50 Cent Commercial To Debut During BET Awards

A new Reebok commercial

featuring 50 Cent paired with various athletes promoting Reebok’s Gxt II

sneaker will debut during the 2005 BET Music Awards tomorrow (June 28).

The “Street Sport” ads are 30 and 60 minutes and

feature 50 Cent paired with Boston Red Sox World Series MVP Manny Ramirez, Philadelphia

Eagles quarterback Donavan McNabb and WBC Boxing champ Ronald “Winky”

Wright.

The commercial features 50 Cent playing stickball on the street

with Ramirez, shadow boxing against Wright and playing street football with

McNabb.

"Filming this ad was a big opportunity for me to demonstrate

my passion for sport and show everyone that I can hold it down when it comes

to stickball, boxing and football,” 50 Cent said of the commercial. “I

never had so much fun at a commercial shoot.”

The “Street Sport” campaign was directed by Jessy

Terrero, who has directed other videos by 50 Cent.

The Gxt II is available

in stores on July 1.
