The San Antonio Spurs are famous for their HEB commercials, but you really don’t see too many athletes doing local spots anymore. Comparatively, big name athletes are doing more work for big name brands in 2017 than they were in 1987.
The folks over at Jimmy Kimmel Live! decided to try to reinvigorate the local TV commercial market in L.A. by using Los Angeles Lakers forward Julius Randle as their famous athlete.
What store did they make an ad for?
Why the L.A. Rocking Chair Store of course, complete with the kind of gems you get in local ads. You know, like giving directions by saying things like “just down the block from the yogurt shop”.
The concept is pretty funny and the ad is worth watching.
