Shaq, Allen Iverson, Shawn Kemp star in nostalgic Reebok commercial (Video)

Be careful. You might close your eyes and then watch this new Reebok commercial and think you’ve taken a time machine back to 1996.

With a new logo comes a new ad campaign and that’s exactly what Reebok has done with the assistance of one-time NBA greats Shaquille O’Neal, Allen Iverson and Shawn Kemp.

The 1:17 spot features Shaq working with comedian Lil’ Duval in a barber shop, though the former Los Angeles Lakers center isn’t exactly thrilled with how Duval wears his pants. The two get into an argument over his sagging drawers with Duval making fun of Shaq’s overly tight shorts, comparing him to Shawn Kemp.

That’s where Kemp (I guess in disguise) appears, promoting the Reignman before Bad Boy rapper French Montana makes a small cameo.

The spot hits its pinnacle though when Iverson makes his grand entrance – apparently getting a haircut while wearing a hat.

Yeah. You figure that one out.

Probably not as funny as it could have been, but still solid and some nostalgic cameos for sure.
