By now, if you've watched just 10 minutes of an NBA game this year, you've seen one of the creepy time-travel commercials. There are four of them: One with an old guy talking to Kevin Durant, one with a kid talking to a little Stephen Curry, one with two Knicks fans watching a high school Amar'e Stoudemire and another with a kid talking to Steve Nash at Santa Clara.
In a way, the ads are very cool. At least the idea is. I can't say the execution was spot-on because they always feel a bit cold. Like something is missing.
But of course everyone was curious as to how they were done. Because the clips of the players are entirely authentic. That's really Durant in high school putting on his sneakers. That's really Steph Curry as a kid. Via Dime Mag, here's how they made them.
