A couple weeks ago we posted this Pepsi MAX ad featuring Kyrie Irving hustling street ballers while dressed as an old man. It got an insane amount of traffic and the video went viral. It was a great ad, but more importantly, it was a really cool video.
Now Pepsi wants to give away the Nike Sweatshirt that Kyrie wore in the video along with a $200 Nike Gift Card and a signed Kyrie Irving Pepsi MAX Jersey. All you have to do to enter is tweet about why you love The Big Lead using the hashtags “#biglead” and “#UncleDrew.” The full rules are below, but that is basically it. Not a bad reward for a single tweet. And if you have some friends who may not have been part of the first 7 million people to watch Uncle Drew’s video debut, feel free to share it again.
