Pepsi Max released a YouTube video starring NBA player Kyrie Irving on May 18 that’s already received 3.1 million views. It’s accrued nearly 20,000 likes to just 400 dislikes on the video site.
The 5-minute spot, dubbed “Uncle Drew,” features Irving dressed up to play an elderly man who eventually partakes in a pickup basketball game in Bloomfield, NJ.
