A Few Observations about Magic Johnson’s Fantastic Four Commercial
posted May 15, 2005

image1. Invisible Woman's got hops.
2. Whoever allowed Chiklis' height-challenged Thing to be filmed on the same court as the behemoth-sized Johnson should be fired. I was briefly afraid that Magic would mistake Chiklis for a circus peanut and eat him.
3. Nice job making the '60s character relevant to modern audiences through interaction with a much loved 1980s icon.
4. At the end, Magic Johnson should repeat his Law and Order commercial catchphrase "I like the dead bodies" just to make everyone nervous.
