John Thompson III and John Thompson love their Dove

Georgetown coaches past and present star in a soap commercial

The notion of a college basketball coach — especially the coach of the college basketball team you root for — endorsing a sensitive-skin soap is enough to, well, make your skin crawl.

But Casual Hoya has the right idea. Put the horror aside, lather up and embrace the coolness of a Dove commercial involving Present Georgetown Coach John Thompson III and Past Georgetown Coach John Thompson and their “Journey to Comfort.”

(I admit I could have done without the stuff about sweat in this next one. I also admit that I am a sensitive-skin sufferer and use Dove soap.)

There’s some adorableness after the jump.
