The "What's G" commercial

There's been this TV commercial that's been running for a while now for some kind of variation on Gatorade. This clip shows a slightly different version than the one I'm used to seeing, but you'll get the idea.

There's something terribly creepy about it - from the guys in white death masks, to the Parkinsons-stricken Muhammad Ali. It seems to be targeting athletes/black radicals from the sixties or something. The lighting is so stark, it's actually less spooky to watch in LOW definition.

Now along comes a sequel. Just when you think it's going to be slightly less disturbing than the original, they pan to -- JACKIE ROBINSON? Didn't he die, like - fifty years ago?
