Landon Donavon joins James Harden in second 'short term memory' Foot Locker Ad

Published Add your comment

Landon Donavon has become the next great sports star to intrigue NBA superstar James Harden with his 'short term memory' in the second instalment of the new Foot Locker commercials.

Foot Locker recently began a campaign centered around Rockets shooting guard Harden who was on a mission to take his game to the next level and become a great of the NBA.

Harden quickly discovers via the help of some former NBA greats Charles Barkley and Scottie Pippen that the key to their success is their 'short term memory', finding a way to completely forget the bad incidents of their careers, or perhaps just pleading ignorance.

Either way, Foot Locker has released their second instalment of the 'short memory' campaign and this time it includes Los Angeles Galaxy superstar Landon Donavon who like Barkley and Pippen, showcases his incredible short term memory.

Donavon was controversially left off the United States national football team roster for the 2014 World Cup, previously captaining the side at prior tournaments, his omission by Head Coach Jürgen Klinsmann shocked US fans.

Foot Locker cleverly worked off this fact and presented an advert in which James Harden would learn first hand that Donavon doesn't remember his summer and is convinced he had a great time.

In a rather awkward exchange where Harden realises he has come across another sporting great who refuses to acknowledge a low point in his career, it unfolds in rather humorous fashion.

Part two of 'Short Memory' doesn't quite outshine the original advert involving Barkley and Pippen due toe the blasphemous statement made by Pippen in regards to being the greatest Chicago Bull of all time.
