Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan Work Through Breakfast Drama in 72andSunny’s Spot for Google Duo

By Erik Oster 

Los Angeles Clippers teammates Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan star in 72andSunny’s new spot promoting Google’s video-calling app, Google Duo, entitled “Blake & DeAndre.”

The spot opens with some breakfast awkwardness, as the bottle of mustard at Jordan’s table spots Griffin grabbing breakfast with another friend after he said he’d already eaten. Griffin and Jordan carry on a video-call, via condiment bottles, and find a way to settle their differences with some help from pigs in blankets before the spot concludes with the tagline, “For duos who can’t stay mad at each other.”

The 60-second spot communicates that message in an entertaining, if slightly weird, way. Griffin and Jordan turn in convincing performances and, condiment stand-ins aside, the spot hinges on a fairly down-to-earth and relatable scenario. We’re curious to see where 72andSunny takes the approach going forward, and what celebrity duos the agency can enlist for the effort.

Slash and Axl? Dr. Dre and Suge Knight? DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince? Roger Waters and the rest of Pink Floyd?! (We’re feeling very musical today.)
