VIDEO: Breaking down the Spurs' new HEB commercials
Spurs continue the greatness of the only environment in which they seem fun or human with latest batch of commercials.
I have a long and established history of loving the San Antonio Spurs commercials for the Texas grocery store chain H-E-B. So when the chain unveiled this season's batch, with new star Kawhi Leonard getting in on the action, I had to do a breakdown.
"One For Each"
High point: Tony's softening tone when he says "No... because I relish our friendship."
Low point: Repeating the "whatever" joke from Parker. Would have been better as just a dismissal of Leonard.
High point: Parker and Ginobil wearing their uniform shorts under the robes.
Close second high point: "Indubitably" complete with Leonard's hand gesture.
Low point: The extended "Yes... Indeed..." sequence.
High point: "This is just how I do it, man." Leonard's understated manner is killer in these things, made all the better if you've ever had to interview him post game and listen to his four-word, mumbling answers. Also... KAWHI SMILES HERE. I didn't know that was a thing that happened, ever.
Low point: The delicates joke, I guess, but I still laughed, especially at Parker's reaction.
Grade: A+, a future underrated masterpiece.
High point: "It's good..." I was dead. Just dead, on the floor, being dead. It made me the deadest I could be from laughing.
Second high point: The coyote's consternation.
Third high point: Man and Tony's "Pow!" and "Bam!"
Low point: None.
