“Why don’t you go on and get an all-star ballot right now, and punch in my name. That’s right, it’s Chris Bosh. Best thing about it is, you think it’s $20? No sir. You think it’s $10. No ma’am. Even five? Nuh-uh. It is free, that is right. We don’t want your money here, we just want your vote.”

Props to the Raptor, who looks like a raptor, for an entertaining and inventive campaign to be voted into the NBA All-Star game.

Bosh’s minute-long parody of used car dealership commercials gives fans something to laugh about while still reminding them to fill in their all-star ballot.

The campaign is likely to work, too. The Chicago White Sox’s 2006 “Punch A.J.” promotion employed similar tactics in sending catcher A.J. Pierzynski to the Midsummer Classic. Here’s hoping it works again to send CB-4 to New Orleans this season.
