I know, I know. Ads can do crazy things, what with their over-the-top budgets, star power, and flexible format. And sharing them just plays into their whole reason for being. But this ad for Madden ’15 is just nuts, and even though I don’t care for Madden, or sports video games, or Kevin Hart, or Dave Franco, this video has so many absurd, funny, over-the-top turns, that I can’t help myself.

Making a classic song new (or in this case old) again isn’t a new thing. In fact, Post Modern Jukebox has been at it for over four years. Traditionally, the group would perform their remixed renditions in their living room. But apparently, the landlord wasn’t too cool with that. In an effort to keep things going while they plan their ‘eviction tour’, they’ve released this jazzy number. Ordinarily, I’m not a huge fan of their videos (which have been quite popular over the years) but the addition of the new setting and cinematography has me sold.
