Foot Locker Kicks Off Their #WeekofGreatness

Sneaker heads worldwide have been following Foot Locker’s popular campaign and now it’s here. Foot Locker’s Week of Greatness kicked off yesterday and eager fans were more than ready a week of the season’s hottest sneaker launches.

Easily becoming the NBA funny man, the Cleveland Cavalier’s point guard Kyrie Irving joined Foot Locker as the face of the Week of Greatness and shot for their witty campaign commercial. The 2011-2012 NBA Rookie of the Year and newest member of Foot Locker Team Approved was humbled to be chosen for the campaign. “It’s truly a blessing, more or less for my family and myself. And to have the Cleveland Cavaliers incorporated in all of this, and to get national TV exposure—we don’t get that much of that here. So it’s a blessing.”

Foot Locker couldn’t have chosen a better week to launch their special week. It’s also Black Friday week which does amazing numbers for retailers. So, whether you are in line for the Jordan 1 Flight “Elephant Pack” or the Nike Air Foamposite One “Polarized Pink” this week is for you. I am not a sneaker head but I got you!

Nicki Minaj Releases Pink Friday Fragrance Commercial

On top of everything else she is doing, Nicki Minaj is taking this time to  push her brand new Pink Friday fragrance for the holiday season. She has done the appearances and photo shoots but what’s promotion without a commercial? Nicki released the official Pink Friday fragrance commercial and it is visually appealing just like everything else she attaches her name to. Nicki’s Pink Friday fragrance can be found now at Macy’s stores nationwide.

Ludacris Releases “Conjure” Commercial

If you follow Ludacris on Instagram or Twitter, you already know that he has been pushing his Conjure cognac heavy. The rapper/actor dropped a new commercial for the brand. The commercial features R&B singer D. Woods and was directed by actor Lorenz Tate.

Maybe it’s just me but this Conjure commercial reminds me of the Ciroc commercial. You take a look at it below and let me know what you think.

Alicia Keys + Reebok Releases New Classics Commercial (BTS Included)

No surprise…A. Keys teamed up with Reebok for a new sneaker line. Photos of the line hit the net earlier this week along with her brand new single “Girl On Fire”. Keys is full of debuts this week because the commercial for her sneaker was just released.

The commercial was directed by Samuel Bayer and styled by June Ambrose and features Keys’ Freestyle Hi, Freestyle Double Bubble, Classic Nylon Slim and Princess designs. Watch the commercial and BTS footage below.

Jordan’s ‘This Is Where It Starts’ Ad Commercial

Jordan‘s newest commercial couldn’t have come at a better time. By now, we are all so deep into the 2012 Summer Olympics and our eyes are glued to the game’s related commercials. Jordan’s new commercial is the perfect addition to the lineup.

This one minute commercial follows the ongoing rivalry between an  international and American basketball player from childhood to their appearance in the Olympic games.

One of my favorite commercials from the popular sneaker brand.

Jay-Z Goes Commerical

Jay-Z is considered a very notable investor. Adding to his list of investments is Duracell’s Powermat. Jay-Z is not only putting up funds but popping up in the Powermat’s ads.

Budweiser & Jay-Z’s “Made In America” concert is right around the corner and a new commercial was unveiled for those highly anticipating the music festival. The entire commercial is narrated by Mr. Carter himself.

Pepsi’s “Live for Now” Commercial featuring Nicki Minaj

Pepsi slightly remixed Nicki Minaj‘s platinum selling single, “Moment 4 Life” for their new commercial. Minaj doesn’t appear in the “Live for Now” commercial until the end but the Pepsi commercial definitely wouldn’t have been the same without her.

“Live for Now,” the overarching campaign, underscores Pepsi’s attempt at re-associating itself with pop culture. The company has a lot riding on the advertisements, as its marquee beverage was recently knocked out of the No. 2 spot, behind Diet Coke (Coke remains the top soda). [SOURCE]

Rick Ross’ Reebok Campaign Commercial

Since wanting to spark some interest in their brand and become a staple in hip hop fashion again, Reebok has aligned its self with the self-proclaimed “Boss” Rick Ross.

Ross welcomes us to his city and takes us all the way to his MMG home while wearing the Reebok Classic Sneaker in his new commercial for the brand’s “It Takes A Lot to Make A Classic” Campaign. Watch below.

Ross also sat down with Reebok for a short promo interview.

Andre 3000 for Gillette Campaign

Seems like we are having no luck getting new music from Andre 3000 but the rapper in demand is gracing the commercial campaign scene as one of three faces of  Gillette’s “Masters of Style” campaign for the Fusion ProGlide Styler. Adrien Brody and Gael Garcia Bernal joins Andre in this campaign.

As a campaign bonus, Andre 3000 talks style with Gillette. I really wish he would talk about cutting those braids but I guess for now it will just remain wishful thinking.
