Unlike 90 percent of the commercial spots Russell Westbrook and Blake Griffin do, the latest ad campaign featuring the two hoops stars (with local ties) isn’t a funny one.
And it’s not intended to be.
Westbrook and Griffin appear on a Jordan spot set to release during All-Star weekend (video below), promoting the strange-looking zip-up XX8′s that Westbrook debuted on the court last month.
The colorful commercial includes Blake Griffin dunking a glow ball, some awesome special effects and our first opportunity to see what it’d be like if Russell Westbrook decided to wear his postgame attire during the game.
