The defensive juggernaut that is James Harden appeared in a couple new commercials this week. One for Sportscenter and the other in a Footlocker ad where he pokes fun at his reputation for being a horrible defender.
Atleast he’s a good sport about sucking at an aspect of his sport.
For fellow Houstonians like me, you might recognize the pizza place. It’s actually Siphon Coffee in the Montrose area. Footlocker thought Pizza was “more in their demographic” than Coffee so they changed the menu. Just in case you were wondering how much the producers paid Siphon’s to close for a day and become a pizza joint: $5,500. And how long was the video shoot: 3 hours.
