I've tried my luck at Google to no avail, so here goes ... Has anyone seen that Mountain Dew commercial, where the basketball player has to make his way through an assortment of samurais/ninjas/demons from hell in order to score a layup, then says "Didn't even touch me" right before his clothes (and afro) comically fall in tatters to the floor?

Does anyone know where I can find some info (producers, screengrabs, download, etc) about this commercial?

I've seen it way too many times. I thought it was hokey the first time and I get more annoyed with each viewing.

Have you googled it?

Here's some links, hope they help.

Mountain Dew is a client of BBDO New York.

It'll probably be at www.adforum.com sooner or later.

EDIT: Or www.boardsmag.com.

The basketball player is Philip Champion (a.k.a. "Hot Sauce") from the And-1 MixTape & ESPN's Streetball.

That might help you find more info on the ad...

Yeah, that includes the extra long version that I'd never seen before ... Ninjas and hockey players and Neo rip-offs, oh my!
