Draymond Green Fails to Recognize Horace Grant in Foot Locker's Latest Ad

A Comedy of Mistaken Identity

Editor's Pick

Foot Locker's excellent use of celebrities in its ads continues, with a new well-scripted spot featuring Draymond Green, NBA vet Horace Grant and Michelle Williams of "Destiny's Child."

In the ad, which plays out like some kind of Shakespearean comedy of mistaken identity, Green fails to recognize Grant (who's advising him that he needs to find a way to "stand out") without his famous goggles, and neither of them recognizes Williams, taking her for a waitress. Plus, there's a fantastically edited endline, which we won't spoil here.

The ad follows last month's hilarious outing for James Harden and his "inner voice," played by Colin Farrell, for the brand.
