Meet Adam Reposa: Lawyer, Patriot, Champion, Maker of Insane Ads

Witness this ludicrous commercial for Texas lawyer Adam Reposa titled "Lawyer, Patriot, Champion," wherein he rams his giant Chevy into a Chrysler Cirrus, kicks in the window and repeatedly yells, "I AM A LAWYER!!!" According to Reposa, who is indeed a lawyer: "What happened was: I had a concept for an ad that was going to be pretty simple. I've shot and edited it. It was supposed to be very simple: 'I'm Adam Reposa. I am a lawyer. Don't get in the way of my truck.' " The state bar of Texas ruled earlier this year that the ad couldn't air because it showed "behavior unfitting of a lawyer." But it went viral online, and as Reposa explained on the Texas Lawyer Blog, "Now, everyone loves it." Of course, there are always two sides to a story. Bob Ray, the filmmaker hired to direct the commercial, says his friendship with Reposa has soured since the video went viral and a network contacted Reposa to make a reality show, sans Ray. Ray also admits to having been drunk during the editing. No clue if a reality show is coming anytime soon, but you can see more of Reposa in Ray's movie Total Badass (link is NSFW) about Reposa's assistant, Chad Holt—a big-dicked cokehead who raises guinea pigs for show.
