Can BFFs Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, the terrific twosome of the Los Angeles Clippers, stay angry at each for long? We learn the answer in 72andSunny's brief bro-mantic comedy below, the latest in a series of spots touting the Google Duo video-calling app.
Blake Griffin usually soars over everyone else. But in David&Goliath's latest Kia campaign, the Los Angeles Clippers star ascends to new heights: a dreamworld where only the most effortlessly cool competitors—and car drivers—reside.
In case you weren't feeling quite old enough today, the classic Michael Jordan vs. Looney Tunes drama Space Jam will celebrate its 20th anniversary next November. But Nike's newest ad, created by Wieden + Kennedy New York and starring Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin, is a fresh—and pointed—reminder of the 1996 film.
Are you up for some BGCP3TV in HD? Los Angeles Clippers stars Blake Griffin and Chris Paul have each shown, separately, that they can anchor comedy. In State Farm's Chris and Cliff campaign, Paul showed that he's perhaps the NBA's most gifted endorser. And Griffin? Well, he's done so much comedy that he has his own section on Funny or Die. Now, they've teamed up for an interesting project from Wieden + Kennedy in New York and Jordan Brand—a pair of five-minute videos that are full of quirky comedy sketches. Both are pretty amusing—not surprising, since Neal Brennan, co-creator of The Chappelle Show, served as director and co-writer on these.
Slam poetry nights can be awkward, but Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin makes it look easy—his specialty in any environment—in a new series of videos for Vizio. The ads, by David&Goliath, have the basketball star waxing poetic about his bobblehead, his tearaway pants and even his mouthguard. He's got the requisite pauses and sighs down to an art. Still, he probably shouldn't quit his day job. The clips are part of Vizio's slam dunk poetry campaign, which also includes a nifty feature on its microsite where it will compose a Griffin-esque poem based on your name and an item of your choice. Unfortunately, the power forward isn't available to recite these ditties. (He is available in gif form on this Tumblr, though.) So, grab yourself a seat at a dimly lit table, order a stiff drink and appreciate these works brought to you by Griffin. Credits below.
Blake Griffin does a lot of commercials. A lot. The NBA All-Star has jumped over cars, traveled through time and run the court with a no-game street baller named Drain.
This week, DirecTV posits that cable is worse than lots of other terrible things, Blake Griffin wants you to "Be amazing," and McDonald's chicken is literally out of this world.
IDEA: Blake Griffin is a spectacular athlete. Oddly enough, he's also a pretty good actor. "Some friends of mine directed a Kia spot he did," said Tim Ketchersid, a director at Gifted Youth, Funny or Die's commercialproduction company. "He had a paragraph of dialogue, walking backwards, one shot, and he did it perfectly every time.
