Allen Iverson makes a television commercial

In addition to playing professional basketball, Allen Iverson also sometimes stars in television commercials. This summer, he has signed a contract to make commercials for Seven Up, aka the Uncola. Today is the first day of shooting. Here are some exclusive photos:

Above: Allen Iverson battles a dragon for the can of Seven Up. This scene took many takes to get it right.

Below: Now that Allen Iverson has conquered the dragon, he climbs on its back and rides away -- all while carrying a battle flag and a can of crisp, refreshing Seven Up.


  1. Wow - I didn't know 7-Up can in bottles that big!! Bigger than 6'9" Karl Malone even! Now that's refreshment.

  2. The bottle of 7-Up is just a little bit smaller than Karl Malone if he's wearing his bandana, but it's a little bitter bigger if he's not. It's hard to tell from the picture.

    As for Karl Malone being only 6'9" -- I was sure he is taller than that, but then I looked it up and you were correct. Shows what I know.

  3. I was surprised by the unexpected twists and turns in this story-never did I expect he would fly away on a dragon.

  4. You know, sometimes when people don't have daughter's to hang out with they go hang out with real people...

    but, if you had been doing that, then we wouldn't have gotten to see this blog posting, so i guess i'm glad your not.
