book The Macrophenomenal Pro Basketball Almanac.

Joakim Noah: Lovin’ the offseason

Any defeat-related agony that Joakim suffered over that Game 7 loss to the Celtics is apparently long forgotten. He can now be found in beautiful St. Barts, surfing, clowning, drinking, flexing Hulk Hogan-style, burying people in sand and (NSFW) frollicking in the ocean with busty, topless beach babes.
