Tuesday Throwback: RIP Windell Middlebrooks, The Miller High Life Guy

Actor Windell Middlebrooks died today at the age of 36. He had roles on prominent shows such as Scrubs, Body of Proof, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, but he was probably best known as the down-to-earth delivery man in a Miller High Life campaign. Here are a few of his High Life spots. RIP. I’m sure you’re living the high life somewhere.

Powerade: Featuring Derrick Rose And Tupac Shakur

Last week, Chicago Bulls star point guard Derrick Rose underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus. It’s the latest in a long line of knee injuries for Rose. The Bulls say he should be able to return for the playoffs, but at this point it’s easy to wonder if Rose might be the new Penny Hardaway; a great player who is ultimately betrayed by his body. Under that lens, this new Powerade spot featuring a voiceover by Tupac Shakur seems especially poignant. It shows a young boy who represents a young Derrick Rose riding his bike through Chicago’s rough South Side to the United Center, paralleling Rose’s own life. The video is beautifully shot, and Tupac’s powerful words from “The Rose That Grew From Concrete” adds to the scene. Great work.
