Space Jam: Blake Griffin plays against Monstars in Foot Locker ad
It may not be that Space Jam sequel we’ve been hearing about, but the Monstars are back, this time facing Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers in a Jordan Brand-produced ad with Foot Locker.
In the original Space Jam, Bugs Bunny and his fellow Looney Tunes enlist Michael Jordan (the basketball legend, not the Creed star) to help beat these physically enhanced aliens in a game of b-ball. Now, the Monstars have set their sights on “the other guys” on Earth.
Ending their winning streak is a group of young kids who arm themselves with athletic gear, Jordan sneakers (of course), and Griffin himself with the help of Bugs. Jimmy Butler, player for the Chicago Bulls, also makes an appearance as this tale’s narrator.
Back in May, word got out that director Justin Lin (Star Trek Beyond) and LeBron James were in talks for Space Jam 2 — with or without the blessing of original director Joe Pytka. While that continues to be sorted out, we at least have this ad.
Watch the new ad above.
