While Michael Jordan maybe the greatest athlete of all-time, he apparently wasn’t the best at reading lines. The legendary Chicago Bulls basketball player was a pitchman for numerous companies such as McDonald’s, Nike, Coca-Cola and Hanes, but these hilarious outtakes show that he labored through this Gatorade commercial with 15 stuttering and wrongly enunciated takes of a very simple tagline of: “Gatorade, is it in you?”

We have a feeling that we couldn’t do any better. Happy Birthday, MJ!
