Tim Duncan Gets SUPER-Excited in Latest Foot Locker Spot
- Updated: November 19, 2014
It’s almost holiday time. And as the “shopping season” gets pushed earlier and earlier, it means brands and marketers are turning on their efforts as well. Luckily, that means the “week of greatness” is back from Foot Locker. The weeklong pre-Turkey Day blitz from the footwear retailer traditionally integrates athletes and does so in a comedic manner. Luckily, this year is no different.
In this year’s ad, Derrick Rose and Tim Duncan deliver the star power. The spot scores because it plays off of the historically reserved/stoic/non-emotive Mr. Duncan. Check it out. Duncan is clearly SUPER-excited. See, he knocked over a plant. As D-Rose explains, Timmy “never gets this excited.”
Slow clap. Well played.
We dig how Foot Locker rolls outside of the holidays too. “No Rings” is another recent favorite.
