Brief Explanation

The legendary new spokesman for Old Spice Dirt Destroyer rides the back of a whale while hitting tennis balls. A group of paparazzi stand at the other end of the whale, trying to get an action shot as the legendary man blindfolds himself and starts hitting baseballs. The man's inner thoughts make him question how far is too far to push himself, and why he spent his life savings on sunglasses for the whale.
