If you thought Scottie Pippen’s self-inflated hyperbole was funny, Landon Donovan manages to one-up Pip in the newest Foot Locker ‘Short Memory’ ad spot.
In the clip, the former U.S. Soccer captain is oblivious to the fact that he was cut from U.S. Men’s National Team right before this summer’s World Cup. “Like they’d ever cut me. I’m the captain,” Donovan quips as Harden stands there slightly confused and amused all at once. By the end of this series, Harden’s going to know that in order to be great, players and regular people alike have to leave the past behind.
Also just released, check out the blooper reel from the first spot which starred Harden, the aforementioned Pippen and Charles Barkley. It’s filled with a lot of Chuck being Chuck, which translates to a lot of laughs.
