Karl-Anthony Towns is one of the best basketball players on the planet. He is a rare mix of size, speed and athleticism.

As a rookie he won the NBA Skills Competition and is one of the league's most marketable young stars.

So what do you think might happen if he goes 1-on-1 against an "average Joe" from off the street? Well you don't have to wonder anymore, because Gatorade produced an ad series about it – the results are something to behold.
