This recent Chris Robinson-directed AT&T spot out of Sanders\Wingo, Austin, TX stars NBA star Blake Griffin of the LA Clippers casually shooting hoops with some friends at the gym. When his friends challenge his skills after an underwhelming shot, Griffin steps up his game, effortlessly making an elaborate slam dunk, rewarding himself with a virtual kiss via his AT&T cell phone.
The spot was filmed in Toronto, Canada in a brief 4 hour window before Griffin needed to get ready for a LA Clippers vs. Toronto Raptors game. Griffin did not slack on skills or style in prep for his game, though, shaking the whole building while effortlessly making slam dunk after slam dunk. Though he has little experience in the TV, Film and Commercial world, he is no stranger to media exposure and was a true natural on set. Says director Chris Robinson, “He’s got an easy charisma and confidence that I think comes across well on the screen and was a pleasure to work with. A true pro.”
