It's making fun of how rumors start from nothing then spread like wildfire over the internet and such.

Yeah, it's clearly making fun of the media spreading rumors.

100% harmless though. I like it.

That commercial, only exposed as through a simple cell, the whole world can know about what you upload to the Internet. Promotion for T-Mobile, period.

of course its promotion, but I think if you look back to the summer we just had, theres more to it. remember........ wades going to new york, no he's staying in miami, no wait, he;s going to chicago..... no he's going to stay in miami.

Yes its poking fun at the media. It probably wasn't Wade's idea. Anyways it doesn't really matter. I thought it was worth a chuckle or two.

Yea, IMO it's poking fun at the media, cause whatever any superstar FA was saying, it would be blown outta proportion.

yes it is but not just the media if u notice it was also poking fun at fans (in the commercials case boston and orlando fans holding up wade jerseys) kinda like in real life where the NY or Bulls fans were swearing theyd get lebron. There should be a part two to the commercial where the fans end up hating d wade out of nowhere kinda like whats going on now hmmm what a coincidence.

i know that but in wades commercial its like hes lebron where every little thing he saids gets exagerated and made to look like hes a bad guy (in this case by wanting out of miami). Get it.

Wade would make the prettiest woman. Put a dress on him and you'd never know he was a man.

What a poorly made commercial. The acting, story and production value are just awful.

The commercial is satirizing the nature of the 'on-demand' society we live in. It barely scratches actual news media.

It's rather telling how someone could watch this commercial and presume it pokes fun of the media instead of media in general (there's a rather pronounced difference there). Journalists everywhere are no doubt cringing at that connection.

Thanks for sharing that man I had missed it!

Yeah thats pretty funny lil poke at the media or as I like to call the nba media TMZtakeout. The real joke is I coud really see that happening in real life, and yes we would probably make a 10 page thread about it! lol

Obviously the commercial is to make fun of the media, in a humorous way. But Wade has nothing to do with the commercial, do you think he wrote the script?

One thing to talk about the commercial, or discuss the character played by D-Wade (in this case the same lol) and another thing, is to talk about D-Wade in real life.

Very clever. Of course it makes fun of the media and how rumors are spread out of nothing
