Being a fan of everything that is Wizard, I know that I can't have a completely objective opinion of any Wizard in any ad (e.g. Brendan Haywood and Eastern Motors. Yeah, I thought those were the absolute best). So I looked for expert reactions that might validate my enthusiasm.

From Washington insider, John McLaughlin:
If only Capitol Hill performed as well as John Wall in his Best Buy ad... Bye Bye.

There we have it! From film critics to political junkies, everyone agrees John Wall is much more than just a basketball superstar.
