Bo diddley - bo diddley's greatest hits


The original "Bo Knows" ad was a television commercial by firm Wieden & Kennedy . The spot opens with a shot of Jackson playing baseball and fellow ballplayer Kirk Gibson saying, "Bo knows baseball." The next scene shows Jackson on the gridiron , with quarterback Jim Everett explaining, "Bo knows football." Jackson then plays basketball , tennis , ice hockey , professional wrestling , and goes running , with Michael Jordan , John McEnroe , Hulk Hogan , and Joan Benoit vouching for Jackson's knowledge of their sports ( Wayne Gretzky , when confronted with Jackson laying a body check , simply says "No.") The ad concludes with Jackson trying to play the guitar —and failing badly—whereupon blues legend Bo Diddley exclaims, "Bo, you don't know Diddley!" Coincidentally, the spot first aired during the commercial break immediately following Jackson's lead-off home run in the 1989 Major League Baseball All-Star Game . The music for the "Cross Training" ads was written and performed by Diddley.
