this is just a classic in the DC area, thought i would spread it to some people outside of the area... watch the Bullets of the late 1990s dance around goofily to a Bullets song... consider this in honor of Chris Webber's retirement lol.

:sign0020: Funny commercial!

How tall was George Muresan?! 7'7 or 7'8?

Muresan was 7'7. Here he is in some more classics:

This reminds me of a commercial they played in Orlando in '92 right after Shaq was drafted: "...and now we've got the man no one else has, Shaquille O'Neal!" Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't everyone "the man no one else has"? You didn't see them speaking in such supposedly high terms about Marcin Gortat or Amal McCaskill.

No, he retired. He played three years in France after leaving the NBA, and now lives in New Jersey with his family.

Muresan still frequents Wizards games. I do not know if he has some job with the Wizards, but he is there all the time. Almost every game I go to you see him walking about.

& that cologne spoof was one of my favorites growing up haha.

I looked for the other Snickers commercial with him in it, where he's doing a public service announcement with some kids' basketball team, and tries to toss the ball backwards over his shoulder and make the shot, and he tries it several times and can't hit it, then he gets pissed off and starts shouting at everyone while the camera guy eats a Snickers and thinks "why me?"

Couldn't find it.
