Yes, this is an ad for Pepsi Max (which isn’t awful, but isn’t regular Pepsi by a long shot), but it’s a damn amusing ad. NBA Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving spent a few hours in a makeup chair so he would look like an old man. Then he went to a local court and hustled some normals. I like to think that it wasn’t a complete fake because seeing an old guy play ball like Kyrie Irving is awesome and I would freak out too. Did anyone wonder what the cameras were doing there? I need to stop thinking. Just enjoy Kyrie looking like an old guy. It certainly helps explain why he knows all the words to the songs in Rent.
Big moment in sports.
A bigger, more likable Zdeno Chara.
