Video: LeBron James in a McDonald’s Commercial

Free fries!

Here’s a new McDonald’s commercial featuring LeBron James, in which a narrator jokingly takes a shot at Bron for saying he’d win all those Championships. Gotta give the man credit for having a solid sense of humor. Then he wins free fries, which is always a good thing. (H/T: AdAge)

    now that was pretty nice. Lebron is making fun of himself the entire summer. Still better then the media and other teams fans doing it.

    7 sounds about right

    it’s a brilliant strategy by lrmr or w+k or nike or whomever is behind this. bron is spending the summer poking fun at himself so that there won’t be anything left for the haters to say. if you’re a pure bron hater, where’s the fun if he’s laughing too?

    @T-Money: And no doubt getting paid a sh*tload to do it as well.

    I don´t get why people are joking about the whole championship thing. Lebron has proven that he is highly overrated, and does not have the presence of mind that it takes to dominate a game. Guys like MJ, Bird, Magic, they had that presence of mind, where they´d control the flow of the game, and constantly make things happen on both ends of the floor. Lebron plays the tempo the game is going, he doesn´t take control, because he doesn´t know how, and keeps playing reckless basketball. Wade is even more of the same, so they´re not a good fit on the same team.

    yeah guys, let’s lay off this guy. He just jumped ship and joined a team with 2 stars and choked when it mattered the most. Geez… he had to take a pay cut for crying out loud!!!

    Brilliant? I don’t know about that. “What Should I Do” was brilliant. This? This is just a McDonald’s commercial.

    dude needs a hairline transplant, stat!

  • robb

    Time to shave your head Lebron. No but seriously, making jokes about him not winning championships or not performing in the 4th got old. The next commercial will have Lebron paying just $1.75 and keeping a quarter. ZZZZZ.

    Give LeBron another year or two. He has the potential to be the G.O.A.T.

    I’d poke fun at myself allllll day long if McDonald’s was paying me what they paying dude too.

    Haters will still hate. However, a big LeBron critique I hear is that he comes off as arrogant. If he’s making fun of himself, it makes him a tad more likeable. This commerical sucks though. His own twitter jab about his hairline were way better than this.

    I’m no LeBron fan, but I’m lovin’ this commercial.

    Another bad PR move, first playing flag football, letting people know your financial adviser is Hebrew and now you are in McDonald’s commercials for monopoly game. McDonald was better having Lebron talk about the dollar menu and how he always have 3 quarters for it, but can never find the 4th quarter to buy in. This is LeCorny and now his marketing team is trying to find ways to change his LeChoke perception, yea a McDonald’s commercial really changes that. LePippen needs to get some better people around him, yes men don’t work. Really people he is making fun of himself in a McDonald’s commercial. WHAT HAS AMERICA COME TO. Lebron please think before doing things for yourself. BOOK IT!!!

  • T-Money

    To be clear, i think the strategy is brilliant – not this ad. The seed is on that white girl.

  • Marcel

    Comment @2:49p.m. is not me.
    Almost goes without saying.

    Letting people know your financial adviser is Hebrew? Wait what? Please elaborate on this story.

    @Philosopher 11:23, DUH

    the real question: When is the last time we saw Bron without a full beard? I think 2005 is the answer? because he had it when he went to the finals in 06
