Another silly video is spreading rapidly through the Internet, this
one dubbed the "Afro Ninja."  My challenge: Please identify (by name)
the man in the video.  If you're able to find his contact information
or any other details about the video's origins, feel free to pass them
on too.

The earliest reference of the video I could find (around August 26) called it
"," but later versions were renamed to
"afroninja.mpg."  Many websites refer to the video as an audition
tape (one claimed it was from the "Batman Begins" auditions), but I
haven't been able to find any evidence of this or any
other origins.  (Personally, I think it looks like a cable access TV show.)

Good luck, and thank you!

the movie is 'copyright' @radicalmedia, which is probably might be a good place to start looking.

The guy's name is Mark Hicks. It was for a Nike commercial with Allen
Iverson and Jim Kelly.
