It seems like it's another week, another national commercial for Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard.
The latest blow in Lillard's campaign to make our eyeballs his personal fiefdom, this spot for Adidas/NBA Swingman Jerseys in which Lillard gets his very own body double:
Excerpt from the Press Release:
Adidas and the NBA today debut a new TV commercial featuring NBA All-Star Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers.
The spot is the latest installment in a series of commercials celebrating the launch of the revamped NBA Swingman jersey. Previous commercials starred Dwight Howard of the Houston Rockets and Andrew Wiggins of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Additional commercials featuring Kenneth Faried of the Denver Nuggets and Joakim Noah of the Chicago Bulls will follow in the coming days.
Created by adidas, the commercial is a humorous take on the busy lives of NBA athletes. In the spot, Lillard requires the assistance of a "swingman" body-double to help meet his many obligations from practice, to photo shoots, to interviews and pregame preparation.
This spot follows Lillard's appearance in the NBA's Gear Up campaign, a guest spot on the Conan Show, and the announcement of Lillard's new signature shoe. This guy? He's doing alright.
