Finally, Jon Heder gets a chance to channel his inner Rob Riggle/Tyler Hansbrough/J.E. Skeets while simultaneously promoting both the NBA and ESPN. It’s been a long time coming, and it’s a natural fit because nothing says “professional basketball” like the guy who played Napoleon Dynamite.
It’s been a big week for character actors in NBA advertisements. Here’s hoping someone gives Luiz Guzmán a buzz.
Derrick Rose and Kevin Durant commercials are after the jump. Enjoy the Hederssance while it lasts.
I’m not a huge fan of these. They feel pretty “let’s get an awkward guy to act super obnoxious and wacky” to me. That being said, Heder is doing an amazing impression of my dad, so I’m not too mad at this series of promotions.
But what do you think? Let us know in the comments.
