anyone else notice what’s wrong with this advert?

hoops ad

yes, that’s right – they’re implying that you jump through basketball hoops. which makes no sense whatsoever. and then you realise that in a nation which knows less about basketball than probably any other american sport, it’s probably not so weird that it went unnoticed.

i think what they meant was something more along the lines of this:

flaming hoops

some days i feel like a stranger in a strange land.
