Foot Locker ‘Abominable Dunkman’ Video

foot locker abominable snowman video Foot Locker Abominable Dunkman Video

John Lucas III isn’t exactly a snowman (he did drop 60 at the Rucker this summer, after all), but he most definitely got frozen as LeBron James submitted a potental career-best dunk on Sunday night.  And with LeBron himself subsequently patting Blake Griffin on the back for what might be the best slam of this young decade, we’re moving into February with more dunking momentum than any year since Vinsanity competed in the Slam Dunk Contest.  With that in mind, it’s a perfect time for Foot Locker’s ‘Hottest Month Ever’, a campaign that kicks off with the ‘Abominable Dunkman’ commercial showing how the Nike LeBron 9 and a snow covered court can result in your own reenactment of the VC-over-Fred Weis poster.  Frosty the Snowman was a jolly happy soul and probably didn’t deserve this kind of abuse, but it makes for an interesting video, and you can see the ad in full after the jump.

Amar’e Stoudemire’s Last Day at Foot Locker

“I’m back on the hardwood, so my job here at Foot Locker is going to be terminated.”

New York Knicks power forward Amar’e Stoudemire followed in the footsteps of arguably the greatest player ever at his position, when this summer during the NBA lockout, STAT took up work at a NY-area Foot Locker store. Donning the black and white stripes is probably a bit easier than exploiting your height by changing lightbulbs and rescuing cats from trees, but just as the 1998 labor dispute had Tim Duncan eschewing odd jobs for his first NBA championship, Amar’e has put in his notice with FL so he can get back to business at MSG. Click through to see the exit interview and let us know if Amar’e deserves your 2012 NBA All-Star Game vote.

Foot Locker ‘Support’

December 7th, 2011 by | 7 comments

foot locker support commercial Foot Locker Support

“Of course I support her. She’s my family.”

Foot Locker has been putting out comical ads that would appeal to even the most casual sneakerhead for a while now, and the latest is easily among the most clever yet. Maybe ‘cunning’ is the word, because the plot of this video sees a teenage kid welcome his older sister back into mom and dad’s house, only, there are a couple of strings attached. Namely, the laces from the Nike Free Run+ 2 (size 10.5, please) means the unnamed high school hero is looking to extort some extra gifts in exchange for longer waits for the bathroom. It’s family negotiation at its best-worst, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do to secure fresh kicks during the holidays. Click through to see the video in full and let us know how they compare to some of the other funny sneaker commercials we’ve seen over the years.

foot locker art prize winner Foot Locker Art Prize Contest Winner

Foot Locker is no stranger to sneaker-centric competitions, having just this year created a 3-point shootout online game and run a March Madness contest, but their latest was by far the most intensive.  The Foot Locker Art Prize was dubbed ‘The World’s Richest Colouring Competition’ thanks to the $50,001 grand prize afforded to 24 year old Brisbane, Austrailia native Kalin Thompson on the strength of his ‘Forbidden Fruit’ work.  The insane Nike Air Force 1 Mid Thompson design was hailed by noted customizer and artist Dave White as “A complete knockout,” and it earned him the cash prize along with a 1 of 1 Air Force 1 based on his work as designed by Sekure D.  click through to see what 400 hours spent on a shoe design looks like and let us know how these works compare to the other sneaker-themed art we’ve seen here on Sneaker News.  via SF
