About a week ago, we all had a chance to “enjoy” Seth MacFarlane’s first tiny YouTube commercial for the Nike LeBron 8. Now, we get our second installment in this somewhat bizarre series.
This time around, we learn that LeBron James gets all of his basketball powers from his shoes and when he takes them off he turns in to a science nerd. That makes sense, because if you’ve seen “Like Mike” and “Like Mike 2: Streetball” then you know that basketball powers are often transferred through sneakers. Classic origin story.
As for the animated short after the commercial — that’s your call. It’s a Seth MacFarlane cartoon about the old saying about glass houses and it’s about as funny as you’d expect as long as you’re not expecting it to be funny at all.
