TNT NBA Thursday's "Ben/Height"
In TNT/NBA's humorous ad "Ben/Height" comedic journalist, Ali G, interviews NBA star Ben Wallace about his height and weight. The 6'9" unintentionally offends Ali G by saying Ali G cannot train to be as tall as him. In his traditionally poor grammar and exaggerated English accent, Ali G responds, "Yo man, don't playa hate, yo; Just 'cause I is from the UK." TNT and NBA logos flash on the screen to advertise opening night on November 1.
