Want to be like Russell Westbrook when you grow up? Well, the odds are stacked against you. In this latest hilarious Foot Locker spot featuring the Air Jordan XX9 Low sees Westbrook talking to a fan who wants to be just like him.
The two are quickly interrupted by ESPN analyst Jalen Rose, CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, television host/producer Melissa Rivers, talk show personality Dr. Phil and more, as they explain how unlikely it is for the fan to be exactly like the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard. Westbrook assures his fan that being his authentic, true self is better than being like someone else.
“I always have fun working with Foot Locker and Jordan Brand, but this commercial was particularly memorable with so many different people and well-known personalities,” said Westbrook via a press release. “This holiday season I want to inspire my fans to stay true to themselves and be who they are.”
The Air Jordan XX9 low will be available from Foot Locker and select Jordan Brand retailers this Friday for $185.
