Loren Woods Outlook:

Very thin upper body, but leaps well, good timing, nice shooting touch, runs floor very well, and works on his game. If he was 30 pounds heavier, he could be a dominant player, but often times it is very hard for players of this size to gain weight. He hasn’t played much so far this year and could break out like he did last year. Has had a tough season thus far and when playing against heavier players, he has trouble on offense, getting position.

A classical ad (Bronze Lion) ripped-off frame by frame… even the car color remained the same. Only some details had changed : the guy is replaced by a sexy girl, and the black man isn’t black anymore… very representative of the contemporary state of mind? (not to say more…)

The agency in charge of the 2010 version is called "Talent". The only talent they seem to have is the one for recycling old ideas… and maybe they are talented also to lie to their clients about how original their ideas really are.
