Mike had Mars Blackmon. Blake Griffin has D’arryl Drain aka “Dr. Drain.” In his first official Jordan Brand commercial, the Clippers big man picks up a fifth man for a run and the end results are hilarious. Watch as Jumpman’s next star meets his match in the extremely self-confident “Dr. Drain.”
JB’s stepping their digital game up another notch, too. They released the “Lift Off with Blake” mobile platform, which allows users to “virtually” throw an alley-oop – D’arryl-style or otherwise – to Griffin for the throwdown. Also, at the recent Santa Monica event, they called on the homie Jacques hosting a Google+ Chat with Blake to talk about the new Super.Fly 2, joining Jordan Brand, touring China with fellow Brand athletes Carmelo and Chris Paul.
Also tossing in a shot of the gear worn in the commercial, which includes the aforementioned Super.Fly 2, Fragmented Elephant short, Air Jordan Dri-FIT crew, Air Jordan VIII, Super Flight backpack, Jordan Legend basketball and Dominate wristband, available at Jordan Brand and Nike retailers.
