On Feb. 20, Damian Lillard posed for photos, signed autographs and even served up a few snow cones on the Rose Garden concourse during the 2013 Trail Blazers Player Palooza season ticket holder event.
After the event, Lillard exited the Rose Garden through the loading dock, as he's done after every home game this season. But instead of heading home, Lillard wondered through the bowels of the Memorial Coliseum, former home of the Trail Blazers, until he was led into a large concrete-floored room that would serve as the set for an adidas Originals and Champs Sports commercial, a short clip of which you can see above (UPDATE:
the full version has now replaced the shorter version).
The spot, which features Lillard as an 8-bit cartoon character and Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller holding the reigns to a white stallion
, is set to air during Thursday's nationally-televised game against the Knicks on TNT. Until then, enjoy some great behind the scenes photos
from the shoot.
(Thanks to the folks at adidas and Kamp Grizzly for letting us check out the shoot and to intern Ryan for the great photos
