One-time Powerade pitch-man Lebron James recently completed filming a commercial for glaceau vitamin water, owned by Coke.
No word yet on when the commercial may air, but the Cleveland Leader reported that the all-star forward plays a lawyer in the spot.
James sent the following quote to the Associated Press:
‘You want people to see a different side of you. It would be easy for me to do a commercial on the basketball court, shooting a ball through a hoop. People see me do that everyday and they see the highlights all the time. ”But in my ads you see me doing other things. A company like VitaminWater has always done things differently, so it was easy. I didn’t even have to suggest it. They already had it going, so it was easy to fit in.”
