Michael Jordan and that damn mustache return for Hanes

By Todd Wasserman on Wed Jul 28 2010

This latest ad for Hanes starts out promising. A seatmate of Michael Jordan's addresses the NBA legend with a peeve about previous commercials for the underwear maker: "Mike, I've got a little constructive criticism for you. There's one thing I don't like about your commercials..." Now, I know what your thinking. They're finally going to address that Hitler mustache. But no, it turns out to be a dumb rant on another topic. And Jordan is still sporting that 'stache. I realize that he probably shot a series of ads in one day, but couldn't they erase it with CGI? Meanwhile, we'll all keep speculating on why the world's most beloved basketball player continues to offer a furry homage to the world's worst dictator. Best theory: He lost a bet with Charles Barkley.
