Charles Barkley is your new IT guy

Brilliant commercial has Barkley working in "it"

Set to debut over this weekend during the college basketball tournament finals, this brilliant ad for CDW shows a company that can "win at everything", except their basketball rec league games. So they hire Charles Barkley to work in their IT department as a ringer, since they already get most of their IT from CDW.

Ever the pitchman, Barkley generates some great laughs, especially when he calls IT "it".
