So Kevin Love is riding along in the NBA on ESPN RV, sitting shot gun when he sees an interesting bill board It features a picture of himself posing seductively in an advertisement for a “Love Dial” hotline.

Love shrugs it off and sees a second one and then decides to call it. When the voice on the other end answers, Love thinks he recognizes it.

“Love dial, who is ready to fall in love,” the voice says.

“Ricky?” Love asks.

“Eh, no. Definitely not Ricky,” Rubio says hanging up. “That was close.”

This ad concept had so much potential and I feel like it fell short of what it could’ve been. It really isn’t that funny or cool, it is kind of lame. How about Kevin Love is driving and he keeps getting phone calls for love advice and then stumbles upon the bill boards?

So much potential.
