Basketball fans have gotten used to seeing Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving playing Uncle Drew for various Pepsi commercials over the years. For the most part, the commercials have involved Irving embarrassing local pick-up basketball players dressed up in the old man makeup. For this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend though, Uncle Drew makes his return with a couple of friends watching the All-Star Game in a pizza shop with one member of the group trying to figure out who he should vote in to the game.
The short spot turns into a typical sports argument with friends talking over and eventually yelling at each other. Watch it below.
As good as this video is, I’m still partial to the first few Uncle Drew videos featuring Irving just demolishing people to everyone’s delight. This is by far my favorite.
If you need some entertainment while waiting for Irving to play in the All-Star Game on Sunday, the full Uncle Drew catalog can be found here.
