Created by BBDO New York, this Foot Locker spot titled “The Letter” stars Houston Rockets forward P.J. Tucker, singer and model Pia Mia, and actor JD McCrary as they fulfill what they believe to be a budding sneakerhead’s dreams of owning a coveted pair of Nike Air Max shoes--with a humorous twist. 

It turns out the youngster is sending out what amounts to a form letter, feigning that he’s a deeply devoted fan in order to get the sneakers he covets. And towards that end, we see he’s been pretty successful.

Malik Vitthal of The Corner Shop directed “The Letter” which is running online and on television. The TV debut was during Thursday’s (6/20) coverage of the NBA draft.
