It's no secret here at SHA that we think Mebron James is a world class douchenozzle, so much so that we are pretty sure he wets his bed at night, granted peeing on sheets of gold isn't nearly as bad as what we are all used to, believe me, I looked it up on the internet. Well after the Mebacle back when we all learned where someone "takes their talents", the Mebron machine went in to image restoration overdrive, unfortunately they apparently attended the Tiger Woods school of image restoration, which has since been closed down due to incompetence. Here is the latest ad campaign for the Nike employee, which is not too dissimilar to the self-appointed King's recent Twitter declaration to retweet some of the Twitter hate he receives, which itself is not unlike what a 13 year old girl might do.
I've questioned some of the marketing moves with the Queen's newly tarnished image, but this one really takes the cake. Essentially the 90 second ad - yes, 90 seconds - blames the audience for buying in to the carefully crafted image Team Mebron has been working on for the last eight years, claiming Mebron doesn't have to be what we want him to be. It's pretty classic that he jokes about acting considering he has several ad campaigns which feature more of him acting than doing sports, not to mention he has a movie project in the works. Then there's the idea "should i be a villain"? You don't have a choice you mutant that lacks any sense of self-awareness, you are a villain because you are a world class douche. No stolen routines of the clapping of chalk or team dances are going to change that.
Also calling out Barkley in the commercial? Can someone please give this moron some advice that doesn't resemble what the worst kid in third grade would recommend to his friends?
