Dennis Rodman is back on his way to North Korea, which makes the Foot Locker commercial above especially pertinent. He’s reportedly going to train the North Korean basketball team (one can only imagine the penalty for missing a free throw) and play in an exhibition game against other former NBA players in his “basketball diplomacy” efforts.

If only he’d care less about his BFF Kim Jong-un and more about Kenneth Bae, an American held in a deplorable prison camp for more than a year on accusations that he planned a coup against Kim, or 85-year-old Korean War vet Merrill Newman, pulled off a plane nearly six weeks ago in Pyongyang and forced to confess on TV to trumped-up war crimes charges. If only the Foot Locker commercial depicted reality.

Revoke his passport and make him stay there if he's not going to bring his fellow Americans home with him.
