Charles Barkley’s Taco Bell Commercials Suck, The OG Nike Ones Did Not

FACT: Watching the lame NBA Dunk contest, and most other All-Star festivities on TV, has made it clear; Charles Barkley’s Taco Bell commercials are God awful. [Side Note: Here that TB can help you lose weight? GTFOH.]

To his credit, The Round of Mound of Rebound’s T-Mobile commercials with Dwyane Wade and Dwight Howard have been amusing. But Charles Barkley’s OG Nike commercials were classic material. With that in mind, watch some of the best below, if only to get that nasty Taco Bell visual out of your mind.

The infamous “I Am Not a Role Model” Commercial

Sir Charles  yams it on Godzilla. Of course.

For the Nike Air Force Max 180s, Chuck goes anime.

Charles Barkley + Humpty Hump = Harold Miner lost.

Never really liked this one, but Barkley as an opera singer is gold. Plus, it’s a commercial for the “Fab Five” Air Force Max.

Neneh Cherry raps #34’s praises.

David “Mr.” Robinson, and his flattop, chops it up with Barkley about fines.

Chuck D + Charles Barkley = a winner.

Radio Raheem X Love & Hate X Robert Mitchum?

Who says the Internets can’t be educational? The homie Chuck Creekmur mentioned something about love = hate via Twitter and it motivated me look up Radio Raheem’s Love vs. Hate monologue from Do The Right Thing. Spike Lee got the NYC establishment’s panties in a bunch when he dropped this wonderful flick in ’89. I love the movie but ’til this day I can’t bear to watch its final 10-15 minutes. I won’t drop any spoilers but if for some odd reason you haven’t seen it; what are you thinking?

Oh yeah, the educational aspect of the above clip… I had no idea Spike ripped the concept from The Night of the Hunter. Might be worth checking out. Radio!

Black Steele in the Hour of Colbert

Vodpod videos no longer available.

RNC Chairman Michael Steele aka token whipping boy aka pwnd by Rush Limbaugh is looking more like soft copper daily. As for Colbert’s rhyming; thoroughly suspect but highly entertaining. And to think, Colbert’s middle name is Tyrone.

On a barely related note, a daily dose of Chuck D never hurt anybody, save for the suckas. Shout out to the pinstripe hoody. [spotted at Huffingtonpost Post via Comedy Central]
