Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Till this morning I didn't know what a Wigald Boning was -- something to do with fish, maybe? Or a sexual position? Nope, turns out he's "a German comedian, musician, TV-moderator and journalist," or everything I wish I were. Only, I prefer his translated Wikipedia bio ("outer trademarks are glasses with cash and its rack suits from shrill substances and materials"). Anyway, that's him with Your Favorite Dallas Maverick, Dirk Nowitzki, in this brand-new ad clearly not airing in the U.S. and A. for Nike's "The Human Race," a 10K that sprints through 25 cities across the globe on August 31 -- closest one to Dallas, by the way, is Austin, aw. A making-of video is after the jump. And Dirk's got a big game today, by the way. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
