Foot Locker and adidas Originals are gearing up for back-to-school season with a new commercial starring comedian Jimmy Kimmel and rising NBA stars Damian Lillard and Andrew Wiggins.
The brief clip features Lillard playing the mentor role for the younger Wiggins, offering up some style tips for the 2015 Rookie of the Year. Thankfully, both guys are dipped in fresh adidas gear from Foot Locker, including the “Prism Sole” and “Red Galaxy” ZX Flux colorways.
This keeps them a step ahead of washed-up ballers like Bobby Butter, a has-been hooper played by Kimmel. “Playing Bobby Butter allowed me to showcase both my basketball skills and sick street style. I’ve been wearing adidas since the ’80s when I was one of the founding members of Run-DMC,” Kimmel said jokingly.
It sounds like Damian Lillard enjoyed the experience, too. “I’ve been in a few Foot Locker spots now and they keep getting more fun each time. It was awesome getting to do this one and I’m excited to see what the fans think,” he said.
