T-Mobile's NBA series

Basketball's Dwyane Wade and Charles Barkley prove themselves to be one of the better comedy duos to grace the small screen in recent years with their series of T-Mobile ads. In this Super Bowl spot, Miami Heat star Wade finally gains entry to Barkley's "Fave Five" after several commercials' worth of trying to curry favor with the Hall of Famer. And boy does Wade come to regret it. The retired Barkley has apparently become one of the idle rich, with nothing to do but call Wade over and over again to ask such urgent questions as, "You like popsicles?" Barkley is wonderfully self-effacing (look at his fridge!) and Wade does exasperated like a pro.
