BBDO New York is back at it again for Foot Locker, continuing a fairly winning campaign for the sportswear/footwear chain and shifting this time from NBA stars to NFL ones. Before the chants of “Cruuuuuuuuuz” ensue, let us tell you that this latest advert, which premiered last night, does indeed star New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz and his counterpart/teammate, Hakeem Nicks. Yes, Hakeem, we would react/act the same way were we to receive a fishing hat for Christmas, and therein lies the plot of this spot. The jury’s still out, though, on who’s the better thespian, the Giants wideouts or QB Eli Manning. Credits after the jump.
