Wade Walking on the Wild Side


Anyone else find it a little out of place and borderline disturbing that the background music of one of the NBA's top commercial poster boy Dwayne Wade's Gatorade commercial features "Walk on the Wild Side." If you are not familiar with the tune, it is described as "a Lou Reed song from his 1972 second solo album Transformer. The song received wide radio coverage, despite its touching on topics such as transsexuality, drugs, male prostitutes and oral sex, and is usually regarded as Reed's best-known solo work."

Good for Reed. Um, not so hot for D Wade?

Strange enough the G2 Jeter commercial talks about "every kind of 'mo there is."
