If you haven’t yet seen this Pepsi MAX commercial featuring NBA Rookie of the Year and St. Patrick High School alum Kyrie Irving, check it out.
Irving follows in the footsteps of Larry Johnson as “Grandmama” in a Converse sneaker ad and LeBron James as “The LeBrons” in a Nike commercial among Rookies of the Year with their own commercials.
Irving’s acting skills shouldn’t come as a shock. He starred in a version of Disney’s High School Musical while at St. Pat’s.
Drederick Irving, Kyrie’s dad and a former pro in Australia, even makes a cameo on the sidelines.
