Ken Jeong, Dwight Howard Get Beastly in Latest Adidas Ad

They’re baaaaack, folks as NBA star Dwight Howard and actor/comedian Ken Jeong (aka Slim Chin) bust out more of the funny in 180 LA’s latest spot in its “Fast Don’t Lie” effort for Adidas (the music video that kickstarted it all has racked up 1.3 million YouTube views according to the agency). The latest Stacy Wall-directed joint, dubbed “The Beast,” features sky-whips, a pile of Benjamins, a cheetah and of course, the hi-top sneakers that the ad’s promoting. It’s “sing-song time”, people. Credits after the jump.
