In keeping with the new slogan of Pepsi MAX as “a zero calorie cola in disguise,” witness 2011 NBA rookie of the year Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers take to a pickup game in Bloomfield, New Jersey disguised as the elderly “Uncle Drew.” The players that night thought they were witnessing a documentary being shot on one member named Kevin, but when a player gets injured, Kevin’s creaky old “Uncle Drew” steps in. It takes the old man a few minutes to get warmed up, but once he does, it’s not long before he starts turning up the heat and unleashing his full arsenal of long range jumpers, ankle-breaking crossovers, and alley-oops on his unsuspecting “youngblood” opponents. And be sure to stick around until the end of the video to see how makeup artists meticulously transformed Kyrie into Uncle Drew.
