Lebron James Powerade Eighty Footer Fake. Who Knew? Who Cares?

John Brock sent us this Snopes analysis of the latest Powerade commercial showing Lebron James making four full court, 80 foot slam dunks. While Snopes goes into lengthy detail on how the commercial has been digitally manipulated to make it appear James is actually making those 80 footers, they forget to mention the obvious: in every shot, the ball leaves the frame then comes back making fakery very easy here. Then again, who really care? It's just a stupid Powerade commercial.

They aren't really slam dunks. They are baskets... a slam dunk is when one jumps to the basket and actually puts the ball into the basket.

"slam dunks"? come on, it's no wonder you weren't interested in the ads since you are a chick (obviously) who doesn't care about ball.
