Tracy Morgan made his return to greatness as part of Foot Locker’s “Week of Greatness” event. The comedian introduced two new commercials shot by worldwide agency BBDO. The “Weeks of Greatness” highlights the hottest sneakers and gear releases worldwide, beginning on Saturday, Nov 21.
An excited Tracey was happy to partner with Foot Locker and even get his family in on the action. “I had a great time working with Foot Locker and was grateful to work with my wife and daughter in one of the spots,” said Morgan. “It means a lot to me to be able to team up with Foot Locker on their ‘Week of Greatness.’ I’m happy to do this for my fans and hope to make them laugh during one of the biggest weeks of the year!”
Both commercials highlight Morgan’s unique comic style. In “Imitators,” Morgan reflects on coming back strong to ensure imitators won’t try to take his place. In the spot, he accuses his in-home chef and a flower delivery man of trying to replace him.
In “Greatness in Common,” Morgan compares what his return to greatness has in common with the return of the “Week of Greatness,” including a birthday surprise for Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The “Week of Greatness” features premium releases from top brands such as Nike, adidas, Jordan, Under Armour, PUMA, Timberland, New Balance and ASICS. New releases will drop every day during the “Week of Greatness.” Get all of the gear over at FootLocker.com
