    ‘Da Republic of Brooklyn’: A Spike Lee Joint/Uber Commercial (Video)

    Spike Lee directing some commercials isn’t necessarily surprising — Spike has never been shy about teaming up with big corporations when he had to — but I have to admit I am kind of surprised he’s allowed his new collaboration with Uber to get his unique “A Spike Lee Joint” designation (he didn’t even release […]
