Blake Griffin as Mars Blackmon for Jordan Cameron Viral Campaign
Has the acting bug bitten Blake Griffin? Blake’s somewhat quiet demeanor is constantly belied by his on-court theatrics and earth-shattering dunks, and after witnessing his versatile performances during the 2011 NBA All-Star Weekend, it’s clear that Blake loves to put on a show. His most recent acting gig was actually to help out the draft stock of his friend Jordan Cameron, star Tight End for the USC Trojans and 2011 NFL Draft top prospect; in this viral campaign, Blake shed his Clippers uniform for one Mars Blackmon (or ‘Blake’mon) and revisited the classic Air Jordan commercial that featured Spike Lee and Michael Jordan. While neither Nike nor Jordan Brand had anything at all to do with this mini-project, Sneaker News readers stirred up quite a debate regarding Blake possibly being the next Nike or Jordan Brand signature athlete. However, this was more along the lines of playful theatrics than marketing, but it would be interesting to see Blake have his own signature shoe with the Swoosh or Jumpman.
