ESPN Reveals the Down Side to Being ‘Michael Jordan’

Micheal Jordan ESPN

Michael Jordan has been in some great TV commercials over the years. But the best MJ ad we’ve seen in a while doesn’t even feature Michael Jordan. Well, the ESPN spot doesn’t feature that Michael Jordan. Instead it’s all about a poor schlub whose parents happened to give him the same name as the Hall of Famer. Witness the pain of sharing a legendary name.

If you think it’s bad for him, just imagine what it would be like if you were given a more unusual celebrity name — like Kim Kardashian or Ryan Gosling. Then you’d really leave some dispointed limo drivers in your wake.

Actually, the folks in the ad are pretty lucky they got the other Michael Jordan. By all account the real one is a jerk and an inconsistent tipper. But you’re probably not going to hear about that in commercial for ESPN.
