Coach K, In His Skivvies, Shoots Guitar Hero Spot

Need I say more?

The typically-conservative coach–along with Roy Williams, Rick Pitino and Bobby Knight, his mentor—stripped down to his skivvies to rock out 'Risky Business'-style for an advertisement for Guitar Hero, and ESPN has released some behind-the-scenes footage of the shoot. Sliding around on a hardwood floor with white socks, white boxers and a pink Oxford, Krzyzewski relished in doing his best Tom Cruise impression.

"Obviously it's a parody of 'Risky Business' that we've all seen and kind of imagined yourself doing it, although you can't tell your players and your family that you've imagined doing it," Krzyzewski told a camerman. "So getting the opportunity to be a part of that is kind of a really cool thing. And then to do it with Coach Knight, and Roy and Rick—that made it even better."

This post, in particular, seems well-suited for banter, so... feel free to post your thoughts below. 'Risky Business' was rated R, but please, let's keep the comments more PG.
