Louis Vuitton pays tribute to "The Greatest," boxer Muhammad Ali, with the digital experience The Greatest Words. In two short films, "Float" and "Life," spoken word artist Yasiin Bey and calligrapher Niels Shoe Meulman revisit the words of Mohammad Ali, with a helping hand from rapper/actor Mos Def.

Mos Def changed his name to Yasiin Bey the beginning of 2012. So "spoken word artist Yasiin Bey ... revisit[s] the words of Mohammad Ali, with a helping hand from rapper/actor Mos Def" doesn't make any sense.

Louis Vuitton managed the near impossible: It has created a paper cut-out of Mohammad Ali. The work is a cheap and empty—if beautifully produced—bit of exploitation. It takes Mr. Ali completely out of context and turns him into a Ken Doll. The man's significance transcended boxing and his renowned braggadocio. I suspect it's a good thing that Mr. Ali is too ill to realize how he and his life has been transformed into a tame fantasy—Vuitton turned a magnificent symbol of defiance into a meek house slave serving compulsive consumerism. The print work is even more insulting, and could not be more condescending. Yes, Louis Vuitton has achieve something extraordinary: It turned a great, complex figure of genuine historic importance into a caricature.
