(WJBK) -

In a new ad for Foot Locker, some of the sports world's biggest names poke fun at themselves, including Dennis Rodman, who goes away forever.

Hey, one can dream.

The 60-second spot promotes the shoe store's "Week of Greatness." In it, NBA star Kyrie Irvin compares the event to all being right with the world. A world that includes:

  • Mike Tyson returning the piece of ear he bit off Evander Holyfield 16 years ago.
  • Dennis Rodman deciding to take a one-way trip to North Korea (to which the crowds responds, "He's never coming back!")
  • Brett Favre realizing it's finally time to quit
  • NBA analyst Craig Sager burning a pile of his notoriously outrageous suits.

The ad has been video over 1 million times on YouTube.
