Together, Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks may have had their best game as a receiving tandem to date on Sunday against the Saints.
Perhaps their chemistry is stemming from their recent work behind the camera.
Cruz and Nicks are the stars of the newest Foot Locker commercial, in which exchanging Nike footwear proves to be the superior gifts compared to … fishing hats.
While Cruz is the one with the spotlight (literally) shining upon him, you cannot discount Nicks’ emotional portrayal of a disappointed gift recipient.
The add is set to makes its national television broadcast debut TONIGHT on BET’s 106 & Park. If you’re not a fan, it will air on TV regularly beginning tomorrow, December 12.
Cruz and Nicks are the latest athlete to join Footlocker’s team of superstars, a list that includes Cam Newton, Carmelo Anthony, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Dwight Howard, Ricky Rubio, Chris Bosh and Kevin Love.
I have to admit they do make me chuckle a bit.
