The video wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t supposed to broadcast until Pepsi saw that this video went viral in just three weeks, nearing 10 million YouTube views.
This is a five minute Pepsi ad: A young baller in New Jersey brings his old, out of shape, grey-bearded Uncle Drew to some evening pickup games. At first the old manÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s performance is as expected Ã¢â‚¬â€œ little mobility, horrible shooting, and gassing out after every play. Uncle Drew then warms up and starts hitting jumpers, rising up for ferocious dunks, handling the ball like a yoyo and breaking ankles as he leaves everyone in disbelief.
Later the video shows that Uncle Drew is actually NBA Rookie of the year Kyrie (middle name Andrew) Irving, who does an amazing job playing an old man.
