Surprise link found between the NBA and 60 year-old, short, white Englishmen:
- The Rolling Stones are featured in the latest NBA television ad as part of the basketball organization's "Love It Live" campaign. The 30-second spot debuted on cable's TNT during Tuesday's (October 29) opening night doubleheader matching the Philadelphia 76ers and Orlando Magic, and the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers.
The Stones' "Love It Live" ad features the legendary rockers performing their hit single "Don't Stop" from their recently released Forty Licks collection. The concert footage, captured on the group's current tour, is interspersed with NBA game highlights featuring such players as Jason Kidd, Shaquille O'Neal, and Kevin Garnett.
Just last week I mistook Kevin Garnett for Keith Richards, then the hallucinogens wore off.
