New Derrick Rose Powerade ad is fantastic

I loved this.

Derrick Rose may not be on the court for the rest of the season (this ad¬†clearly was shot before the latest knee injury), but Powerade released this ad and it’s quality.

The voice over is from Tupac’s “The Rose That Grew from Concrete:”

We wouldn’t ask why a rose that grew from the concrete for having damaged petals, in turn, we would all celebrate its tenacity, we would all love its will to reach the sun, well, we are the roses, this is the concrete and these are my damaged petals, dont ask me why, thank god, and ask me how.
