Adidas' advertising campaign chronicling the return of Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose from a torn ACL has captured the attention of Bulls and NBA fans alike. Now the superstar takes you behind the scenes of his latest commercial.

The commercial, titled "Wake Up", shows the city of Chicago's reaction the moment they hear of the season-ending injury to their MVP. The basketball courts are motionless, the people of Chicago are inconsolable and the city as a whole is silent. But the depression of the fans is contrasted with the activity of Rose's rehabilitation.
