In A World Consumed By Darkness, Dwight Howard and Lebron James Don't Need CGI

We kick off with an ad for Airbender, which as far as I can tell is a CGI—heavy kung-fu epic directed by M. Night Shymalan. This means that the film will end with the surprise twist of the hero being a giant animatronic hamster who has been dead the entire time.

Another abuse of CGI came with the Lebron/Dwight Howard remake of the famous Jordan/Bird shootout commercial, where somehow the admeisters behind this thought they needed digital effects to make two nearly 7 foot tall men with Herculean physiques and the ability to jump five feet in the air look impressive on camera.

The punchline: Larry Bird needs free food! I’d like to think this is part of the script, but seriously, Larry Bird will steal your food. Lock your cabinets accordingly.
