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.
