What's up with Michael Jordan's Mustache?
DBSF—like most American males born in the 1970s and 1980s—views Michael Jordan as the closest thing to a living deity (Jordan’s like JFK for Irish Catholics born in the 1940s and 1950s.)
For DBSF there are two Michael Jordan. The first Jordan runs from his birth to crossing-over Byron Russell in game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals (Think Space Jams, Michael Jordan’s playground, Spike Lee, and Craig Ehlo). The second Jordan starts with him playing for the Wizards and includes other regrettable decisions, like drafting Kwame Brown and Adam Morrison, and buying the Charlotte Bobcats.
This most recent Hanes ad falls under ‘second Jordan’. Why does Michael Jordan have a Hitler-mustache? Surely he doesn't really think that the little man-rock bassist puff of hair beneath his lip neutralizes it or something?
