Video: The LeBrons – Episode 1 – ‘Lion’

Here goes the first episode of LeBron’s animated series. The video’s message is that “two wrongs don’t make a right.” The episode features Kid LeBron and a friend being chased by a pit bull. To keep the dog from harming Kid, Business LeBron enlists the help of none other than… a lion. The LeBrons are faced with a choice when the lion wants to attack the pit bull.

    The commercials were good, but this is not that good. Like watching The Boondocks except there is LeBron James and talking animals.

    Episode 2 – ‘Valet’
    When a ‘female associate’ of Kid LeBron wants to attack a valet driver, he enlists the help of Business LeBron to let her know that an act of that kind is bad PR and can be damaging to the brand.
    The video’s message, “park your own damn car.”

  • JTaylor21

    Swing and a miss with the bad joke. Strrrike two!

  • vtrobot

    Ha ha @ riggs and BC. Jesus Christ. I couldn’t watch the whole thing. Where is that airing and who exactly is the target audience? That seems far more damaging to a brand than yr ma getting arrested.

    If it goes up on the site, T-Money, then it’s fair game.

  • http://slamonline.com Bryan Crawford

    The “intro song is heat”? Really?

  • T-Money

    bc: fair enough. / vtrobot: isn’t it for kids?

  • snasty10

    i was actually entertained, but i love cartoons, so i guess it doesnt matter

    It says “the video uploader has not made this video available in your country” when I click it.

  • Anonymosdef

    Was there ever an article on LeBron’s deal with Fenway and how he’s now a minority stakeholder in FC Liverpool?

  • Anonymosdef

    Seems like an easy way for slam to get hits. But it makes Lebron look good so I guess thats why it’s not here but everybody else has reported on it…

  • Gregg

    LOL @ Riggs!

    shout outs to jason weaver for playing C… and Bidness Lebron is better than real lebron

  • http://www.dimemag.com Royal

    Not bad….Lebron is making big moves

    Can’t believe the Lebron Brand is trying to force cartoon LeBron down our throats. Let him recover from becoming LePippen and win a title, before a cartoon series come. Bad PR move. It was OK, until the dog and lion started talking, then I realized the show has no premise or concept, just a show about Lebrons. LOL, no way a superstar would agree to this crap. Maverick Carter must run things. BOOK IT!!!

  • RobbieJay

    So i click on it and i get a google phone link.? cool

  • Brahsef

    Aww man, besides the shameless plugs for dre beats, armani, bing, and gucci (lol) it wasn’t half bad. The animation was clean, the intro song was pretty catchy. For a animated web series, i’d say they did a pretty damn good job.

    I bet real life Lebron wishes he has cartoon Business Lebrons hairline.

    Thats all I got out of that cartoon.

  • gani

    “The uploader has not made this video available in your country.” Sheesh. I really wanted to watch this.

  • jose

    Looks like animation from the boondocks or sumthin, i wonder if he based this cartoon in Ohio too. haha
