You probably remember the original Uncle Drew commercial. The video, which starred Kyrie Irving as a washed-up streetballer named Uncle Drew, went viral immediately and has nearly 16 million hits on YouTube to date.
Now, the 2012 Rookie of the Year is back, and he's bringing along a friend. Pepsi released "Uncle Drew: Chapter 2" this week, and it is just as creative as the first one. The new commercial co-stars Kevin Love as Wes and includes a cameo from Bill Russell.
"What these young bloods have to understand is that this game has always been, and will always be, about buckets," Russell tells Uncle Drew.
"That's what I've been trying to tell them, B," says Uncle Drew.
Together, Uncle Drew and Wes return to the street courts in Los Angeles to take on some "young bloods." In a game that may or may not be staged, Irving and Love absolutely dominate their opponents.
Not bad for a couple of old-timers.
