THE QUEST FOR G


Garnett, Kareem, Jordan, Jeter and The Jabbawockeez spoofing Monty Python's Quest for The Holy Grail; how dope is that? I ignored this at first thinking it was a continuation of Lil' Wayne's "What's G" campaign (I thought those were annoying as hell, mostly due to Wayne's ridiculous voice) but damn was I mistaken.

This thing is loaded with cameos: Garnett the Glorious (Kevin Garnett), Jeter the Gifted (Derek Jeter), Jimmie the other Gifted (Jimmie Johnson), Sir Bolt the Gutsy (Usain Bolt), Sir Bolt's pet “Ego”, Misty & Keri the 3 legged and 2 headed knight (Misty May & Keri Walsh), Alicia the girl that made horse trotting noises (Alicia Sacramone)... Also, bonus points goes to anyone who can spot Michael Jordan's brief appearance.

You've got to give credit to TBWA and Buck for not fucking this thing up (which could have easily happened), instead they've managed to capture the tone and charm of the original perfectly. Check it.

    Dismount that! haha

    If it were not for the logo of G, i would've thought that they were talking about gin. Funny how that would be equally fitting.

    Thank you!

    ...

    Lol, if this was a video about Kevin Garnett and a bunch of traveling Olympians in search of the Holy Gin, which turns out to be in the possession of Michael Jordan... damn, that would be epic.
