Portland Trail Blazers star guard Damian Lillard has a big sponsorship deal with adidas, and he has consistently made appearances in commercials.
Now, Lillard has appeared in a new ad that will rival the character of “Cliff Paul” portrayed by Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul in State Farm spots.
Lillard stars as a popcorn man behind the counter at a movie theater, and there is even an appearance from sideline reporter Rachel Nichols.
People love Lillard.
People love Nichols.
So, the commercial is really destined for success.
You can check out the ad below:
If we could go to a movie theater and see a popcorn server that has skills like Lillard behind the counter, the movie theater experience would go up by leaps and bounds.
Seeing Lillard in that ridiculous outfit would be with the $10 that it takes to see a film in theaters these days.
Maybe one day we will be so lucky.
