Watch: LeBron James stars in brilliant Sprite commercial

Published Add your comment

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James is no stranger to the world of acting. Not only is he a fantastic basketball player - one of the best of all-time - he is forging a name for himself as a fantastic personality and is the likely candidate to play the lead in any Space Jam sequel. 

The three-time finals MVP played a starring role in the 2015 film Trainwreck and has also appeared as himself in the comedy Entourage while also hosting the 'Saturday Night Live' for the 33rd season premiere. 

He has also been in countless commercials - primarily aired in the United States of America - and his latest one with Sprite continues to enhance LeBron's reputation.

British soccer players have a notoriously patchy history when it comes to acting - take Wayne Rooney for example - while many NBA players have also struggled, but James is a natural.

In his latest commercial for the soft drink company he poked fun at previous adverts by saying he would not tell viewers to drink Sprite. 

The ad also included a role for American rapper Lil Yachty, who hit fame with his songs 'One Night' and 'Minnesota' last year. But it was the Cleveland man who really stole the show.
